Cleaning your RIB. :)))))))))))

I know this is a really key topic of conversation on here so I just thought I would revive it one more time to say that having just used some of the Rib Revive stuff from RibShop I am amazed at how good it was. It actually turned the water a gray blue colour as it got rid of all the engrained dirt and crap and clearly some of my tube as well

I thought my RIB was clean before I tried this stuff now it looks like new.

Don't waste any time with these homegrown cleaners this stuff really does work!

It is something we want to get into stock, we are currently having a prototype made up, once we are happy with it and have pricing set I will let you know.

Thanks

Ribshop

Chris

I agree, Rib Revive is by far the best stuff I have used and if you then apply 3m Conditioner after wards you get a nice shine as well.

Ribshop sell the 3m stuff as well.

I was going to buy some of the 3M conditioner/protector for my new RIB but thought it a bit expensive, so started looking at alternatives. Ended up buying this stuff http://www.pro-detailing.co.uk/produ...od=158&pcat=26, but have not tried it yet (because my RIB is still being built!).

Renovo market a marine vinyl protector but it is exactly the same product as the car vinyl stuff I bought (I checked with them) and they also confirmed it is suitable for use on PVC and/or Hypalon.

Seems to have great results on classic car tops, so looking forward to trying it on the RIB!

Cleaner

3M Cleaner is for sale at rib shop for only 12.89 and it lasts a while, I have used the same bottle at least 3 times on our boat.Thought it was a good deal.
