Cleaning your rib before the winter storage

Hi , Hope you can advise.... New to the rib world but planning to give it a thorough clean before its stored in a well isolated garage.... On accessories and cleaning products I noticed you pay top dollar so wondered what you guys are using to clean your boat ... Would you go for the "marine" cleaning products or do normal more affordable house hold cleaning products sufficient? txs

Winter storage??? if you store it then you can't use it.

For all the GRP use DAZ washing powder, for tubes - Inflatable Boat Cleaning & Finishing Guide | Polymarine Paints, Adhesives, Parts & Accessories

I use fairy power spray to clean and Aerospace 303 Protectant to finish, half the price of anything with the word marine on it. I don't however bother to thoroughly clean before the winter as no matter how well I wrap it up its always dirty again in the spring.
