Oh - then I was lucky to ask before doing something stupid
How can I get it clean ?
Issue is when I used it last time I had to take off & put back the lower unit of my Yamaha .
Could not avoid that my dirty greasy fingers left some traces on the great yellow drysuit ..
Fo rnow I used warm water and a soft brush with some soap .
Looks better but Yamaha grease is really sticky ..

I just dip mine and shake it around the bin a little after every salt water immersion. No chemicals no cleaners, just clean fresh water. I put my dry gloves on and just hold the neck seal shut. Then hang it to dry in the bathtub area. If the inside needs to be washed it is again done with just fresh water and that is rarely done.

You could try as hot of wAter as your hands can stand with dish washing liquid.

If you need to get rid of the grease try a little Trigene - should do the trick.

The more I think about it, if it was important to me, I would use a harsh chemical like Acetone or MEK applied to a rag to wipe the grease off. After all it the same chemical used when building the suit and changing seals.

Mild soap, warm water, and a medium to soft bristle brush. Lay it out flat, and have at that side, then flip the suit.
