Fabric impression tubes

If anyone has a rib with this finish, out of interest what do you find is the best way of cleaning them, I've used all types of soaps and car products but still no luck on getting them right.

I just use a soft deck brush and water after each trip. I was a bit worried about whether the impression finish would be difficult to keep clean but the tubes still look like new after a year. Ribeye gave me a sample cleaner 'Blue Marine GUMEMP 100' which I've seen get more stubborn marks off but I've not needed yet.

Tony T's boat Domino has the fabric finish (& very smart it looks too) He uses good old TFR which we've been praising for years, cheap, easily available, doesn't harm the tubes & works.
