I heartedly recommend the use of REVIVAL INFLATABLE RESTORER. It's bloody expensive (13.00 per ltr) but once used it will clean the toughest stain, grease, road tar and as my own experience has shown, inflatable paint.

As one reader advised, it's sole destroying work and will take time.

Once you've used REVIVAL you'll be as hooked as me, I guarantee it.

Most decent inflatable stockists should have it however, I use MGA in Rochdale Lancs.

Hi MeMe, I need to remove tube paint completely off my rib, would "revival" be good enough for this job.
Thanks

Hi Graeme, just noticed your post to me, sorry I'm 12 months late in replying, it just popped up when I was trying to do something lol.
