Before using ribshine try this

http://www.rib-shop.com/product.asp?...hFor=&PT_ID=22

Its quite causticstuff and takes allthe grime and disrt out of the hypalon it turned the water blue on my old Blue tubed rib so dont leave it on too long !

Once you have give the whol tube a good going over then use the 3M stuff or ribshine to renew the shine and give a protective coating.

Other options could be to try some toulene if you are not satisfied once you have used the RibRevive.
