I have some of those black dots also. Have tried a number of things to get rid off them Cillit bang mould remover seems the best so far but they are still there so would be interested to know too Biff if you have managed to find something to shift them?

I had them on my scorpion tubes. Right in all of the dimples in the fabric.

Never found anything to get rid of them and they got more prominent over the ten years.
Eventually I got rid of them where the outer layer of hypalon started peeling off after 15 years in the sun.

None on my new tubes :-)

I had them on my yellow caribe. I found Softscrub worked well. It's a thick bleach based kitchen cleaner here in the States. The bleach did it but the paste format worked better to keep it in the right place

Oh ok so the best answer so far is to leave the tubes for 15 years until the hypalon peels off. They do say time is a great healer!!😝😝😝

Cover is breathable and I got the black spots with no cover, I have found some gear to shift them and I'm thinking of marketing it, I've spent countless hours testing different stuff so I'm probably looking for a little payback, I think that's not to unreasonable

Well done on the Spot Reducing Cream Biff - shame it came too late for Gotchi. I can't decide whether to:
  1. Congratulate you
  2. Order some
  3. Hit you for Trade membership
