Need to find someone with the special noxious cleaner - any ideas who I could call? No one in Lymington has the kit.

Shmuffex worked really well on my old rib. Some areas needed two goes but it made a big difference to what was looking rather grim.

Tried that and most other generic mould removal products on the market without success. Shmuffex is the only thing that worked.

Hypochlorite (caustic soda) is the active ingredient in TFR, recommended by Orca for cleaning Hypalon. TFR is cheap as chips.

Iíve used sodium hypochlorite with excellent results - see thread link below.

Caustic soda, is sodium hydroxide.

I stand corrected
Hypochlorite is bleach.
Hydroxide as you say, is caustic soda. TFR has Hydroxide in it.
