Miracle Tube Cleaner

This may be like teaching you all to suck eggs, but discovered a fantastic cheap alternative to all those expensive "RIB specific" cleaners out there. Used plain liquid detergent from Sainsbury's...you know, the stuff that comes in little plastic sachets. Three sachets did a fantastic job on the tubes of my 6m boat. All for about 50p and an hours work. And believe me they were bloody filthy/oxidised etc.

Just a suggestion........

Have a great weekend, especially if you're out in Plymouth sound or on the Eddtystone reef!

Jon

Typical....

A lot depends on whose elbow it came from - if it was Kylie's or Anna Kourinikova's I wouldn't mind too much!!!
