Red PVC specific cleaning questions.
Hi all, I promise I have ran a search and some very helpful information but am still left wanting for some advice please.
Have a red Valiant with PVC tubes and am here in Spain where the sun wrecks anything in short order especially "red" anythings.......
This boat hasn't ben loved at all over the last few years and suffers from the following:
Orangey red has turned Crimson in areas
Orangey red has turned milky white in other areas
Tubes generally are very dirty with a good number of black marks.
Now, I've seen one thread recommending gentle use of thinners on Hypalon tubes. Is it ok to apply this technique on PVC too?
I'm a bit stuck for products locally but could probably get some stuff shipped down from blighty. So, I have no idea where to get Sugar soap from here but MAY be able to get hold of some clay tile sealant as clay tiles are used quite extensively here.
I'd really appreciate some advice on where to start and by that I mean which technique and which product to use on each of the different areas highlighted above.
The industrial strength detergent one local guy recommended did nothing at all to help. Some benefit was gained today using the scouring pad alone but bejesus it's heavy going.
Thanx in advance.
