RIB cleaning

New to this forum, i've got a couple of RIBs and just wondered if anyone knows of any good cleaners, tend to be a right pain.. Nothing seems to bring back colour. Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the forum. May i suggest you do a search as there has been plenty threads over the years on the pro's and con's of different cleaners. In fact there is one just the other day. Honest you will save yourself time!

Another vote for Fairy Power Spray.

not a recent fad, been using it for at least 7 years now.

Spray on
light sponge (no hard rubbing)
leave 15-40 mins
rinse off (may have to light sponge again if it dries in this hot weather)

comes up like new every time

TFR. is pretty good stuff, you need to dilute it more, it's much to strong if you don't. Try a couple of eggcup fulls per bucket, adjust either way if necessary.
