methinks I have to get the elbow grease and waashing powder going. My housekeeper at the hotel swears by the stuff as well.

I found the TFR liquid and hardcore cleaners just end up leaving dribble marks etc. They're a pain the ass to use as you are constantly applying/washing off every inch you do of the tube.

CIF, washing powder etc far better it would appear.

I found that with the Rib Revive, certainly on orange anyway (not done the Vipermax yet though early indications are that the theory that grey is supposed to be more UV/fade resistant is b*llocks...)

It was OK as long as you washed it all straight off with a fair amount of pressure (mains pressure here is about 4 bar) but any residue would leave horrible marks and you'd need to do it again.
