I only use this stuff. I've tried a few others inc. concentates and have found this the best. Be careful with it though. Only use 50:50 dilute with water. Apply with rubber gloves and a big sponge, rinse straight away. Don't let it dry on the tubes. Do only half of one side at a time. When dry the tubes will need some sort of protectant pretty soon as they'll be stripped bare.

Protector

Mollers

What tube protector do you use?

Do you seal the black rubber?

I found the pre mix a bit too dilute - get the concentrate and mix it 50/50 - much easier and cheaper!!!

Use a soft scrubbing brush - Tesco have got some perfect ones - great for alloy wheels as well.....

I was using Polymarine which was good, but tedious to apply. Now been converted to Amoral 303 (spray bottle) which is best sourced from hot-tub suppliers as it's a general UV protectant as used on hot-tub lids.
