Tube cleaner

The tubes on my RIB are starting to fade and look a bit stained and weathered. Any ideas on how to bring back to life please? I'm not sure how you tell if PVC or hypalon. Thanks

good stuff but expensive.

nearly cried when I found it in the locker, tipped over and had leaked out

TFR is great if you don't care about something but it will kill colour and shine with regular use plus also you have to decide how strong to make it!

keep the tfr for rough jobs and use rib cleaner for the pride and joy
