tube cleaning

We bought a yellow rib from the UK a few years ago, the guy who sold it to us use car polish on the tubes to make them look clean and new!!!. We are now left with the problem of every time we go on the boat we get covered in the yellow polish. Ruined clothes and we look very stange whe we pull into a quay we look like the Yellow family!!!! Would appreciate if anyone could recommend anything to stop this polish coming off .
