Fairy Power Spray works wonders too. It's all about the Surfactants!

Petrol and oil dispersant worked wonders on the RIBs off the standby boats. The downside was the pot scourers would scratch. This is ok on an. 8 year old tube with battle scars, but I would experiment with different pads before using it on a shiny rib.

The other thing is the standard thinners, that works as well. I would only do this outside and safely.

Both techniques did bring the tubes up like new, nowadays there are good products out there, but back in the day, anything could come in handy!!

Another thumbs up for Fairy power spray and a green scourer. Whisper recommended it to me for my D class and it worked a treat.

If you have newer tubes and don't want to scratch them use the white (non-stick pan) scourers.
I have used Fairy Power Spray, TFR and many other products and consider the Fairy product to be the most effective cleaner. However, I occasionally wonder (as it is a caustic product) if it really is completely harmless to hypalon, especially having seen what it does to my hands if I don't wear the marigolds!!
