I have just used MR Muscle oven cleaner on my tubes (I would post some pics but my phone won't let me download them). They were very very dirty and faded from 4 years in Barbados sun! but now they are yellow . Will post pics when I get my phone to work

So are you sticking with the old tubes then?

303 samples

Hi

Just to repeat. Send me your postal address and, provided it's in the UK, I will send you a sample of the 303 Cleaner and Protectant to try FOC!.
Dilute the cleaner in water to about a ltre and spray on. Use hot water if the RIB tubes are particularly dirty. Once clean use the 303 protectant to give a "like new" finish that is protected against UV fade (when used regularly… ie you will eventually have to buy some more…… I hope!)
303 is envirionmentally safe and you can wash vegetables in it diluted or use it neat to degrease an oil tanker! and it will degrease an engine!
The product has been endorsed by Henshaws by the MD Mr David Brittell no less... any queries feel free to get in touch.
RIB's can look beautiful again, believe me

happy to help

Tue.....you do know that Mr Muscle oven clean is highly corrosive dont you !!! i'd have been afraid of it melting the glue on the seams !!

Phil/Dan ...you guys crack me up, in actual fact i've got the kids next door trained so well that they not only clean my boat, get it ready to go out and clean all my kit again after i get home, in fact last time i went out i ducked in doors for the loo and came out to find the two year old flushing the engine through
I've got him so well trained that not only does he bring me out a beer on command but he brings it from his Dads fridge not mine

Train them young i say...the older one's just wana muck about with the water and nick ya beers
