Hi all our dive club rib has very dirty tubes, what do you guys recomend to clean them with, in the past I have used t-cut with very good results, but Im not sure if it does any damage what do you think.

Tube cleaning

I don't think tubes are very sensitive to cleaning agents, to date I have had no problem with cleaning. However, ask Henshaw Inflatables for more information, if there's one place in the world where you can find an answer regarding RIB tubes, that's Henshaw.

303?

I assume you are looking for something beyond 303 (great stuff). Let us know what Henshaw says. What are you trying to remove? john

using the following "Revival" where upon you'll find a number of previous articles discussing the same. I for one find this product "Revival" very very good - expencive though 13.00 ltr.

I can't believe that any boat cleaner is worth 13 a litre! What is so special about Revival? What sort of cleaner is it?

This is a frequent topic (see this thread for a recent discussion), perhaps we ought to organise a side by side test sometime.

Nothing but the best for our Graeme. Tell him they sell it in Harrods with a 'By Appointment' crest and he'd pay 26 a litre for it.

Never one to quibble about.........

price, it's actually 13.50 a ltr. As for a side-b-side test, if anyone fancies joining me we could do a door step challange at my local marina where there are one or two rather dirty ribs (Jono Gorton's to name but one) !!! P.D - how well you know me

What a brilliant idea testing all the cleaners is.

I would be happy to provide dirty boats for the test if you like.
