What to use to tidy up my rubrail!!??

Hi, the dark blue 60mm rub rail around my rib is looking a bit faded and stained over most of it's length- no damage though.
Is there any cleaning product that will bring it back to it's former glory??
Thanks

Acetone or MEK,, wet and wipe away quickly a small section at a time.

And absolutely don't let either solvent come in contact with the adhesive!! Strakes are a bugger to reglue. Personally, I have had great success using strong TRF and a green Scotchbrite pad. Avoid products containing silicone when finishing - Back to Black being an example.
