FAQ Friday #14 - Does RIBstore's own brand RIB tube cleaning product, ToobShine, actually work?

This is a really easy question to answer...Yes! 

We sell lots of our own brand tube cleaning product, which can be used on PVC, hypalon and PU RIB / SIB tubes. And we have lots of customers buying this product again too.

We recommend using ToobShine with a white 3M Scotch-Brite Type T Non-Abrasive Cleaning Pad.

I think the photos below also speak for themselves!

These before and after photos were sent to us by Ann, who couldn't have sung more highly  about the product's cleaning capabilities on a facebook sailing group.

Blue Hypalon RIB Tubes

Blue tubes are renown for looking faded. Thank you to Gary for these before and after photos.

David was delighted that his HonWave dinghy looked like new after being cleaned with ToobShine and kindly sent us this photo.

These are some test patches that I did on my own Red Paddle Co Ride 10'8 paddle board. I couldn't believe how dirty the blue was!
