Cleaning RIB

Thoughts please on best way to clean a filthy (basic mud/dirt) RIB without harming glues and material?

Re: Cleaning RIB

Roll-Off with a white scotchbrite pad and lots of water.
Once clean, Aerospace 303 UV protectant.
The trick to the 303 is to completely wipe it until dry with clean soft rags. If not, it looks streaky.

Re: Cleaning RIB

Solution of bleach, spray on and leave for about ten minutes.
303 for protection.

Re: Cleaning RIB

I believe chlorine bleach is bad for the glue used in PVC inflatables. Check with your manufacturer. Aerospace 303 protectant is good.
