The Jub is looking a little faded, what's the easiest and safest stuff to use on it?
I've used mild dish soap and a soft toothbrush in the past. No matter what method you use, test it in an inconspicous area first.
A couple things that work:
After cleaning - vaseline (recommended by an amp tech/restoration pro).
Also I really like Formula 303 Aerospace Protectant. It gives a great natural shine; not that overly slick "Armour All" gloss. It contains no petroleum products so it won't degrade the tolex over time. Majorly good sunscreen, too. I use it on my dashboards, my amps, and anything else I want to keep looking great.
You can get it at some auto parts or boating supply stores. Or order directly from the company www.303products.com .
DO NOT! use vasoline or any other petroleum based product on tolex - That's a sure way to destroy or damage it.
That sounds logical since I just discouraged the use of petrol based products right afterward(in my previous post). Suppose I had a brain fart when I was posting at 4am. But a well regarded amp guy did actually tell me to use it. I used vaseline once and it worked well. Only problem was,...it was vaseline! I just didn't like the thought.
Only used the 303, since.
