I would recommend "Silky" or "The Pink Stuff". I think Fenwicks also do a
very good cleaner. You should be able to get something suitable at any
caravan dealers. Do not use household wash up liquid as it contains salt.

But *don't* use a power washer too close to window or door seals - or you
will wash out the sealant and cause leaks.

So a power washer is okay to use on the main alu panels, thanks for the help

Yes, but stand well back when using it on anything delicate. [For example,
when washing a car, you mustn't hold the nozzle too close to the tyres].
