I tried Bilgex to start with, it's expensive and you need a lot of it. I then got some very cheap Asda washing powder (a couple of pounds for a big box) and mixed some with warm water. I left this in the bilge for a week and then pumped out. Worked a treat. Just watch where you dispose of it if you have oil in the bilges.
