How to locate leak in very large inflatable matress?

Have a two elephant size Aerobed with a slow leak.
Impractical to immerse in the Atlantic and see where the bubbles are coming from. I Have tried LPG and gas detector trick but no joy as the detector is not sensitive enough.
Any thoughts?

Sponge the matress over with a washing up and water solution like children's bubble mixture when the matress is inflated, you will have to be very vigilent to look for small bubbles.

Good luck

Infalte as best you can and then try to listen for leak. If u cant then try spraying soapy water over it and look for the bubbles.
