I have a set that I just cleaned up, they were pretty grungy. I started off with a fully charged 'scumbuster' with a green scrub pad on it, hot water and dish soap, and finished with a magic eraser. They cleaned up pretty well.


Any day that starts with a good ride is already a better day, and a bad day riding still beats a good day working.

Anybody tried equal parts vinegar & dawn dish soap? It works great for renewing wiper blades after they get really filthy. I put it on a rag and scrub them back and forth a few times. You could rinse it off after, but I usually just run my washers. I know some cleaners containing oils can actually harm rubber. And I have white tires, but I haven't yet tried the vinegar/dawn on them yet.

I have a little one, so we have lots of baby wipes kicking around. I've been using them for touch ups, but I really need to knuckle down and scrub mine.
