Posted 4 years ago Rusty SpannerSubscriber WD40. Although CIF is much cheaper. 😀 Posted 4 years ago gonzyMember or GT-85 Posted 4 years ago KINGTUTMember Another vote for Cif. Posted 4 years ago pebblebeachMember No amount of cleaning will stop white bar tape looking like gray bar tape after a few rides. Posted 4 years ago JaseMember Fantastic, my other half must have some Cif 🙂 Many thanks.

I have the Fizik stuff, looks as good as new… It’s a ‘leathery’ finish though. The suede-like ones go mucky quickly… Posted 4 years ago Rusty SpannerSubscriber Bontrager stuff comes up good as new as well. Still swapping for black next time though. Posted 4 years ago JaseMember Still swapping for black next time though. Me too Posted 4 years ago brakesMember when I was stupid enough to have white bar tape 🙂 and if I ever cleaned it, I used whatever kitchen/ bathroom cleaner was kicking around the house. the foamy ones worked best with minimal scrubbing. Posted 4 years ago NorthwindSubscriber Wee bit of isoprpyl alcohol will do it- not too much, don’t want it to soak in, just enough to dampen a cloth. WD40 or similiar will leave an oily residue. Posted 4 years ago marsdenmanMember Baby wipes. Minimal fuss for, so I read, maximum result. Posted 4 years ago JaseMember Anyone got any tips for cleaning bar tape? No matter how careful I was when cleaning my bike this morning I managed to get my oily hands on the white bar tape! Posted 4 years ago rootes1Member tour rider with new tape at each stage – white is (just) acceptable… normal rider without pro team mechanic – get some black tape.. Posted 4 years ago singlecrackMember Travis Perkins trade wipes 😉 Posted 4 years ago PhilbyMember Baby wipes or bicarbonate of soda. Posted 4 years ago souldrummerMember As others have mentioned, I use baby wipes. Posted 4 years ago timburMember Disc brake cleaner. Posted 4 years ago mrmoMember just use fizik white, stays white for months no issues Posted 4 years ago JaseMember Cif worked a treat Posted 4 years ago ir_banditoSubscriber Am I odd in that I like the look of grubby white bar-tape? Shows that the bike gets ridden. Posted 4 years ago pebblebeachMember Am I odd in that I like the look of grubby white bar-tape? Shows that the bike gets ridden.
