Handlebar tape wears out every 8 – 12 months.  Besides the fact that it can get really dirty, there’s no reason to replace it any sooner.  If you want to look Euro, white handlebar tape will definitely be your flavor of choice. No to mention white shoes, white knicks, white leg warmers, etc.

To keep it perfectly clean, supermarkets sell Woolmix brand product with a eucalyptus base ( Green bottle ) which is for delicate fabrics. Drop some into a small dish add a squirt of water . Take a nail brush dip it into the fluid and scrub away. Dry off with a clean towel …all done…pearly white again!  For the stubborn stuff do the same with concentrated Preen solution first then the Woolmix.
