How to Clean Bicycle Bar Tape Make It Simple

White’s bar Tape and It looks fantastic when you first put it on and of course, pros use it when they’ve got their personal mechanics to rewrap it or clean it after every use, inevitably though, are to get a puncture out on a ride.

Sponge and Soapy Warm Water

So what is the best way to get this looking like new again? But a quick search on the internet, reveals a few different methods that people out their use.

We’re going to try three of the common ones today. First of all, we’re going to use a bucket of hot, soapy water and a sponge.

Then we’re going to use some two-state whitening toothpaste with a toothbrush.

Finally, we’re going to use some nanotech products from our partners at Mac off along with their sponges.

Well, we’re going to see how this looks at the end of it and before we the easiest thing to do is put black bar tape on but I prefer this, and let’s face it. The black box is still dirty and grimy.

I’m going to tend to clean these drop parts of the handlebars. We have my soapy water and sponge. Now, these aren’t quite as grimy as the top part here because I do spend.

The majority of my time, riding on the hoods, just going to grab my sponge and go around the bar, turning it in the direction that the bar tapers on.

However, this is also important to know how to clean a bike chain properly.

Otherwise, you risk losing it slightly rubbing a little bit of a couple of marks I’ve got on there.

Use Toothpaste

Method number two, you may never have been tried before use toothpaste and a toothbrush going to wet the bar tape slightly firs and we’ve got the hoods up. You can see just how white it was. When it was new, it should be enough.

I’ll give it up brown hair and that’s really grinding and I’m just going to give this a rinse off my soapy water. I’ve been at its face now and again, but like soapy water.

Well, I think it’s safe to say that both sides are far better than the work when we start this article and also that this side is slightly close to the way it looked like when it was new than the right side there.

One thing that is worth pointing out though, is that if you do own a piece of news, the white bar says the best thing to do is to clean it very regularly.

Indeed. And that’s something which I haven’t done deliberately for this article and I haven’t cleaned this tape for over four weeks.
