Any advice on getting white brake hoods clean.

Replaced the hoods on my chorus levers for white, and although they look good, beginning to get a bit filthy.

Used soap and water etc. Anyone use any particular product/solution?

I use Fenwicks Fs-1 bike cleaner diluted to about 15%. Excellent for hoods, bar tape etc.

Pledge works pretty well - for bar tape too.

I use blue Dawn for my white grip tape and it makes it look like new.
