Baby wipes are perfect for cleaning. They will easily clean the white tape. They are also great for cleaning greasy hands.

FIZIK CLASSIC SUPERLIGHT . stay white easily. the tape has no damping so use some gel cushioning underneath common areas
My favorite bartape, even stays white on my winterbike :) 2mm for the lightest thinnest option of course.

+1 on Fizik

been using Fiziks's white tapes for 10+ years now, the big secret here is I wash it every time it gets dirty. I just use regular cleaning liquid and a sponge or a piece of thick rag. I can't recall using more than 2 tapes per year.. and this year I'm still rolling on a tape I put on ~15 monts ago...

I have the white Fizik Superlight Tacky and it feels great but is impossible to clean and gets dirty easier than most white tapes. I’ll try the Pro Smart Silicone next.

I’ve been riding white handlebar tapes since 1996. Currently using PRO sport control team.
