    Question Cleaning G-Shock bezel

    I have gotten somthing on the bezel of my Mudman and am have some trouble getting off. Is there anything that works to clean off the bezels, I've tried plain soap, helped a little but not completely. Don't work at it too hard some of the cleaning needs to be done around lettering and I don't want to stealth the watch.

    Can't believe no one has a suggestion. The watch is a 25th Anniversay Mudman

    That's a bummer. I think you would have a hard time brushing off the lettering, as those that actually want to remove lettering have to work hard to do so (scraping, etc). What are you using to clean it with besides soap? Just your hands, or are you using a brush, etc. I use an old toothbrush, and stuf comes off nicely. I tend to use either antibacterial handsoap, or a mild hand/dish soap.

    Can you post a good pic of your bezel? That might help too .

    If it's something sticky, try eucalyptus oil. That's the best thing I've found for taking off those spots that low-quality price tags and stickers leave behind. Just test it on the lettering first to make sure it doesn't affect it.

    I'd probably use Simple Green and a soft bristle toothbrush. It's an excellent bio-degradable detergent for general cleaning projects.

    Cleaning a G-Shock?!?!


    Why don't you just draw it a nice bath with candles and pour it some green tea and see if that takes it off?

    Last time I tried to clean my G, it called me a sissy and gave me a smackdown. They like it dirty!

    I'm kidding, of course. I have no helpful suggestions at all. Sorry. I just rinse mine off with fresh water and dry it with a paper towel.

    Yes, eucalyptus oil is good at getting off gloopy stuff...

    ...your watch will also then help clear your sinuses.

    Can't post a picture, don't have a proper camera just a cell phone camera. I like the idea of Simple Green so I'll give it a try and post the results. Thanks everyone for the help.

    Try a product called "Goo Gone" ("Removes stickers, grease, gum, tar, crayon, tape"). It's an orange based cleaner, smells great & removes anything sticky. Great to use when you take price tags off items & leave a sticky residue behind. Put it on, let it sit for a bit & then rub/brush it off. I have used it to get rid of (more like cover up) "smokers strap" (that annoying oder that smokers leave on their watches). Pretty versatile stuff & I always have a bottle around.

    toothpaste and toothbrush should do the trick.
