    Picture Help with cleaning a White DW-8400

    I have an incomming DW8400 Mudman Men in White and Grey...it's a bit dirty and yellowish in some areas. Is there a way to brighten up the white or get rid of the yellow? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    I've uploaded a couple of pics from the sale.

    Thanks

    Looks like the strap is newer than the bezel, or the strap was removed and stored.

    I haven't heard of a fool-proof way of cleaning the white. Usually, they end up getting used till they are too dingy looking, then dyed a color the user desires. If all else fails...you can always make them black.

    white is the worst color to maintain or repair.
    its either getting a new bezel and band or dun wear it that often.

    oh, and the white mudman is pretty !!!

    i was certain that a magic eraser would work (since it works on pretty much everything else, truly like magic), but that didn't even seem to work on the one white bezel i have. i may have to try again, though, as i didn't devote much time to the effort originally.

    my gf's BG1500 and my G5500 white rubber retainer went dirty and i used an eraser trying to rub off the dirt. didnt work.

    toothbrush and toothpaste didnt work either.
    havent tried bleach though but that would certainly harm the band and bezel.

    Toothbrush, warmwater, and dish soap. I've used the type with bleach alternative in it. BTW that is a sweet Mudman
