    Re: How do I clean my White G-SHOCK?

    Oh no, if Mr. Clean Magic Eraser don't work, then the stain must have seeped through the resin layers and will be near impossible to come off. I have a few yellow straps like that and also always stains at the edges and the strap holder.

    To-date, nothing works and I have to live with it so I hope that someone has a solution because I also like white and yellow watches too

    Re: How do I clean my White G-SHOCK?

    what i use to clean mine is toothpaste and a toothbrush
    and after you have finished with the toothpaste put some shampoo on the brush and go over the watch again
    hope this helps

    I definitely know what will work for you. It's called Goof off. Hope you've read about it in the stealthing posts. Remove the bezel first, and don't get it on the lettering.

    Re: How do I clean my White G-SHOCK?

    Hmm i live in berlin/germany and have no idea about goof off it isnt a common product in here...

    So I have to say my white g shock is still dirty do any of you have the same problem? i think it isnt normal cause NOW the edges around a even more dark/dirty...

    tried it everyday with a brush and toothpaste and shampoo like some of you said but didnt helped...

    im so confused and when i see the white watches in the forum its all perfect white without dirt... why do only i have this problem?

    and i still think that this is all cause of my jacket because from anywhere the dirt must came......

    .........

    hope anywho can help me!

    greets!

    Re: How do I clean my White G-SHOCK?

    The white ones that others have, probably are never worn. "Goof off" is solvent used to remove adhesives, paint, etc. Here's the site about it: http://www.valsparglobal.com/val/resident/goof-off.jsp

    It's just a mixture of xylene and ethylbenzene, with a little diethylene glycol, and some toluene.

    So...try some paint thinner (but remove the bands from the bezel first).
