    Are you talking about wrist-cheese? If you can get enough it's nice on a cracker

    I clean my G's with a soft tooth brush and lukewarm soapy water then a cold water rinse under the tap. Then a blow dry and polish with Mr Sheen furniture polish. Just don't brush paint filled text or printed stuff on straps etc it might wear out....

    I use a non-alcohol based wet wipe. That or a wet washcloth. The stuff comes right off if the water is hot.

    will hot water damage the bezel and strap

    i am not going to try it with boiling hot water of course :-D

    and the bezel and strap are off the watch, so no worries on damaging the seals

    A mild soap in lukewarm water will do great, like carrot wrote. The white depossit is the result of old skin cells and soap. In fact it's best to remove with a mild phosphoric acid sollution, but I don't know how the metal parts of the watchband reacts on that, so I recommend to stick on mild dish washing soap.

    Cheers,

    An old toothbrush and warm water for me as well, seems to work a treat.
