    How do you clean your white G's?

    My white GWM5600 started to get a little "dirty" or yellowish on the underside of the strap.

    I don't even wear it all the time.

    I tried to wash it with soap and soft brush but it did not clean everything. Didn't want to try harder brush to avoid possible scratches.

    Is there another method for cleaning bright coloured G's?

    I don't know, but I am also interested in the responses because my stormtrooper is getting a little discoloured

    According to most posters here, there isn't.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    My wife's white G is pretty dingy. I tried soap and water. No luck. Then a MrClean Magic Eraser, does nothing. I'm stumped. I know acetone with work, but my guess would be that it would melt the plastic, I'll have to test it on the underside of the strap and see.

    Perhaps cooking would help, but that would also soften the strap :(

    Oxi Clean Spray works very well. ( Walmart Kmart )

    OR -------

    If you are attempting to white areas only like the inside of the band this is the ticket.
    Do not use this on the silk screened / painted colored surfaces.

    3 Cups HOT water
    2 Teaspoons Chlorine Bleach (No more than 2 you'll eat a hole in it)
    1/2 Teaspoon Free and Clear washing detergent ( All, Fab, any brand )

    After you scrub with a soft toothbrush, rinse with clean water.
    You may want to wear rubber gloves to avoid your hands smelling like bleach.

    If you have a gloss finish you may end up with a slightly matt finish after you scrub with the bleach. Don't worry, forget about it, you can use Novus
    #2 polish (Walmart) and get the shine back to 100%.
    Do not use paste or cream auto polish as this will sometimes stain this type of plastic.

    Unfortunately I it's one of the downsides of owning a white G. I have washed my white glx-5600 after any use that involves sweat or water touching it but it's inevitably turning a little yellow around the bezel after about a year of use. I generally just wash it with warm water and liquid hand soap which has seemed to work very well. You're also going to have UV rays affecting it's color, which you can really do nothing about (unless you prefer to only wear it at night- it may prolong any yellowing). Although I love the look of the white on my wrist, I don't think I will get another white G in the near future.

    Damn... So white G's have much shorter "lifetime" than dark ones.

    Where can I order spare white strap and bezel for GWM5600?
    Nothing at tiktox.com, only for DW and GLX.
