    Mudman beige turning into blue?

    My Mudman g9000-8vdr is changing from beige into blue already on several spots in just a couple of days.
    I'm new to mudmans and hadn't expected this!
    Is this a familiar problem and can I do something about it ( clean it with?) ?
    I havent used any paint or chemicals while wearing it (yet )

    You been wearing it with something blue, so it is rubbing?

    You should first try warm water and soap. I'm sure others will chime in with their ideas as well!

    Hi Sinner,

    I agree with Shadow. It is what you're wearing.

    Resin is very absorptive material especially to fumes! You will notice that after some years will turn beige-yellow no matter how much you wash it!

    Your current situation hasn't got to do with decay though..Maybe your sleeve is faded and some of the colour left on the watch..

    If you think that there is nothing you can do, you can try with the same way that it turned blue, to "dye" the rest parts of the watch to look similar.It could make a nice effect (i think). Its better to try WhtShadow's advice first with hot water and soap though...If there is nothing you can do to save the original colour, you can dye the bezel and the strap to another colour with RIT dye (tested). Preferably a darker colour...

    Some people recommend toothbrush and toothpaste to remove more stubborn stains, as it's a mild abrasive.
