Is your bar tape gross? Here's a tip for you: Simple Green. I know it's not really revolutionary, but maybe you don't know how well it works on bar tape of all levels of filth.
Here's my before picture. The Gios Torino has been outside on the covered porch all winter, and it had some weird kind of mold growing in spots, along with some regular old grime built up.
Spray on the Simple Green, scrub it with an old toothbrush and/or a washcloth, rinse and enjoy the succulent fruits of your labor.
Here we are halfway done. Shocking, yes?
It is very much like new.
Such a pretty girl. So hey, don't rush to rewrap your bars when you can clean 'em up so nice.
Wow am I good. I should probably start a series on startling revelations like these.
