Hey, anyone know how to get rid of black scuffs on white mx boots?

I have the white Fox Forma Pro's and I'm cleaning them, but can't get these blackish scuffs off them. I don't know when they happened, but I think the scuffs came off my bike.

Please help!
Thanks -Dawn

I originally got black ones, but they looked waaayyy too manly. :thumbsup: I like the white ones, and don't mind the up-keep on them. :bonk: (... and for the record, they're not pure white, they're mostly gray)

I already got all the marks out, and they look good as new now. :thumbsup:

How about a pic of you modeling the boots, just so we can see how clean they are of course :thumbsup:

That's pretty forward to say about someone you DON'T know anything about! :bonk: May I suggest, keep your opinions to your self. :thumbsup:

I was looking for advice and tips, NOT opinions about me! 'Not to be rude', but get a clue. :confused:

First I sprayed the extra dirt off them as much as possible (like usual), then I used soapy water (Dawn dishwasing liquid - no relation) and a sponge to get the rest of the dirt off, and used scotch bright pads to get the black scuffs off. Scotch bright pads worked soooooo well! I dried them off and sprayed them down with a protectant and rubbed it in.

That was all there was to it!

Dawn :thumbsup:
