Just picked up a year old pair of used TCX PRO 2.1 boots.. Got em cheap so I can't complain. Only thing I'm wondering about is how i can clean them up? Already scrubbed and scrubbed with dish soap and it didn't work. Magic eraser? Bleach? Anyone got any advice? Thanks. Photo

Soft scrub, and a scrub brush for plastic parts, simple green and a scrub brush for the leather. On really stubborn plastic stains you can use a scotchbrite with the soft scrub.

No matter what you do, with boots are a losing battle. You can keep them looking pretty good but when you get a new pair you’ll be shocked how bright they look compared to your old ones.

Thanks for the advice. It's my first pair of white boots and I can definitely tell it'll be a losing battle, but for so cheap, theyre worth it. Ill give those suggestions a try.

Totally Awesome to clean the Napa Alumibrite to bring back the white. Spray on let sit for 20 seconds or so and pressure wash off.....Works for white bike plastics also. Not perfect but best I've found........

Yep, losing battle... I've tried everything and they will yellow eventually. I guess you can slow the process with strict cleaning.
I don't always clean mine thoroughly, just spray them with the washer or hose, and they've yellowed pretty bad.
No more white boots for me..lol

They will only really go yellow if you clean them using anything with bleach in or leave them in direct sunlight. We've got a pair of white boots here that are very well used and about six years old. They've only been cleaned every two or three rides using JIF and a nail scrubbing brush, plus they're stored in a kit bag. The stitching is coming apart and half the buckles are nearly torn off but they're still white.

Simple green and a plastic brush. Let the simple green soak on the boots for a minute or two.
