Cleaning whitewalls is a PITA. I was cleaning mine in my daughters driveway last week and she gave me something to try. It was called Mr Clean Magic Eraser. This all-white pad cleaned up the whitewalls quickly and rinsed off easily. AND Diamondback does NOT recommend Bleche-white so this is even better.

Good find Randy. I get tired of cleaning white walls. Here is an old Mr Clean Jingle where the mention white walls! Is this new stuff expensive?

I doubt if it's expensive but then I got mine for free.

Great idea, Randy.

Anything to make WWW cleaning easier is a plus in my book.
I have "ancient" whitewall tires that still have good miles on them, but cleaning the 'checkers' is not the easiest.

I will try Mr C, and let you know.

PS: (Note my second saying below:
"Progress is made by lazy men looking for an easier way to do things.")
Mr C seems to have all the signs of progress

OK, now I need a little help. I have looked everywhere (stores, internet, etc.) for a spoke brush that will fit the SMALL space between the spokes where I cannot even get my pinky finger. I have yet to find a brush small enough. Does anyone know of such a tool??

Not sure how long you need it to be but might find something in laboratory equipment suppliers.http://www.amazon.com/SMALL-TEST-TUBE-BRUSH-8/dp/B001DBJL3W

That's aaawweeesome.
Just gave the car a spring wash and partial claybar and wax, but neglected the white walls...This is the answer I have been looking for. I don't think the magic bars are too expensive, 2-4$. Also good around the kitchen.

Both good ideas. The laboratory brushes have wire handles which may scratch the chrome, but I'll check it out.
Thanks.

Good point about the scratching but I don't know with the way brushes are made anything small which won't have a wire core. Anything else would have a solid back like a toothbrush and maybe not fit. See a few brushes listed as spoke brushes which have a taper and wood or plastic handle but still a wire core. Harbor Freight has a cheap nylon bristle brush assortment of varying small sizes but still a core. Might be able to flatten the eyelet temporarily and put a plastic such as heat shrink over the wire and then re expand the eyelet.
