ASK THE MXPERTS: GETTING RID OF BLACK SCUFF MARKS
The best thing about Mr. Clean is that your mom (or mom-wife) has it under the kitchen sink.
I’m getting black scuffs marks on my new graphics that look like they’re coming from my boots. How do I get those scuffs out?
You are right. They are coming from the sole or heat shield of your boots. You can normally clean the black scuff marks off with contact cleaner and a clean rag, but you need to do it as soon as possible, as the rubber hardens with age. Lots of riders swear by Mr. Clean’s Magic Eraser, but that’s because they got it for free from under the kitchen sink.
