The white pedals on my Hercules look more brown than white. What’ll do the best at cleaning them? I already tried scrubbing them with Simple Green and got minimal results. Mineral Spirits? Alcohol?

I wouldn't be too optimistic about getting them white again. Try Comet and a stiff hand brush or a citric acid cleaner. Being dirty is one thing, being sun burned or saturated with oil/grease is another.

I believe that's spelled Bleche-Wite, you know, in good old American.


Made by Black Magic, it's a pretty old brand.

I tried Bleche-Wite on a set of white ladies 53 Monark pedals. It worked well and whited them up lots better than they were, but the rubber still has a faint brown tinge to it. I think it's just from age. Can't change old age....
