Question Grungy City Water Connection Covers

My TT is 2 years old & I've hardly touched the white rubber plug that covers the city water connection & it looks horrible. Yesterday when waiting to go thru US customs, there was a fairly new looking TT lined up beside us. His plug was horrible looking as well.

Can this mat'l be cleaned (If yes, what do you use?) or do you just replace it?

I have used that gel bleach cleaner a few times but now when it gets real dirty I just replace it.

Black streak cleaner and an old tooth brush worked for mine.

I used "Goof Off, The Ultimate Remover" yesterday. Works great, the crud wipes right off. Works good on propane tank covers too. However the can says "DANGER!: FLAMMABLE LIQUID AND VAPOR. EYE IRRATION, HARMFULL OR FATAL IF SWALLOWED. I wore rubber gloves and washed the caps very well with soap and water after using the Goof Off. But it does work!

Ahhh, great tip! Thanks! I've been looking for something to do just what you describe.
