The only way to clean white hoods, as with white bar tape, is to replace with a sensible colour, IMO. :)

Failing that, try soapy water made from a dribble of dishwashing liquid. Anything stronger is going to leave the hoods a gummy sticky mess, I reckon, and that goes double for eucalyptus oil. Incidentally, use a domestic kitchen sponge and soapy water on your bar tape too, you'll be amazed how they clean up.

I have always found Jif to be versatile when cleaning these items. YMMV.

Ms Lush would recommend white vinegar and bicarb soda- well she recommends it for EVERYTHING else.

If you amnage to clean them and remove the stickiness talcum powder can keep the re-stickiness at bay.

Methylated spirits should be safe to use on rubber.
