Mouthpiece Cleaning

I really try to keep my mouthpiece away from any cleaning products of any kind and just stick to cold water since it's hard rubber, but I've got some stubborn spit marks that i need to get rid of and my cleaner isn't working. Any suggestions?

      Well if it were legal for me to enter any tobacco store I would certainly take advantage! Do gas stations (and the like) also sell the product?

        Surely you have someone whom can go in for you,or even ebay,it's called stem polish-ebay 220354481791 as an example or type it into Google.I use Savinelli which is a good brand,it should cost you around $5.00.by the way,I am in the UK so do not know about your laws,it should not be too difficult for you to purchase :)
