Anyone know best way of removing dirt and grease from a grip? Without removing it ideally!

Put them through the wash. Does require removing though.
Without removing I would use a little dissolved washing powder, give it a rub down then use small amounts of clean water to wash  down, but such a hassle youre better off removing it, put through wash, dry then put back on.

Crap ones maybe. Find me a black spiral grip anywhere near that price.

Where?

I'd love to find a source of decent grips (preferable white chevrons, under no circumstances an octopus) for 2 a hit

Loads of places do decent grips for about 2 quid, bought lots in bulk for cheaper than this as well. Depends what youre after I suppose
