Do the white virtue spires stain?

Hey i was wondering if the white shells of the Virtue Spires stain. I know i have seen a couple stained ones but i was just wondering if this happened to most white spires. Thanks

Do they stain because people leave paint in them? Or will they stain if you get shot in the hopper? And is there any way that you can get the stains out?

Bleach? I'm pretty sure they only stain if you leave paint on them.

Wipe them off between games and wash with water after the day of play. No issues with mine.

^^ This.

I carry a micro fiber in my pocket and wipe my mask and hopper after each game. At the end of the day, a wet rag wipe down and dry it off. This is the same process with dyed Spires. If you let paint sit on the plastic for long periods, it will stain.

For stains, you can try alcohol on a rag or maybe the Rit dye remover would work. I haven't tried it yet, but some of dye remover on a rag might help.

I actually have a buddy who got a stain off of his white spite by putting the shell in the dishwasher with bleach. I wouldn't recommend it for a second, but it did work lol.

It will if you don't clean it off every day. I would wipe off between games, too.

If you are shooting really potent paint or you keep the paint on the shell for an extended period of time you could possibly see some staining as the paint could possibly sublimate into the shell. If you take a hopper hit you should obviously wipe it off and keep your loader as clean as possible.

At the end of the day clean your loader with either denatured alcohol, bleach or Lemon Juice to keep it nice and crisp.

I had a pretty badly stained white Spire which I picked up used. I did this.
