Im sure you did it to some tyres you had?
Id probably use water as hot as you can get it and maybe washing powder?

black tyre paint or a black marker pen, bike tyres are quite thin so buffing isn't an option i would use

Dont clean your bike, a week or so of commuting around my end of the world coats everything in a fine layer of grey oily slime, nothing can be seen beneath that :lol:
