Is your Grip turning white?

I've been using the GR for more than a year now and now my Grip is changing from black to white.

There are quite a lot of white stains over the grip and it looks pretty ugly. I tried to remove them with a wet and soft cloth. It works first but as soon as the grip drys the white stains appear again.

Does anyone of you have the same problem? And if so how did you fix it? I've been thinking of getting the half case just to cover it up but I'm using the Clearviewer which mounts to the tripod thread, so that's a no go.

Thank you for any help!

You might try glycerine.

Light scrubbing with Armor-All on a toothbrush will fix it right up and protect it from happening in the future.
