Default How to clean pads (really dirty)

Hey guys, I'm new here in this forum and there are + - 1 year and a half ago I bought a drum from a friend (TD-5) with everything working to train rhythm ('m guitarist). Well, it's time to sell it and the pads have a persistent dirt hehe, I want to know what I need to do to remove it (seems mildew) and if not, is there any possibility to change skins? Below is the image of the pads and their situation.

Yikes what a sight!

They are of course made of rubber. I would go to the auto-supply store and buy some Westley's Bleche-White and clean them like you would clean a car tire. Do it outside though as the fumes are strong. Then finish by treating them with some 303 Aerospace Protectant. 5 Minutes and they will look like they are better than brand new.

Show us the after shots when you are done!

I use armorall cleaning wipes on mine. Note: the cleaner not the protectant.
