My daughter wears an AFO (ankle foot orthotic) and her velcro straps holding the AFO are no longer white; but dirty. What's the best way to clean the velcro and a piece of cloth strap that is next to her leg? Any ideas?

Have you contacted the company that makes Velcro for ideas? One thought I had was to take a ribbon of the same width and glue it on to cover the surfaces that are dirty. Could add a decorative touch if that would be suitable.

How about taking a piece of strong tape and press into the velcro and then lift off the dirt!

This should work!

I just clean mine with Dawn Dish liquid and a scrubbing brush.

Try white vinegar mixed with some baking soda
little water to fizz the dirt off with clean rag scrub.
