Evo is a house bunny, and litter trained, and he has perfect white feet anyway. Maybe you'll find that your bun's feet are cleaner when they're litter trained?
Is that EVO in your .gif?

I know that they're eventually going to be cleaner when they're litter trained~
But i just thought that someone's gotta wash their feet like at least once before they get used to the litter.
(I'm under the assumption that the yellow stains are their urine/poo stains)
I also need more info on litter-training them~
Some says keep shoving their poo inside
Others say you wait and see where they poo mostly in and shift the litter there. I also heard that you must lure them with 'hay' to be placed near the litter~
I'm not convinced they are urine stains (but I'm not an expert). My black bunnies have grey fur on their feet and the two bunnies I've had with white feet have creamy yellow fur on the underside of their feet. The front paws are the same colour as the back feet and the litter trays have absorbent material in so I'm not sure how the front paws would get stained.
I've always found my bunnies even from about 8 weeks are excellent at weeing in the tray, pooping is more of an issue but they have all got the idea fairly quickly. .. using the methods you've already listed - moving the poo to the tray, putting the tray in the corner they've chosen etc.
I've just looked at your last thread, and then looked at all my bunnies feet. All 4 of them have discoloured fur on the bottoms of their feet, it's caused by them running about. IT'S NOT URINE. It's normal and won't come off.
If its urine it would smell, but I really think it's just probably because the fur is thicker on the soles of their feet. Even my black bun has yellowish grey fur on the undersides of her paws. Its the natural colouring, just as the soles of your feet would discolour as your skin hardened if you were to walk barefoot all the time.
The video shows one way to bath a bunny, but it can be stressful, and I wouldn't do it unless your rabbit is definitely dirty and you can detect a smell on them.

Rabbit hate baths! There are lots of other options you could use...
1) Brush the yellow parts with a flea comb or a brush with soft bristles untill it starts to fade.
2) If any parts of the fur are clumped together with dirt, cut or clip the fur (Unless of course it can be brushed out easily).
3) Buy some special grooming wipes.
4) CLEAN THE HUTCH MORE! The yellow is either coming from wee the rabbit is walking in or sometimes even the yellowish dye in wood chipings!
5) Wipe all yellow parts with a damp face cloth.

My Lola has dirty feet. Its because she runs around the garden - and sometimes sits in her litter tray because she CAN!!! Despite having a lovely bed with hay!
I think its just a bunny thing to have dirty paws!
even when you try all the ideas i gave before, it's impossible to make them COMPLETELY white. At most rabbit shows, slightly yellow/cream feet don't even matter.
