Hi guys

I have heard of baby oil after using soap water to clean and brush clubs off grime and dirt.

Anyone tried WD-40? Spray and wipe?

I use it all the time, especially since my irons are raw.... Baby oil works well too to prevent rust and much cheaper and also smell better :-)

I use Silicone Spray Lub and baby oil to clean and maintain my clubs.

Uses Silicone Spray Lub as it prevent rust and also clean up rust as well; the smell is not as bad as WD 40 and it is a dust-free lub.

For baby oil, it is cheap and good for quick clean-up after range.

Bros - will the baby oil and wd40 left on the cleaned clubs affect play in anyway if left on ..? esp greasy film layer on clubface, if say using oil
so far i only wash/brush off dirt with mild detergent n rinse off w water and fan dry immediately....

i don think hot water is a good idea, it may soften or melt the epoxy, i saw the club fitters using a hot gun just to melt the epoxy on graphite shaft and just pull out the head.

Warm water may be a better idea, if 90" or 100", it might damage the epoxy after awhile.

Not sure if this is true, need club fitters to confirm.
