I thought rust is good? Gives more bites (not for drivers and woods though)...

I've always wondered about the rust issue. I didn't know that it helped give bite but I can see that being the case.

For the grips I use shampoo... takes out the grease, no oily residue...

I cant comment about the Rust cos I have never let my irons or my wedgesget to that state. I would guess they are meant to bit more if a bit rusty...

What shampoo? dry or oily scalp? regular or anti-dandruff? Shocked

I used to use Murphys oil soap on my tour velvets; leaves it a slight tacky feeling. Not sure if it's actually good or harmful for the grips, but feels nice to me.

Had a couple of rusty wedges before, my cobra phil rogers wedge and a cleveland rtg that would rust like crazy; I do think they spun the ball a bit more... but usually only when I'm short of the hole!! Sad

Shampoo? I just use a damp towel and some soap.

I wouldn't use something too caustic either. Soap and water will suffice.
