The feel however, is top notch! Wondering if there is any club maker who can strip the finish and do it up again in a simple matt black finish.

Advisable to use those white sponge cubes from Daiso? Those made in japan ones where you put a bit of water and rub... seems to remove stains and grit very effectively.

I think those are used to clean the club to make it looks like new more than to clean the clubs properly. Just my 3 cents worth of opinion. Very Happy

it's very effective for cleaning the white Taylormade heads, although i've heard using it too often will erode the paint. used it on mine once after every detergent, soap and cleaning agent in my house failed to remove the black stains on my driver, and it looks good as new after cleaning

Those are good for cleaning off the sticky residue when you pull out the shaft labels too!

[IGT] You did the right thing.


but i have this feeling that it might be the reason why the "goldish" finish on the putter seems to be disappearing or wearing off.. anyone has this experience as well?
[IGT] Do a search on internet, you will get similar quries and feedback. Some Scotty lines discolor; think California and Circa 62 are some of them. It should not affect playability but definitely look sucks....like hyena.

Hi guys I have been cleaning my club heads and shafts as often as possible...

But I was wondering something after I got a new pair of gloves, is there a way to clean your grips? I was watching Luke Donald's instructional videos from Mizuno and his gloves are very nice and white. My new gloves turned grey at the palm and finger area where it meets the grip after one session at the range!

Does anyone clean their grips? Question

I use a scrub sponge.

Will scrub once over with slighty soapy water. Then a second time with clean water to get rid of soap residue. Towel down and air dry after.

Side note is that you do not want to get your grips too wet, so try to squeeze out as much from your sponge as you can before use.

I find my gloves still gets blackish, but feel that this at least keeps the grips tacky. This is basically just to remove grime from the surface.

Same here. The honey dip finish doesn't last. I've only had it for a year plus! Can see some unsightly scratches on the flange area as well...distracting when lining up for the putt...

The feel however, is top notch! Wondering if there is any club maker who can strip the finish and do it up again in a simple matt black finish.

i also have the same problem here. my putter is oil can finish and it start to rust now. i also wanna do refinish to a different colour. any recommendation?

Hi guys, I was at Creative Golf and I found a grip cleaner in case if anyone is interested...





Translation for use is to shake well, spray and wipe off with cloth. Just gave it a try and my cloth looks really dirty so guess it works!

Feel of the grip after drying feels good as new so feeling quite pleased Smile

alternatively...some good scrubbing with a brush and washing powder with warm water also does the trick for me.

I thought using washing powder on your grips is a really bad idea?

I read somewhere that for cleaning grips, a good wipe-down with a damp cloth would suffice. I've been doing that and felt no degradation on the tackiness of my grips

I used to replace golf grip every year, thinking rubber get degenerated faster in hot humid weather like Singapore. (this is partly true with WINN soft grips) now I mostly used GP grips.

Last few years I have not replaced any, but regularly cleaned my grips with mild house hold detergents with soft brush and it seem to be working very nicely.

I use a damp cloth with water mixed with a little hand soap. Just wipe the grips down and air dry in room > 24 hours. For full cord grips, I use brush to scrub on the grips for more effective cleaning. Nice, clean with tacky feel.

Actually IDK abt grips. but u ppl can consider using a 50/50 ratio of this multipurpose cleaner called Simple Green and Isopropanol. Works very well for tough stains and dried mud etc.
