Best Ball Cleaner?
« on: February 04, 2014, 12:46:17 PM »
Does anyone have any recommendations as to the best ball cleaner? Looking for something to wipe my equipment down with after league to help preserve the life of the ball. Ideally, I would like something that is good on all brands of equipment.

All advice is appreciated!

I use Clorox bleach... Sometimes mixed with Simple 409 Fantastic... Sometimes just straight... Do it in a closed tight unventilated room... Don't wear gloves either.  Smells not bad yet cleans deep down.  People some times ask me why my nose is curled up & 1 eye is shut... But I just tell them I'm super focused. 

Thanks for reading... Hope this works for your ball.

Bleach AND ammonia, that's my fav! The ammonia balances out the harshness of the bleach.  :o :o :o ;D ;D

I prefer lighter fluid and a Brillo pad .....

I've been using Tac Up lately. I don't know if it's the best out there but it does get the ball clean.
