Cleaning oil off a ball
« on: November 17, 2020, 09:54:12 AM »
So, those of you who put your ball in an oil extractor, when the ball comes out with oil on it what do you use to clean that oil off ? Or do you just use a paper towel or rag ?

Paper towel, rag or whatever useful at the time. Usually its something I plan on throwing away!

I spray some ball cleaner on a paper towel and keep using that until it gets too oily, then replace it with a new one.

Hi All - I just received my "NewBall" rejuvenator.  A couple of questions.  (1) Do you have one and do you like it? (2) When i worked in a ProShop the JayHawk Rejuvenator would be set at 115* for an hour.  NuBall suggests 135* for an hour.  Any thoughts?  (3)  Any recommendations?  Thank you - Coach Denny

I have a Nuball Oven. I do like the Nuball Oven. I set mine to the 135. I check it every 1/2 hour to an hour to wipe off the oil and then put it back in. I know some bowling ball companies void their warranties if you go to high in temperature.

I set my NuBall unit at 125 degrees which is Motiv's warranty limit and keep the ball in for 90 minutes. I have not seen any damage to the inserts at that length of time. I have had my Rejuvenator for about 6 years and like it a lot.
