When to replace your shammy?
« on: November 01, 2023, 08:41:31 AM »
I have been using the same shammy for long enough that I don't remember when I started using it.  How long do you use your shammy before replacing it?

I've tried cleaning them with mixed results. The last one I cleaned aftewr a whole season, probably over 250 games including tournaments, it just wasn't the same so I bought a new one.

I like the shammys but they are over priced, like most things nowadays. I need to win more jackpots I suppose :)

I've cleaned them with dish soap and water with a nylon brush and hang dry with good results. At first they seem a little stiff, but within a game or two they loosen up and back to normal.

When they come out with a cool new color.
