Re: Cleaning clubsThere's a new machine at the range - you put you club heads (and/or grips) into a pool of water and the machine sends electromagnetic waves through the water which vibrate the molecules attached to your club (dirt) and hey presto they are clean :)
Though there isn't a better feeling than spending half an hour with a basin of soapy water and a scubbing brush on your clubs
Only advice I can think of is make sure you dry them thoroughly - that's where rust can set in. Especially if you have a cavity or something where water/dirt can hide. Oh and take a scrubbing brush out at the grips - scrub really hard (and get the soap out if you use some) - you'd be surprised how much dirt gets in there (sweat, acid rain etc )
Re: Cleaning clubsIf you wipe them down after each shot, they don't get all that dirty to begin with. I also use a brass brush on the face, as it gets the grooves nice and clean. No worries about damaging the club, as brass is much softer than chrome plated steel. Periodically, I fill the kitchen sink with warm, soapy water and give the sticks a good bath, drying completely.
Re: Cleaning clubs
Key is not to dunk the head of a cavity backed club into water. Get the toothbrush wet and scrub the head. Wipe with a damp towel. Wipe dry completely.
Re: Cleaning clubsI always wipe my clubs off after each shot or session on the range, but once every two to three weeks I wash them in warm soapy water. One thing I always make sure to do is cover the hole at the bottom of the grip to prevent water from getting inside the shaft. I usually just cover the hole with my finger as I run water over the grips to rinse them off.
Re: Cleaning clubsbrilliant LOL! have some rep points.
Those steel brushes are a marvel - the get at the grooves easily. They do more than an old toothbrush. Great to have attached to the bag. I used to use steel wool on my old irons (and wedges - to remove some of the rust) but I wouldn't use it now - it ruins the dull finish my irons have.
I clean my irons as best I can after every shot but they still need cleaning at home - especially the cavities and grips. Can't wait till clean them haha
Re: Cleaning clubs
Now to my next question. Is there anything special you can do with forged clubs. I got a deal on my used of Mizunos, which are forged. Anything special I need to do?
I know this is old but had a question for you all regarding the cleaning of your irons.
When i clean my irons they never seem to be as nice as when a person at the course cleans them. Is there anything special they use that anyone knows of?
The last time I had a course guy clean my clubs they returned them spot less and all I saw him using was a white towel.
