Best way to clean up golf grips?

post #1 of 12

What is the best and most efficient way to clean up golf grips? I have golf pride tour velvets and they are starting to feel slippery with less control. I regripped them last winter and will probably regrip them again during the offseason.

Soap and warm water. Lots of suds. Rub the suds into the grips and rinse. Use a soft towel to dry. Condensed version, but that's basically it.

This is entirely my opinion. Others may have a way they like to clean their grips that is good for them. This is just how I have always done it.

This is what I do except I get the warm soapy water on an old toothbrush and scrub the grip with that. Then I just take the towel and dry.

Yup....it leaves some of the soap on there that brings out the tackiness of this wonderful grip.

Tour Velvets are super...but they have to be replaced periodically....at least every season....imho.


If you want a little more life (and $$$$) then go with the Tour Velvet Cords....an outstanding grip that will last you through a couple of seasons. Super grip in damp weather.

Which cord grips are the best? I know Golfsmith sells quite a few of those grips. Which one is the most durable in all conditions and has a solid lifespan?

Soap and water - scrub with a medium hard nylon brush (something like a dish brush works fine in a pinch.)

Re: Best way to clean up golf grips?

This may be a dumb question but what are suds? Are they the bubbles that the soap makes?

Yes. Soap suds. Maybe it's a regional term, it's what we always called themin the midwest. Or at least my part of it!

"Golfer's Lift Off" does a great job on the rubber grips, not cord or Winn. Spray on grip, let it sit for a couple of seconds and twist dry with a towel.
An outfit in Illinois, Charter Products distributes it. Call them for someone near you who may sell it - about $7 for an 18 ounc can. 630-616-1922.

Be sure to wash and dry your club upside down, so the water doesn't go down into that little hole at the bottom of your club...
