Black marks on iron face!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I have the Burner 1.0 irons and I clean them very thoroughly after each round. The other day I was cleaning them and I noticed that there is a small black mark on the face on my pitching wedge. Does anyone know how to get this off?

Elbow grease?

I can't think of any other way besides this and using a weak solvent, such as rubbing alcohol, grip solvent, or vinegar. If you mark your ball with a sharpie, you'll find that dots appear frequently on your clubfaces if you hit the ball with the dot facing the club.

Correct, but don't use vinegar though. It's probably stainless steel, but vinegar is an acid and the others aren't harmful to the metal. If alcohol, lighter fluid, or acetone don't work immediately with a bit of rubbing, leave it alone. It's probably just a bit of the paint from the ball or a bit of sharpie, and in that case it will come off the club very easily with a bit of solvent. And be careful not to get any on the ferrule, paint, or on a graphite shaft; it may attack plastic and dissolve paint and the protective finish on the shaft. Just a Q tip or a bit of paper towel should work.

Fair enough on the vinegar point. Was just trying to think of solvents and that popped into my mind. You could use Hydrochloric or Nitric Acid if you wanted, just don't be surprised if they started melting your clubface off.

I've always kept it simple when cleaning my clubs after a round. Three items. Windex, a soft bristle toothbrush, and a microfiber towel. Spray it, brush it, wipe it. Quick and my clubs look great. Of course I skip the brush it part on the metal woods crown.


I'm tapping, but it still ain't talking!
