Lol at the concern for an implement we smash plastic rocks with.

I use water, a bristle brush, and a rag.  As I go generally, and after a practice session.  That's it.

Sometimes spit.

I'm glad this thread was revived. I never start a round without a wet towel. Wipe the irons after every shot.

Since others seem to be as particular about their clubs, I will now admit to using neoprene covers for my irons. I hate the little ding marks on the pretty side of irons. Forged clubs are really soft and the new look just makes me feel better.

People that don't know you seem to smirk when they look in your bag. I used to be that person. Too old to care now.

I wipe my grips with a little warm soapy water everyone now and then. But ive never scrubbed the club heads on any set of irons ive ever owned. Seems kinda redundant to me. Just the damp towel i use between shots. No problems with rust or anything except wear spots on the faces on my short irons and wedges.

warm water and stiff brush on the grips - really nice, makes em tacky again - air dry

club faces - ditto, just get them clean

I don't mind a chip or ding on my hybrids or woods (unusual as I'm normally picky).  UNLESS I can see it at address.  (It felt weird to go into the dollar store to buy black nail polish - worked like a charm, I can't see that ding on my 5h at address now.)

Bar keepers friend is a good product as well. A little bit helps to get stuck on dirt off and can really clean the grips.

I mix Simple Green with water, (50 / 50), and apply it with a spray bottle. Then I use a soft brush and rag to clean all my clubs. Have been doing it for years and they all look brand new, (except for the normal wear). I do not use the brush on the top part of my woods, just the bottoms.

I use a bucket of water.  4 irons go in the bucket and soak while I brush the face and bottom of the first club. I use a plastic bristle brush I picked up at the hardware store.  I am sure a simple tooth brush would also work just fine.   I then dip the club back into the water to rinse.  I then use a spare golf towel to dry them off and put back in the golf bag.  Once the wedges and irons are done I do the same process for the hybrids, 3 wood and driver except those are done one at a time and a dipped several times into the water.  Since they are hollow I don't leave them submerged in the water.  It all seems to work just fine for me.  

Regarding the original posters concern with his R7.  I would think that the club would be made to be around the same amount of water that it would run into on a typical golf course on a rainy day.  I would not submerge in water,  but would pick up a spray bottle to spritz it with water and otherwise clean it as I described with a brush and rinse.

I first run water over the entire club, under a tap.  Then soap my hands and apply it across the entire club.  Finally, use an old toothbrush and clean the grip and the club head, with a special focus on the grooves.  After that, clean it by running it under the tap again and air dry it, preferably under a fan.

Most importantly, I make sure I do every time I play.  My logic is simple.  Keep the clubs clean and there is less chance of rust and clubs getting damaged unnecessarily.

I believe washing the clubs are pretty standard but how often do you wash the grips?  I rarely do and probably should more.

Reviving a very old thread.   3,607 days old.   Do I get a prize for the oldest revival?

I digress...

I played yesterday in very wet conditions with plenty of standing water (cart path only).    My clubs were a mess even after wiping them after each shot.   I washed them with water and a toothbrush in the laundry tub but I started to wonder... I don't wash the grips as often as the clubs but I'm thinking  it would help preserve the life of the grips.

How often do you wash your grips? 

I use Lysol all purpose cleaner (you can use 409 or similar product) and a brass brush on my grips, then rinse them off with warm water and dry with a towel. They will feel like new. I've had the same grips on my clubs for 3 years. I'd say I do this once a season, but I don't have oily hands. Just do it when they start feeling less grippy than they're supposed to.
