If you want your golf grips to perform at their best possible level, then it’s important that you have clean golf grips.
Cleaning your golf grips helps to make them last longer, and it also gives you a better golf grip in both wet and dry conditions. You can see my quick video guide on “How To Clean Your Golf Grips” Below or read on for further details.
Many different contaminants such as sun cream, hand cream, and bite cream, not to mention sweat and maybe also the odd bit of chocolate from your mid round snack, will over time reduce the amount of traction your golf grips give you. I usually give mine a clean every couple of weeks, but obviously it depends on how often you play and also how clean you keep your hands! If you wear a golf glove, then that will likely help to keep your grips clean and tacky for a little longer.
What you need:
- Small Bowl
- Mild washing up liquid (dish soap)
- Soft scrubbing brush
How do you Clean your Golf Grips?
Add some mild washing up liquid to a bowl with a small amount of water to create plenty of soap suds. Then, give your scrubbing brush a good mix around in the bowl. Hold your grip over a sink and give all sides of the grip a good scrub. Once you’re happy the golf grip has been thoroughly washed, rinse the grip under the tap for a few seconds. Make sure that all the the soap is off the grip and then gently pat it dry with a clean towel. Finally, leave your club somewhere warm to dry. Drying should only take ten minutes or so, but it’s best to leave them a little longer to make sure they’re completely dry before storing them away or getting straight out on the course!
You can use a damp cloth rather than a scrubbing brush, but I find a brush gives the golf grip a much more thorough clean.
Until next time, bye for now!
