Every swing you take, every putt you make, brings unwelcome dirt or debris to your golf clubs. Fortunately, it is not that hard to maintain the cleanliness in them, and you will only need a few supplies to help you carry out the task of cleansing your clubs back to their pristine appearances.
You need the dirt or debris to separate from the head of the club easily. This can be achieved by mixing enough amount of detergent (or any mild soap you can find) with warm, but not boiling, water. You will need to have a good lather from the mixture by stirring it with your hands. Once done, soak the club head for about 5 minutes. Be sure that only the head of the club is submerged. Drain water if necessary. For delicate clubs, which may be prone to damage by water or detergent, give it a quick dunk instead of having it soaked for 5 minutes.
Deep-seated dirt or debris will not likely loose or fall off the club after submerging it into a solution of water and detergent. Thus, you will need a small, bristled scrub brush to rub the remaining shingle off. If you can’t find one, you may use a spare toothbrush as an alternative. Scrub the club gently, moderate if necessary, to get rid of the residual grit. Avoid using any brush alternative that would scratch the surface of the club, especially the abrasive types. However, steel wool pad might be used to rubdown any present rust.
If you like a specialized brush, PrideSports Golf Club Brush is offered as a utility to help clean any club as well as shoe cleats.
Explain: You basically need a bucket for the aforementioned detergent and water mixture. However, after the soaking, you can use the same bucket for rinsing. Just drain the mixture and replace it with clean water. Rinse with both your hands and the club in the water. You can do this three times or up until the replacement water is free of bubbles and soapy feel. Alternatively, which is also a lot easier, you can make use of a hose or faucet, especially a sprayer hose. Just position your hands and the club head under the running water and rinse.
If you fancy a highly functional alternative, then the Portable Golf Club Washer (for Irons) should be one of the items in your golf cleaning kit. Its heavy-duty bristles clean club grooves.
You will need at least two towels or rags; one for cleaning the grip and briansclub another for drying the entire club. To clean the grip, you need a rag or towel dip on a mixture of a dish detergent and lukewarm water. This will help you get rid of the grease accumulated from holding the club. Wipe the grip with the damp rag or towel. Alternatively, you can use window cleaner products like Windex or Glass Plus to clean the grip quickly.
And just like what every man needs after every bath, your club needs a towel to dry after rinsing. Once you are certain that your club is thoroughly rinsed, with all the dirt off it, you can use a rag or towel to dry it. Be sure to dry it completely for a pristine clean, including its shaft, ferrule and grip.
Wiping your club after every use is a key to minimize the time as well as the difficulty in cleaning your golf clubs. You can bring with you products like the Club Glove Microfiber Tandem Towel, which is a highly absorbent piece of towel that is not only good for wiping dirt or debris off your clubs, but for wiping golf balls as well.
