Products to use:
An inexpensive way to clean your golf clubs at home are items you probably already have.
Here’s a list
- A bucket
- Dish soap
- An old toothbrush (or any plastic bristled brush)
- Clean towel
- And a beer! ( this of course is for you )
Fill your bucket with warm soapy water, enough to cover the club heads. (do not use hot water as this will loosen the glue on the ferrules).
Take your irons (no putters or woods) and place them in the soapy water, make sure the water covers the club heads. Let iron soak in the water for a few minutes. This will loosen any caked up dirt, this is also a good time to take a swig of your beer.
After they have been soaking, take each club and use your old toothbrush to clean out the grooves on the club face. also clean the sole and the back of the club head. ( never use a stiff wire brush as this will scratch the surface). Rinse with clean water.
Take your clean dry towel and dry off the club head, then wipe the shaft. I will also let mine sit out for a little bit before I put back in the bag, just to make sure they air dry also.
Now its time for the woods. I never put woods in the water to soak, don’t want to ruin that nice finish. I will just dip them in the suds, rinse with water, and dry with a towel.
Note! You never want to put persimmon woods in water to soak, this will damage your woods, simply just wipe with a moist cloth and dry.
Before I put everything away and clean up, I always use the soapy water and brush to clean my golf shoes. Got to keep them looking good also.
I know these are all common and simple tasks to clean clubs, just wanted to throw my 2 cents in. Besides it’s a good excuse to enjoy a nice brewsky!
