  • Clean Balls

    Hello all,

    gonna give our 2 sets of match balls a good clean up over weekend, what do people recommend using? (ps not interested in the aramith ball cleaner before poeple say that, just beleive its a bit of a gimmick)

    so im meaning just water and a good wipe my idea might be best,

    so wondering if anyone has any ideas?

        wouldnt the cleaning tablets that go in dishwashers be too strong?

          Aramith ball cleaner is not a gimmick in my opinion, I saw another thread where the dishwasher had destroyed a set of balls. I use the Aramith on my TC's, gets rid of all the marks and brings them up like new.

          Your choice I guess

            I second this, got a few second hand sets and they all cleaned up great with Aramith restorer and cleaner.

                Really, try it I was sceptical at first as it does seem expensive, but it seems to leave a real nice film on the balls, makes them mega shiny and clean, they run like a dream

                  Why are people so down on Aramith? I use it all the time - works a treat and a bottle lasts ages; decent value.

                    Works great for me as well . And use the Aramith cloth .

                    Why would you want to try something else ? Pay £100 + for a set of decent balls , use the right stuff in my opinion .

                    As for putting them in the dishwasher ! I don't have one .....so that would be me washing them again !!!!!!
                    Still trying to pot as many balls as i can !

                      I have heard that washing up liquid ruins balls as the greasy slippery substance cant be cleaned off .

                        oh, you will still need elbow greese

                        Aramith cleaner and cloth - all the way

                        ...and please do not do what some old guy at a club I used to go to did, he used Pledge (furniture polish) on the balls on all three tables - and he was so proud
                        The balls just skidded and slid all over the place - unbelievable
                        Up the TSF!

                          Yep forgot to say i have the cloth as well, works brilliantly, I bought some TC';s of Ebay, got the cleaning kit inc restorer, cleaner and cloth, and they are like a different set of balls.

                            I use mr sheen and use a cloth from reading glasses so that you won't scratch the balls.
