    I use aramith ball cleaner for the cueball and autoglym super resin polish for the object balls. Then I wash them with warm water in between uses. Usually repeat the polish every month or so.

    Try optical lens cleaner - solution 30 is the stuff I have.

    Can you screw back like Trump with furniture polish ? Could be good for a laugh to have a go.
    That Aramith ball restorer is abrasive, don't know about the Aramith cleaner, and Mr.Sheen cuts the friction between the balls and makes every contact super clean; apply sparingly and let it dry for ten minutes, then you must buff it well with a clean cloth to remove all the excess, let it cure for a hour, then the polish is hard and filling the microscopic valleys on the surface. Any polish left on the peaks will cause bad contacts and the balls will react poorly, if done properly you can screw back an awful lot more, sometimes like Trump.

    been there before when the balls had just been polished up with Sheen/Pledge and it was terrible all over, then the old man who did the polishing walked by all pleased with his work!
    not found anything as good or better than the Aramith stuff - be surprised how far a little goes

    To be perfectly honest, unless you're the owner of a snooker or pool club with lots of tables and sets of balls you don't need one. Clean your balls the same as washing the dishes by hand, dry and polish with Mr. Sheen, Ooooh, Matron!

    Does anyone have any personal views on actually using one of these ball polishers and if so what cleaning fluid they spray over the balls to start with
