    Have you tried that?
    No, I haven't but I may well do. The oven cleaner has done such a great job, I personally think it will be tough to get them better. It was a weird experiment I know but its paid off! If nobody else ever tries it, then fair enough but I'll be doing it again for sure. I wouldn't go higher then 35 degrees though.

    how about using the Aramith cleaner in the tablet dispenser instead?

    Cheers for that , i might just put them through a wash cycle with no tablet .
    It certainly won't do any harm. I think Rinse Aid actually helps.

    What damage can oven cleaner do to the dishwasher? It seems fine to me and if anything, its helped clean it! It looks pretty good to be honest. I have heard balls going misty using a normal dishwasher tablets which is why i used the oven cleaner. They didn't go misty and look and play great!

    I am reluctant to put Oven Cleaner in the dishwasher , do they come out ok without putting this in and just using a normal tablet ?

    Ha! Just joking. But I won't personally be adding oven cleaner to my dishwasher. It's nasty stuff. I don't want that all inside the dishwasher. God knows what damage that is doing.

    I just simply put it in the slot where the dishwasher tablet usually goes. Just poured a bit in to about half way. I've just got out from my room from a practice session and the balls were running beautifully.

    How did you add the oven cleaner to the dishwasher?

    Ok, so you may think I am messing with you here but today i tried and experiment. I put my 1G balls in the dishwasher but instead of using dishwasher tablets, i used oven cleaner. Obviously with rinse aid as well as you can't escape that plus it cant do any harm. Well, on 35 degrees they came out like new! I am super impressed. I used a microfibre cloth just to wipe them down at the end but yes, this is my new way of cleaning them. Great experiment! Plus, not one single kick so far since. I was getting 3 or 4 during practice before this.

I'm not sure if its because of the new cloth or whether the balls are holding static which attracts the dust. Any thoughts from anyone?
    you need to use the vaccum cleaner after you brush... Ive seen this before, dust bunnies galore... greeen ones at that...

    Sounds like static to me. That's the problem with using Mr. Sheen on wood furniture as well, the dust flies in after. What cloth did you have fitted?
