Make Your Clubs Feel Like New With A 1 Grip Clean (Video)
Make Your Clubs Feel Like New With A 1 Grip Clean (Video)

I love to watch golfers walking around pro shops and trying out new clubs. You always see them, they pick a club up and they go "Whoa that feels lovely, that feels a lot better than mine. I might buy that $300 that yeah, yeah that feels lovely." And I think what are they actually feeling? The only thing you could feeling when you pick a golf club up maybe bar and the weight of it, it's the grip. Now it's a $300 club but it's probably a five or $10 grip. But they're picking it up and they're judging the club on the grip, on the quality and the feel of the grip. "Yeah that feels lovely, that feels a lot better than my clubs." And in reality what they're judging is how good the grip is in comparison to their own clubs. Now, if you’ve got a set of golf clubs in there, the club shaft and the club head is probably still as good as the day you bought it because they don’t really change but the grip is the thing that deteriorates after more than a couple of seasons the chances are the grip has dried out.

Maybe it started to crack a little bit and it will certainly have lost its tackiness becoming a bit sleek and a bit smooth. Now one of the real issues here is the rubber is porous and the natural oil is on your hands gets into the pores of the grip then the grip stops becoming as tacky onto your hands and actually becomes a little bit slippery. So, one of the best ways to change your grips rather than spending eight or $10 a grip having them all cut off and replaced is just give them a really good wash. Now if you wash them in a sort of a washing up liquid kind of a soapy suede kind of a thing in the sink, the washing up liquid has chemicals in there that would dissolve the grease like those on your dishes. So, it will dissolve the grease and the grime in the grips. So, when the good lady is not around the house and she is not watching because most people don't want to see golf clubs in the kitchen sink, load all the clubs into the kitchen sink, a nice big kettle full of really, really hot water in there and a good dose of washing up liquid. Leave them to sit for a about 10 minutes until the water starts to cool down a little bit then get in there with a scrubbing brush and just give them a good one solver, just it will much feel like you're knocking off the top coating. Take them all out, give them a good dry, dry the shaft as well because you don’t want to go rusty and I bet that will give you about another six months to a year of feeling like the golf club feels like new again. Next time you pick it, you waggle your own clubs and you think yeah that feels better, that feels like new again. And particularly that would be beneficial for you next time you play in the rain because the club won't feel so slippery. So, it's feeling like a new set of clubs or a new set of grips with a $1 grip clean.
