Cleaning must be done to avoid dirt and mold that grows within the grooves of your golf clubs. You can also maintain the sturdiness of the club if you clean it regularly. The quality of golf clubs degrades more when it gets dirtier. If you want your clubs to look good as the new ones, you must know how to properly clean it.
• Assemble your cleaning materials.
There are different ways you can use when cleaning your golf clubs. You can prefer your own style or follow the usual way of cleaning it. There are many cleaning kits available in golf shops. You can buy this kit if you do not have the necessary materials for cleaning. You can easily clean the clubs if you have this one. If you do not have an extra money, another option is to gather all the cleaning materials found in your house. All you need is a bucket, an old and used toothbrush or any other brush with soft plastic bristles, a dishwashing liquid soap, and a towel. If you are planning to clean the clubs in your bathroom or sink, there is no need for a bucket.
• Create soap suds.
Pour a small amount of the dish washing liquid soap on your bucket. Then, pour enough warm water to create soap suds. Do not use boiling water because it may loosen the parts of your golf clubs.
• Submerge the clubheads of your golf irons in the bucket.
Do the cleaning near a faucet or a water hose to have an unlimited water source. Put the bucket in a stationary position and dip the golf irons in the bucket. Avoid submerging the ferrules. Just let the iron rest in the warm water for about 5 minutes. This is to loosen up the dirt on the edge and the face of the club. The suds will be responsible for removing oils and chemicals on the heads.
• Clean the dirt off the grooves.
After five minutes of soaking, grab one club at a time. Use an old brush to remove the dirt in the grooves. You must do this with precision because this is the most important part of your club. Also, clean up the base of the clubs. Remove all the visible dirt and debris. If you cannot remove the solidified dirt and debris, you should soak the club for a longer time. In this case, you are allowed to make use of a stiff-bristled brush. However, you are prohibited to use a wire-bristled material since it can damage the surface of the club.
• Rinse off your clubs.
Use a water hose or a faucet to wash off the suds in your clubs. After washing the clubheads, check again for remaining dirt and debris. Bear in mind that you must not wash the shaft.
• Dry the whole club.
With the use of an old towel or cloth, let the whole club dry. Also, wipe the shaft to remove the dust particles. Make sure to keep the clubs in your bag only when they are already dry.
• Cleaning fairway woods.
Soaking in the water for too long is not applicable for the woods. You must only dip the metal woods into the pail of suds quickly. Using a moist cloth, wipe the club, and then dry it using a towel. When cleaning the persimmon clubheads, you can use the moist cloth. You are allowed to use an old toothbrush for cleaning off the dirt on the clubface.
This is the simplest way to clean up your golf clubs. It will only take you a few minutes to make your clubs as clean as the brand new ones.
You can replace the golf iron with a hybrid golf clubs.
