Cleaning Golf Club Grips

Golf is a really fascinating, and enjoyable, game that can bring hours of enjoyment, and allow people to not only relax but conduct some fairly useful business as well. This can lead to some rather unique situations that you won't find in many other situations. If you don't properly clean your golf club grips periodically, you can easily find your pants, face, or other clothes dirty without you realizing it. Luckily, cleaning golf club grips isn't all that difficult.

  1. Proactive measures. After each round of golf, take the time to look at the grips of your clubs. If you notice that they are dirty, muddy, or sticky take the time to wipe them off. Often times by simply taking a little time wipe the clubs down after each round, you will be able to prevent a lot of work later on.
  2. Wash. If there is more dirt or mud than you can easily get off on the grips and clubs you will need to do a little bit of washing. All you really need to do is use a little warm soapy water and a rag to wipe it off. Once you have washed the dirt, rub the grip dry by using a dry soft rag.
  3. Inspect and repeat. With the clubs washed and dry, closely inspect the dirty areas again. You may need to repeat the process a few times to remove all of the dirt and grime that may have accumulated. Depending on how dirty the clubs and the grips are, you may find yourself needing to repeat the process as many as three or four times to get them completely clean.
  4. Inspect the grips. Once you have the grips clean, it's time to take a look at the condition of the grips themselves. If they are frayed, torn, or even oozing glue you will want to remove the damaged grips, and have them replaced as soon as possible. This can often help prevent many of the problems you may find yourself experiencing with dirty grips.
  5. Check your bag. Don't forget to take the time to look at the golf bag itself. There are many times when you may find yourself cleaning the grips of a club, only to pull it out again later on and find that it is still dirty. By periodically cleaning the bag itself you can easily remove one of the larger causes of dirty grips.
