Playing with your balls can get a little dirty so you’ll need to learn how to clean them the proper way. If you bought expensive balls, like Titleist Pro V1’s, then you need to handle them with TLC. They’re sensitive, soft, and special.
Normally you would throw all your dirty balls into a bucket of diluted bleach solution and allow them to soak. But this isn’t the right way to do it. It’s harsh, messy, and just plain ungentlemanly. You should take great care to clean each ball separately.
Get one cup and fill it with a mixture of warm water and sensitive skin dish detergent. Drop each ball into the cup one at a time. Let each ball soak for 15 minutes. Then take a small toothbrush and scrub any excess grime off. You should brush until you see the beautiful white urethane cover shine.
Even if you have an entire box of 100 dirty balls you should wash them this way. Lovingly washing your balls means you have extreme patience, like playing an entire 18-hole course.
Once your balls have been scrubbed clean, it’s time to give them one more rinse to remove any soapy residue. Use a separate red Solo cup for this purpose. Better if you can use holy water from your local church to give your balls a bit of extra luck.
Now that they’re rinsed and clean, you should dry off your balls. Use a soft microfiber towel to absorb any excess water and get them completely dry.
It’s an easy 3-step process to clean your balls. Scrub in soapy water, rinse thoroughly, and dry off with a clean towel. Your balls are no longer dirty and can be used for your next round.
