My cork handles look like asphault. Does anyone know a way to clean them up a bit?

Dial soap and a dish rag will do wonders.

Use a Brillo pad with soap built in and scrub lightly under running water. They will be good a new with all the sweat and grundge off of them. I didn't believe it would work but it did.

Bleach and water mix, wet rag with solution and rub the grips. They will be clean and look new. I do mine once a year.

I use water with 10% Bleach mixed into the solution. After it dries, you can use Elmer's Wood Filler in the GOlden Oak color to fill in any holes. I smooth it out then do a light sand. It makes the cork better than new.

That's a great idea. Ill have to try that. I used warm water dish soap and an Sos pad. Looks a little better but not "new"

I use rubbing alchol, and a old sock. Cleans all the carp off of them.

You can also just sand them with some real fine sandpaper. It takes off that outer layer of nastiness and makes them look brand new again in seconds.



FISH ON!!

I clean mine with warm water and toothpaste. Rub it on then wipe clean with a dish rag.

I use Windex or 409 and a rag, spray on and wipe off, may have to do twice, but it's easy!

I've had luck with Simple Green and a towel that has a little rough nap to it. Looks good as new.
