How to Clean Winn Grips

By Rowena Pedrena

Winn grips are great grips to play with because of the uniqueness of the material they are made of; however, they can be difficult to clean. If you're unsure of the proper method to clean your grips, read on to make your Winn grips look as good as new.


Difficulty: Easy
Step 1
Wet a portion of your clean towel lightly with water or rubbing alcohol only. Do not use any other type of cleaning product.
Step 2
Hold your club by the shaft in one hand and gently rub the length of the grip with the moist side of the towel. Avoid rubbing the grips too aggressively since that could damage the exterior layer of the material.
Step 3
Spot-treat with the wet towel if you are still having difficulty cleaning your grip. Rub the soiled area gently.
Step 4
Pat the grip dry with a clean towel. Avoid letting it air-dry or leaving any excess moisture on any longer than the time it takes you to clean it. When wet, Winn grips become ineffective, losing their unique tackiness that separates them from other grips on the market.

Tips & Warnings

Do not use any brushes to clean your grips, and avoid applying the water or rubbing alcohol directly onto the grip. Also, stay away from cleaning solvents or products that are soap-based, since the chemical reaction on the grip can damage its texture and feel.
