Cleaning Products Frequently Asked Questions
How do you clean golf clubs?
If you don’t have the product that is the best way to clean golf clubs - Impact Detect - then you can do the following method at home to clean your golf clubs: mix gentle soap and warm water together in a bucket and scrub the club head gently with a soft-bristled brush. Then, towel dry and leave to air dry in an open space. One of the benefits of Impact Detect and other professionally formulated club cleaners is that they can be done on the course in a one-bottle solution rather than taking your clubs home and cleaning them in the sink.
What to clean your golf clubs with
For metal golf clubs, you need certain cleaners to make sure you don’t affect their material or performance. Gentle soaps will suffice, however, this does require a little trial and error. We’d recommend using a properly formulated club cleaning product, such as Impact Detect, as this water-based solution can be sprayed directly onto the club, and its in-built brush will scrub away the dirt. As far as golf club cleaning products go, this is one of the best ones.
How to clean golf clubs with a brush
It’s important you use a soft-bristled brush for this or specifically a golf club cleaning brush, otherwise, you risk damaging or scratching the clubhead surface which will, over time, wear them down. This will impact your shots, your game, and lead to the need to replace them far sooner than you otherwise would need to. Cleaners like Impact Detect have a built-in rubber-bristled brush that is very gentle on the clubhead, so it shouldn’t scrub away the club markings when it’s removing mud and dried grass. If you’re using a brush with the warm water and soap method, please make sure it’s a soft-bristled brush or just a clean cloth.
How to clean rust off golf clubs
You can use things you may already have at home to clean rust off golf clubs, though you do need to be careful. Soaking your clubhead in Coca-Cola, for example, can remove rust, but the chemicals in the fizzy drink can start to wear away the healthy parts of your metal clubhead too. We’d recommend soaking your clubhead in this drink, or in a vinegar and lemon juice solution, for only a few minutes before you remove it and scrub at the rust with a soft brush. You can find rust remover products, but again these must be used with care as they can be very aggressive. Always check the messaging and instructions on any rust removal product you buy for your golf clubs, as they could be harmful. Only use the solution on the rust itself, don’t soak the clubhead in it, as it could harm the finishings and materials of the club.
