Thread: Ball care after bowling--pearl vs solid ball

    Default Ball care after bowling--pearl vs solid ball

    After a three game set of league bowling ( 41' typical house shot if that matters), what do you do to clean/touch up a pearl or polished ball vs a sanded/solid ball. While still at the lanes before going home. Example Proton Physix vs Astrphysix or even a UC2.
    Thanks

    At the lanes before going home Whether it's a pearl, sanded ball or a shiny ball, you clean them the same way. You use a good towel and your preferred (Good) cleaner.

    Since I'm usually using the same orb all night, it gets cleaned with Monster Gel right after I'm done. Stuff really works well.
