    Dusting first is a no brainer, whether you mop or not buffing is usually last. Having said that; there's really no right way, it's what achieves the desired results based on your approach surface, products used and climate.

    We don't condition our approaches or buff them. We dust and spot clean with methylated spirits twice a day. Our approaches are known to be consistently, slow which is what is preferred. Social bowlers don't care for speed and league bowlers can use a sock if their preference is a fast approach.
