      We use liquid tide mixed in water, nothing fancy ... and works as well as anything else. You do need a bunch of elbow grease too, but Ed already said that:

        we use the urethane cover from quality, the maroon ones(it the same material as the power lift "c" tracks) and to get them spotless only takes a little lane cleaner (mixed about 10 to 1) spray it on a rag. wipe the lift rods with damp rag, then wipe dry with clean like a champ.

          I agree with shamefowjze. those red covers were the best, plus it was easy to see where the are dirty.
          I cleaned them a few times every night with a all porpose cleaner. worked wonders, and by cleanng them a few times in a night they stayed clean and naver gave any hassles

            use straight poly-chem st-21 or PA cv-98 or simular strong cleaner. spray them down let it soak in, about 5 minutes then respray and wipe them off if they are real dirty it will take a couple of times. after cleaning about a billion lift rods i've found this works best for me.

              A2Pinchaser, i've used a rag or a brillo pad w/water and cleaned rod covers with a little
              elbow. It works good and you save money and
              rod cover life.

                If you are cleaning the gum rubber ones, or even the heavy duty ones from "B" (red), be careful as some cleaning agents actually deteriorate the material. The covers will stretch, and/or tear. [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/frown.gif[/img]

                I like to use the "Non Toxic Machine Cleaner" from DBA. It gets them really clean, however if you let it set too long on them, you run into the affore mentioned problem. Lane cleaner works well too, but requires more scrubbing. [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/frown.gif[/img]
