  • Cleaning Balls

    Looking for some direction on general ball cleaning. Due to Covid and our location being shut down our bowling balls have been sitting in the gutters for the past 8 months.
    During the last 4 months we had a major renovation so the balls have gotten covered in construction dust and who know what else.

    Any ideas on what we should start with for a general cleaning and then is there any other thing we can do to get the balls all shiny again.

    All our house balls are the "pool ball" type colors and the solid color balls look so faded and blah.
    They used to look like this.

      Well we didn't use the dishwasher but did just go with water and soap. Cleaned up pretty good but definitely not shiny. Going to have to get some turtle wax on them
