Default Re: How do I clean the cork without damage?

So what is the best way to clean up the surface. Will 600 grit sandpaper work? Do I need to go with the grain (arnound) rather than against (lenght wise) on the rod?

Surely ghe rod building forum has a bunch of GURU's that know bunches on cleaning.

Thanks

If it is only dirty as in "Too Much Fish Slime" warm water and dish detergent will do nicely. I would not sand a cork unless I were trying to decrease the diameter of the handle.
