Seems like a good item for keeping reels clean as well. They also recommend it for impregnated fly lines , IMHO that alone makes it worth the cost.
Hi imxer,

Thanks for the report. The Wondercloth sounds like a good idea. Let us know if you have any trouble with it or it stops working after a short time.

Will do.

Noticed an item in a catalog for a small piece of the cloth to use for drying flies. Price makes the larger cloth a bargain by comparison, but I'd guess only a bargain if you can use the thing. If it will clean lines without damaging them, that's enough for me.
For just cleaning grips, I have to agree with the guys recommending dishwashing detergent.

Am I the only one that prefers 'Dirty Cork'?

I rub any fish slime left after the release into my cork, I like to think it leaves good Karma in the rod. Just something I do. lol
