    Default Best way to clean a grip?

    Since I sprung for a new Scott GS, I want to sell my like new older Scott G. Before I put it on the market I want to clean up the grip a bit and was wondering what works best? Seems like in the past I read the Mr. Clean Magic Erasers work well?

    Toothpaste and old toothbrush.

    Don’t know about best, but these works really well. Good for fly lines too.

    I was just in the yard casting my nrx lp and thinking the cork looks like ****, I have read all the above cleaning options, my question is how many of you clean your cork grips and do you think there is any adverse affect to the grip?
    Thanks, Mike.

    As S&S says Soft Scrub will also work.

    If the stains are still bad AFTER you scrub the dirt off, you can mix up a household solution of laundry bleach, soak a paper towel with it and wrap the cork with the wet paper towel.
    Regards,

    It depends on the quality and age of the cork.

    Many cheaper cork handles have fillers and hard brushing with aggressive media can dislodge them. Hot soapy soft rags are wiser here.

    Old cork also deteriorates unevenly. Hard growth rings are spaced between softer material that can more easily be removed thus leaving ridges in the grip. Go carefully here too.

    Baby wipes work great and they are non abrasive.
