Golf equipment is very important for those who enjoy playing golf, so it is important to take good care of it in general so that you can use it for a longer period of time.

So do you know how golf clubs should be maintained?

If you want to keep your golf clubs clean and dry, wipe them gently with a damp towel after each use, especially the places where the hands are often held. After wiping, let the club dry before storing it.

Here are the simple 6 steps you need to take in order to clean your golf clubs.

Step 1: Prepare the cleaning materials 

There are many specialty stores where you can purchase cleaning tools for your beloved clubs. These tools make it easy to clean your clubs. Alternatively, you can also collect some household items to clean the clubs – of course, you can also clean them directly in the sink or bathtub, but it is recommended that you follow the process below. 

Let’s get started: get an old toothbrush or other plastic brush, a towel, and a plastic bucket, as well as a bottle of neutral detergent.

Step 2: Prepare the washing water 

Then put the bucket in the sink or bathtub, squeeze some detergent into it, add warm water, and shake it well. The amount of water should be enough to submerge the club head.

It is important to note that the water should not be too hot (as thermal expansion may cause the metal hoops to fall off the irons).

Step 3: Put the irons into the barrel 

The prepared water should be brought to the house’s outdoor faucet near the one used for the garden or washed directly in the sink.

Place the bucket on the ground and soak the iron heads in it. Make sure your club head and neck remain above water. By soaking your irons in warm water for a few minutes, grime from the clubheads will be released and any chemical residue from the golf course will be diluted.

Step 4:  Cleaning the grooves

Use an old toothbrush (or other plastic brush) to clean the grooves on the faces of the irons after soaking them for 1-2 minutes. Getting rid of all dirt and residue is an important step in cleaning your irons. Then, clean the head and sole of the iron using a toothbrush or other brush.

The best way to avoid fraying the irons is to use a soft brush. If the dirt on the iron has become hardened over time, it will take more time to soak and use a hard brush.

Step 5: Cleaning the club head

Be careful not to splash water on the pole as you rinse the club head. Ensure that dirt from the grooves of the face has been removed after flushing away the detergent.

Step 6: Dry the head and shaft

Using an old towel, wipe the shaft and clubhead at the same time to remove dirt and moisture from the clubhead to keep your irons as clean as new.

It is now complete to clean your golf club. They are just waiting for you to take them out of the bag and start playing.
