    Exclamation How to clean a glue paddle protection sheet when it's dusty?

    Hey guys!

    I was wondering and really want to know how I can clean my glue paddle protection sheet because it has dust on it. I'm using a Donic Formula sheet. It has one adhesive side and it's glue so it's really good for picking up the dust from your paddle after playing but I don't know how to take off the dust from the sheet anymore. Anyone please help!

    What RidTheKid said. This comes with the territory when you go with those style of sheets.

    I got lucky and was able to score a good supply but if you ever find those thick overhead protector sheets, you can just trace out your paddle and cut them out. They're not sticky on one side but stick to your rubbers just fine and they basically never wear out.

    Just use plain water. Rinse it in the sink while gently wiping it with your hand. The dirt just rinses off. Let it dry and you are good to go.
    I have only been playing for about a year, so please take that into consideration when considering any advice I try to give you. Thanks.

    I don't think even adhesive tapes will clean the covers. Just buy a new one.

    there was a thread on another forum that suggested water and a bit of soap for the thinner sheet protectors like the ones from Rev#3. I tried this method many times but it does not completely clean the sheet. It could work for you - the most you could lose is one used sheet.

    I use the thinner ones (Butterfly) . When they're not on the bat I keep them on the waxed sheets they came on. Every so often I just stick them in the washing-up water, give the adhesive side a gentle sponging, rinse them and let them dry before putting them back on clean rubbers. I never apply them to the bat unless I've cleaned the rubbers first. Simples !

    Not on the Butterfly ones I have used. I don't use them anymore, but I rinsed them off 6-8 times while I did use them.

    My Donic covers do not have an issue either. I just gently wipe them until the dust is removed. Gently.....

    Maybe some of these are made with a waterbased adhesive and some are not????

    Yeah, A lot of old company and government office supply rooms have that stuff on the shelves still, getting dusty.

    That type of plastic is outstanding cheepo custom cut opportunity.

    Better to be not so cheepo and get a new sheet.

    I currently use the Butterfly sticky sheets and I wash them about once a month with luke warm water. The glue is still ok afterwards. I used to do the same with Andro equivalent and that also worked great. Other brands like Stiga have got really poor quality sheets which you may just throw away when they become dusty.

    (Using included the wax paper when not having the sheet on the rubber is also an option to avoid the dust all together but I'm too lazy)

    Yes. Sorry I didn't catch that I typed that until you pointed that out. Yes if you can get any blank sheets of those anywhere, they make wonderful TT covers.
