    Well i used these cleaners on tenergy and my tenergy's always last very well, i also used them on hurricane with no problems at all.

    Rubbers are always better when they are new, so new rubbers, use cleaner, dont let them get wet or moist from humidity and buy new rubbers regularly.

    Assuming you want to be a spinny good player, pros do not use a rubber for 6 months!!
    So why should we if we want to play our best and spin as much as we are able at our lower level.

    It is expensive, but i do not drink much or do drugs, so i spend my money on tt if i have some left!!

    I believe you completetly missed my point. You say the one you use has some type of alcohol in it, and a quick google search shows that you should not expose rubber with alcohol due to multiple factors.

    I've never used cleaners, and my rubbers always last long. Both our rubbers last long; I don't use cleaner, but you do. How would you ever know if the cleaner is actually doing something?

    Because after I use the cleaner I got more spin again immediately or more importantly grip. I need my rubber to grip to play well.

    couple of photos attached, black sheet looks better than in photo.

    IMO you should never clean a rubber with water, not unless you blow dry with a hair dryer after!!
    MOG, a dot of water on my hand, and I wipe the rubber, it is dry in under a minute because there is so little water in the first place.

    A damp sponge (NOT A WET SPONGE) the same thing happens. The rubber is dry in under a minute. And I do not put my racket away wet. That is foolish. I let it sit for quite a while after I clean the rubber while I put other things away. I leave my racket standing upright while I pack my bag. And then I put the racket away. There is no way the water sinks into the rubber and stays in the rubber. With oils, you have to leave them on a long time for them to sink into the rubber. The water is not on for long enough to sink in. And there is not enough of it to sink in.

    So, either your idea is silly, or how much water you thought you might use to clean the rubbers is. LOL.

    No need for any cleaners. I don't care if someone really wants to use them. That is their business if they want to pay to have the rubber wear out faster. But I definitely know my way of cleaning my rubbers is going to cause the least damage to the rubber of all options.

    Carl that's fine, I had a vision of you using gallons of water to clean your rubber!!

    Anyway more importantly, do you just use a drop of water to clean your balls or do you use some soap??

    I clean my ballz with goat milk and honey and sometimes I add frankincense and myrrh. No harsh detergents for the family jewels.

    Yeah. I agree so the thread name is changed. And I think there is no more use for this thread at all. So....it is closed.
