    Keep the dings and the dirt. You want them. They make you play better. Clean handles are only for getting dirty.

    Best way to clean a handle is to dip it into a big glass of the finest single malt whiskey money can buy.Soak it for at least a day. This will not only clean it but sterilize the handle completely.
    It will also leave it with a loverly smell.

    It would help if you had a video of you playing with the dirty handle, then people might be able to suggest something (most probably a slower 5 ply blade.)

    Lol i just asked one thing.
    I bought used Viscaria, seller plays with it like 1/2 months. And handle is not like a expressive color of handle.
    I heard about a little of dish liquid, and water.

    The dirtier it gets, the better you will play. If you try to clean it, you will forget how to loop and your serves will be easier to return.

    I know in certain circles it is a complete NO NO but i do apply a very thin coat of water based polyurethane on both my blade surfaces AND my handles.
    It makes the handle easier to keep clean.

    A good way of cleaning the handle might be a clean rag soaked in alcohol based hand -
    sanitizer.
    Just give it a good rub.

    If this will not make it clean enough for you , you might have to take a 400 grit sandpaper to it.
    It is after all just a piece of wood . Sand it till its clean enough for you , then use finer sandpaper to make it nice and smooth again.

    Here is a picture of my new Hammer, see it is just a piece of wood and i rasp a bit off every day until it fits my paw

    Buy a Stiga Infinity VPS V and some glue. The handle must be identical in shape! I heard a Chinese guy had done that

    The coating will make the handle “sticky” and feel different to the skin. The sandpaper will make it rough and remove the factory treatment. I tried both. I’m not saying you shouldn’t but beware that the touch won’t be identical, if you care.

    Of course i don't care
    If one uses the proper coating it will not be sticky and as for the original factory treatment..............well, every hand is different and the handle has to fit the hand. The factory treatment , whatever it might be has only got a value if one thinks of re-selling the blade later on.

    it will be a start. The brush probably will just make a mess and spray everywhere, i would start using a rag

    If I care and it is dirty I use tooth paste with the little crystals inside, some water and old tooth brush.
    If that does not help its abrasive time. Both of these way may damage the colors though.
