Hello! My name is D.C. Knight, general manager and pro shop operator of Cardinal Lanes Beach Bowl. Today we're here to talk about cleaning a rubber bowling ball. Any type of cleaner can be used. You can use rubbing alcohol or you can use a approved bowling ball cleaner. It's also suggested that you use a microfiber towel to get all the oil off the surface. What you do is spray the cleaner or the alcohol on to the towel and then take the ball in your hand and gently spin the ball in the towel with the cleaner. That will get off all the oil. It's suggested that you do it every time you get done bowling after about thirty games to forty games, you want to get the ball which is called resurface. Your local pro shop can do it. It's taking sandpaper and sanding the ball down to get the grooves and the oil out. You can also leave your ball out in sun for a period of about an hour and that will bake out the oil. When I suggest you put it in the oven, just leave it out in the sun for about an hour. And that's how you clean a rubber bowling ball.
