Hello, I'm Mike Rhodes of Ten Pin Alley here in Wilmington, North Carolina dealing on how getting the oil out of your bowling ball. For this you'll need a bowling ball, ball stand, a heater. As you know they condition the lanes with oil and as you bowl, it gets on your bowling ball. This new react of resin balls do tend to soak up a lot of the oil and so, as you're bowling, it's going to get in the core itself. There are methods to removing the oil and a lot of them are home can cut, that I've heard stories of people baking their bowling balls in the oven or putting it in a hot soapy water. All these things I've heard, some success stories; but I've also heard harsh stories. Aha, them ever baking the bowling ball and their core turn to poly glue and stuff. What I would recommend is bring it into your local pro shop; most pro shops have a method of getting the oil out of there. Just to show for example, I took this bowling ball which is fairly new in front of a heater. As you can tell, the oils just came right to the surface which will inhibit the reactiveness of the bowling ball after a point in time. You do need to bring your bowling to a pro shop and let them remove that oil for you and get that surface back to new as oppose to doing it at home because bad things can happen if you're not paying close attention especially with heat. So, if you need your bowling ball clean, come and see your local pro shop operator and he'll take care of you.
