Clean lawn bowls with mild detergent.

Lawn bowls refers to somewhat of an outdoor bowling sport, where instead of using a bowling alley, you play the sport outdoors on a flat, grassy area that works as your outdoor bowling lane. The bowls themselves are similar to that of a bowling ball, but are smaller in shape and designed a bit differently to coincide with the surface they will be rolling across. Just with any other piece of sports equipment, the lawn bowls need to be cleaned regularly.

Step 1

Fill the sink with 2 quarts hot water and 1 tbsp. dish soap.

Step 2

Dip a rag into the soapy water, wring it out and wipe it over the lawn bowl.

Step 3

Dry the bowl with a soft polishing cloth.

Step 4

Spray or drizzle a light mist of lawn bowl polish onto a polishing cloth, and wipe into the lawn bowl. Rub the polish in well so no greasy residue is left behind.
