    Back in the day to get a little more life out of practice balls, tried washing and drying them. In the past five years, washed and dried a few Tretorn Micro-X balls and had them explode.

    Had more balls than dough, chaz. Alway tried to revive my tired, dead, dirty balls by cleaning and fluffing them. Lost their pop.

    Their body sprays are trash. I used to use them, but then I realized hey this is idiotic because first of all it doesn't really smell that good at all, and it only lasts like 10 minutes. Personally I'd rather put on actual cologne than use body spray.

    Their Shower Gels aren't bad if you get the right ones - I have a bottle of that Axe Shock Shower Gel, that **** is pretty intense. If your ever congested take a shower using that stuff, it will clear you up. It's kind of like rubbing Vicks Vapor Rub all over your body in the shower except it smells much better. It's the menthol they put in it.
