Do you wash overgrips?
if so how?
i dint no u could wash overgrips?...i guess u have white ones then....i use black or blue now coz u cant really see the dirt.
I read it in another forum, i wasnt sure whether you could wash it? i want wilson pro in another colour or tournagrip with the new feel all the time. Because i love the brand new feel, then it goes horrible,
Anyway... how do i wash grips?
use a black grip. it lasts longer in terms of imaging and visual impression. :mrgreen:
Yeah, by washing you will lose a lot of feel. Probably not worth it.
You can't wash an overgrip. The purpose of using them is so that you can remove them and throw them away after they get dirty.
thats what i thought, i read it in another forum.
i want wilson pro overgrip in yellow or blue. Does yellow or blue get dirty?
probly try super grap. Is it worth it?
(Im in UK)
I use a regular old clorox wipe to clean up my white or yellow overgrips. I usually lay my racquet on a picnic table with the handle hanging off the side. Step on the head and use a "shoeshine" type motion to buff the overgrip.
The disenfectant wipe helps keep the grip from getting "funky".
Washing overgrips doesn't work, it just ruins the grip.
1) The grip doesn't get clean.
2) The absorbent overgrips are easily torn when soaked, and take a decent time to dry.
Its a waste of a time. Most over grips go for like $3 a pack. Just get new ones.
Mine gets thoroughly washed with sweat when I play on hot days.
Well, I tried soaking on in engine degreaser, oxy-clean, and detergent (seperately). They don't get "clean" because the way pro overgrips are constucted the grip traps dirt inside the middle of the grip. Personally, I just use both sides of the og to "double" their life. It's about the same on both sides except that the backside is a little less tacky and slightly more rough. Almost the same though unlike some other overgrips.
I'm guessing you would want to wash it to extend the life of one. Rather than washing, if you REALLY wanted to reuse grips, turn it around and use the otherside. It definitely does NOT have the same feel, but it'll get the job done. I've done it once, at the end when I finally replaced it, it was really nasty (both sides were dirty).
never heard of washing overgrips.... you don't wash overgrips you replace it after it wears out...
I don't know what the point would be in wash over grips. Even if that 30 mins you put into that one stupid overgrip comes out ok, it is going to have no feel or be tacky at all.
You can wash overgrips???? Why not just buy new ones?
get a set of new overgrips...
dont be el cheapo grande
cuz new ones COST MONEY!
and money dont grow on trees
Grips are wear items... Replace them with new ones!
I also heard you can collect all the fuzz on your strings and glue them back onto the balls.
Oh yea I forgot.
But seriously whats the point in washing an overgrip? So you can remove all the grip already on there???
