Things need to prepare

How to clean golf clubs with 6 easiest steps
Step 1: Suds Creation
Mix in two teaspoons of dishwashing liquid and warm water to create suds.
- Make sure the water is not too hot.
- Do not pour so much water, you just need enough water to cover the heads of irons.
Step 2: Put Irons in the Bucket
Put your irons in the bucket. Check if clubheads are completely covered by water and suds.
Wait just a couple minutes.
This step will help loosen dirt in the grooves of the club’s surface.
Friendly Remind: DO NOT put putters or drivers in the Bucket
Step 3: Clean the Grooves
After waiting for 1-2 minutes, use an old toothbrush (or other plastic-bristled brush) to clean out the grooves. You need to do this carefully to ensure that all dirt and debris are removed.
In addition, you should also drag the brush across the sole of the iron and over the back of the head of your clubs to remove dirt, grass and other debris.
Step 4: Rinse-Off the Clubhead
Rinse off the clubhead by using the garden hose (or tap). When the suds are completely washed away, once again, take a look at the club to make sure all dirt is removed from the grooves.
Friendly remind: You should to splash water up the shaft.
Step 5: Dry the Clubhead
Dry off the clubhead with your old towel. Moreover, you should also drag the towel up the shaft of the club. By doing this, you will be able to remove any loose debris from the shaft and this will also ensure that the shaft doesn’t go back into your bag wet.
Step 6: Cleaning Woods/hybrids
Once again, it is important to take note that you should never submerge persimmon or metal woods in water.
Rather, what you should do is to quickly dip metal woods/hybrids into the sudsy water, rub with a moist cloth, then dry with a dry cloth.
- You should use a moist cloth to clean off persimmon clubheads, then dry them immediately.
- I strongly recommend that you should use a soft-bristled brush to clean out the grooves on woods/hybrids.
Above are 6 easiest steps to clean your golf clubs. Hope these will help you.
