Hello there iam a beginner at table tennis and i love watching your videos. It gives me great tips and tricks. (I especially love the panda XD). 

In one of your videos it tells us on how to clean our rubber by just breathing on it then rubbing it. After i did that there is still alot of dust on the rubber. It is very hard to get it off. Can you please assist me on how to get rid of the dust on my rubber.

I have a Stiga Bounce Perform 2 Star bat. 

 

Thanks!

Hi,

The best thing to use is a damp sponge.  This will get the dust off.

I use dish soap with water (you don't want to have to much soap) so mix a little soap with more water and take a sponge and clean the rubber. Go in strait line vertical. If this is too much soap you can take your forearm and get some of it off. Let the sheet of rubber dry. to clean the other do the same thing just put the clean side on a piece of rubber so it doesn't collect dust. I have a rubber cleaner but I still use this method because it also get the oils off. Depending on how much you play I would clean it once to twice a week (or if you notice it is really dusty). If you are in a match breathing on your rubber will help get some of the dust off but not all, but since you can't use soap in water in a match breathing on it is the best thing to do. I hope this helps.

Thanks for the reply I will give it a go! Also i was searching on a website the other day and some people said that breathing on your bat and rubbing it in game ruins the bat. They also said that only professionals do it because they get sponsored or something.

I don't trust many forums. Maybe I have had my bat few a year (HRT rosewood with DHS hurricane 3) and nothing has happened to it.
