Hi Alois,

how do you clean a table tennis table effectively so I don’t hinder it’s performance?

Hi Kabeer,

I just use water with a little soap solution such as a dishwashing solution.  It only needs to be very weak to get rid of some of the grease and sweat that may build up on the table.  Make sure you don't leave the table wet for too long.

Kabeer, is it a timber table top with a paint finish, or a melamine finish?

A weak soapy solution (luke-warm water) will work on either.  However, if it is a melamine surface you can use a range of other products, such as methylated spirits, a spray-on liquid household cleaner without damaging the surface. Never use an abrasive cleaner though.   In any case, make sure your rinse it off with a clean (non soapy) damp (not wet) cloth the avoid leaving a residue. If possible dry the table straight away with a chamois or micro fibre cloth.
