Hey coach, we know that a rubber can be cleaned simply with a damp cloth (damped with plain water). 

Can the same be done for a tacky rubber like DHS G888?

Hi Nilabhra,

Yes the same can be done.  You may need a little more water on it than for a non sticky rubber.

Hi Coach, Do you think that by cleaning the rubber with water, some of the stickiness would be, well, "washed away"?

Not more than it would with normal wear and tear.
