I play 7 times per week. Can cleaning the bat too often lead to breakages?

if so, how often should i clean my bat?

Hi Alex,

It is important to keep the rubber clean.  The more dust that gets on them the quicker they will wear out and it will also affect the performance if you hit with them while there is dust.

It is OK to clean them often with water, just a damp cloth works best.

I think a damp soft sponge(damped with cold water) would be the best to clean rubbers, but using warm or hot water can remove the spin and damage rubbers.
