Hi Usman,

We recommend water only to clean your rubber.  If they are really dirty, you can use an alcohol based swab sometimes.  You don't need to use these regularly though.

Just clean it regularly with a damp sponge.

Make sure you dry it off when you wash it.

Hi Alois, I see why you mention water as a basis for cleaning your equipment as it costs nothing and is effective but before big matches and training sessions would you not use proper cleaning equipment? Such as chemical foams.

@Jamie - no, I don't think chemical foams do a better job.
