Hi Harikrishnan,

The best idea is just keeping it clean by wiping the dirt off it. 

I have seen where people have put oil on their rubbers.  I haven't tested this and it is illegal as well if you are playing competitively.

Once your rubber loses it's grip, the best option is to buy some new rubber.

If U keep ur padlle in a case, the air presierse the padlle which gives more friction.

Custom made bats are designed so you can replace the rubbers once they wear out. We have a video on this under our lessons page.
