I’m wondering what is happening to my rubber. When I used it yesterday, it was very clean and shiny, but now, after I took if off from it’s case, I can see some of my fingerprints on it and a big mark of my hand. At first, I applied water on my hands and wiped to it but the marks are still there. I searched about how to remove “Oily Stains” and “Fingerprints” on a rubber but there are no matching results in what I want to know. Please help me, thanks.

Hi Fetish,

You could use a very weak solution of detergent to wipe down the rubber.  This will help to get the oil off.  Just add a drop to some water and wipe it over with a damp sponge.  It will dry by itself quickly.

Hi Alois,

I did all the things you've said carefully but all of these didn't resolve my problem. It affected the grip of my rubber and it became smooth a bit, its stickiness decreased and also the spin it generates to the ball. I think it's my fault. I did the wrong cleaning on it, I remembered that this Saturday, I cleaned it without washing my hands first and my hands and fingers are oily. Please give me some advice in cleaning my rubber properly coach :D . Thanks and Godbless!

It may be that your rubber is dead.  If this simple idea doesn’t work to get more grip on the bat then unfortunately, it may be time to get a new rubber.
