Hello, i just bought a pair of rubbers a month ago and you said they will or can be used from 6 to 12 months. now, just after only a month, they're starting to lose grip. i play outside. i try to keep the sunlight off it but i can't help it. 

Also, i clean my rubber every time after i play. i sometimes use a damp towel or rubber cleaner or both. whenever i clean i, it leaves faint lines on my rubber, is that normal or should i use more water.

thank you for your time

Hi Jonathan,

If you are playing outside it will be exposed to sunlight.  This is not ideal at all.  You need to keep it away from the sun as much as you possibly can to try to preserve the rubber.  Sunlight will damage it very quickly.
