    Default How to Clean a Composite Bat

    One of my players asked what would be a good way to clean her Easton Stealth Clarity. The bat is picking up the ball smears and she'd like to remove the smears without damaging the bat.

    Thanks,
    Ken

    Soft Scrub, been using it for years. If you have build up. It saves some arm muscle if you use the dish sponge with the plastic backing that doesn't scratch . Otherwise we just spray it on , let it set and wipe off with the sponge.

    Definitely! My dd's white Phenix gets dirty if you just look at it, let alone ball smudges, etc. Magic Eraser cleans it up great.

    Soap and water and a bit of an abrasive sponge works great, but go a little easy on the colored lettering that can scratch off. But other than that I was surprised how easily the CF3 I recently worked on cleaned up. I thought it would take some work but no problem.
