First of all, you need to prepare a bucket of washing mixture by mixing warm water with dish soap inside it. Just pout warm water and the soap with the ratio of 5:1.
The amount of water just only needs to cover the head of the golf clubs, not the entire stick of these clubs.
Please keep in mind that you only should use warm water. Hot water might damage the metal material of the head of the golf clubs.
In the next step, you should put your clubs inside the bucket so that the head of the clubs is totally submerges into the warm water. Leave all of these clubs there for about 7 to 10 minutes.
In case of the woods, you should not soak them into warm water. Move straight to step 3 instead.
Take all of the clubs one by one out of the basket and scrub them. You should use a thick bristle brush to get rid of tough and stubborn dirt more easily.
You need to scrub the first, the back as well as the top and bottom of a club’s head thoroughly until there is no sign of dirt. You should apply a moderate pressure on scrubbing only to avoid leaving scratches on the surfaces of the head of clubs.
After scrubbing, you should give the club a quick wash under the running water until all of the dirt comes off and the head is shiny like new.
When you finish cleaning all of the clubs, you need to dry them off with a soft and dry cloth. Make sure that all of the clubs are completely dry before you put them back into your bag to avoid over humidity inside it.
