Can I clean bowling ball with Windex?
According to most bowlers who have used Windex as a bowling ball cleaner, it does wonders getting dirt and grime off the bowling ball. Windex can be a great option if your ball has been mucked up by more than just oil at the lanes, but there are better homemade bowling ball cleaning options out there for you.
What is the best thing to use to clean a bowling ball?
Clean a bowling ball’s porous outer surface with rubbing alcohol to remove dirt, grease and grime contaminants. Wipe the ball down vigorously with an alcohol soaked towel or microfiber cloth as soon as possible after bowling. Do not soak the entire bowling ball in alcohol for any amount of time.
Does rubbing alcohol clean bowling balls?
Isopropyl alcohol isn’t a very good bowling ball cleaner as we have already shown you. It also isn’t good for a reactive bowling ball. You can think of it this way: You know how isopropyl alcohol dries out your skin. Reactive bowling balls have pores in them similar to skin.
Can you use acetone to clean bowling balls?
A basic ball cleaner works or just go buy a gallon of acetone from the local hardware store and put that in a bottle. Once you “feel” like the ball needs a little more major work, then the proshop will give it a great scrub and resurface when needed.
What is the difference between a solid and a pearl bowling ball?

Wipe the surface of the ball dry with a microfiber towel. Apply bowling ball polish onto each side of your bowling ball.
