How do you clean an antique bowling ball?

I have a rather old bowling ball that needs to be cleaned, I do not want to put anything on it that could harm it.

Bowling balls are generally buffed and polished using a professional machine at your local bowling alley pro shop. This process is safe for most balls however if you wish to be certain contact your local pro shop with information on the age of the ball. Process is mechanical not chemical.

Cleaning a rubber bowling ball is as easy as getting a microfiber towel and some rubbing alcohol. If it hasn't been cleaned since 1973, it's recommended to take it to a pro shop for resurfacing. You can also bake the oil out of a rubber ball by leaving it out in the sun for a few hours.

It could be cleaned using detergents. Soak the ball in the solution of a detergent for 10 minutes and rinse well. Overload of detergent may happen as you soak it for longer time. It would harm the good condition of ball.
