Simple Green diluted 1 to 2 (1 part Simple Green, 2 parts water). Spray on, wait 15 seconds, then wipe with chamois or soft towel. Wipe again with pure water.

Use one part Simple Green to two parts water. Spray the mixture on, and let sit for 15 seconds. Wipe with soft cloth. Wipe again with clean water.

I would use an all purpose mild cleaner like simple green or awesome. Also rubbing alcohol can be used. If the ball isn't too dirty you can use armour-all,which tends to help your ball 'scoot' down the alley. Asfar as using what most everyone has on hand at home window cleaner or the all purpose cleaners.

The proper way to clean a blue heat bowling ball is to wipe it with an isopropyl alcohol to cut the oil from the surface. A microfiber towel is best to be used.a Wipe it in a circular motion to cover the whole surface of the ball.

Use any multipurpose cleaners or glass cleaners to clean your blue heat bowling ball. Simple Green is used quite often. Dilute the Simple Green with one part Simple Green and two parts water. Spray it on, wait for 15 seconds and wipe off the bowling ball with a chamois or soft towel. Then wipe the ball again with clean water.

Using a clean lint-free cloth, stroking with soap, watering and cleaning with wax. I tried these steps once and found them very useful!

The cheapest and arguably the best method is just to use regular rubbing alcohol and a microfiber towel. It will work just as well if not better than any commercial bowling ball cleaner you will find.

A mild detergent mix is the best way to clean a bowling ball. Take two parts warm water with just a bit of detergent. Wipe with a cloth.

Because bowling balls need oil to reduce friction on the lane do not wipe it off with a dry cloth. Instead use a bowling ball sling that has been treated with oil. It will relubricate your ball as well as clean off the residue picked up off the lane. You should do this everytime you bowl a game.

This is incorrect. You want to remove the oil from the coverstock of your ball. Using a ball cleaner immediately after bowling will work best.  add a comment

Try using a commercial ball cleaner or a household cleaner such as simple green or isopropyl alcohol to cut the oil from the surface. Use a microfiber towel and wipe in a circular motion to cover the whole surface of the ball.
