I bowl once a week on a league and sometimes practice and have been told about cleaning my bowling ball. What approved ball cleaner do you recommend I use to clean my ball? Can you use it before and after league play? I was told to use it only after either league play or practice. Right now I am using Storm reacta clean ball cleaner, but was told to only use this after any league or practice bowling. Will it matter if I use one before and after league and practice or should I just use it after? Also, how do you use a ball cleaner? Is Storm reacta cleaner a good ball cleaner? Is it recommended to wipes your ball each time you throw it?

Is this the best ball cleaner on the market or is there a better one? Which one would you recommend? Can you use it before and after league play or should you just use it after? I was told to use it only after league play and let it sit on the ball until the next time you bowl with it. Should you clean your ball with a towel of oil from the lanes every time you throw it?

There are many ball cleaners on the market.

I use 'Power House' ball cleaner. Avoid buying ball cleaner in a pro-shop, they charge like it's Chanel #5. Buy it by the quart, on the internet, then refill your own smaller spray bottle you keep in your bag. Depending on the brand, $25-$35 per quart.

Here's the latest USBC 'approved' list for cleaners and polishes. It hasn't been update in awhile.

Go to your Pro Shop and read the label on each bottle. If it is on the "approved list" it will say Approved by USBC for use in competition.

Other products may not be used during league or tournaments. But, the approved cleaners may be used anytime; before, after or during competition.
