No rule that I can find in the PDGA rule book about cleaning. I use dish soap for normal cleaning (at home ). If I get a disc that has been in the ponds at Centennial then I break out the Comet/Ajax and scrub them clean. A little colour fade, but they fly the same and are as clean as a whistle with no stains.

I just cleaned all my putters with comet and they look amazing (to me).

I had white putter that was almost brown with the dirt and now I can't beleive how white it is.

I sound like an info-mercial

I would hesitate to use any kind of abrasive (read, comet) on anything faster than a putter, as it could add wear to the surface and make for some unwanted surprises the next time the disc is thrown.

ken, good advice. In your advice, I wouldn't exclude putters!!!!!

I may have scrubbed a little too hard. Now, my 4 putters are slightly less stable than they were before.

I wouldn't recomend this at all unless you plan on hanging the disc on the wall for good.

Colin,
how far can you throw one of your putters?

never measured, and I am terrible at guessing distnaces.

I throw a putter on 17 blue and yellow. That would be the longest I'd throw it probably.

But, I'm noticing an understableness (is that a word) even when putting.

17 yellow is 70m, or approx. 230'. Coolio. Perhaps I'll start another thread on this subject.

Cheers!
