i use water to clean my rubbers every time i use it. sometimes a bit of it get onto my blade would the water affect my blade.
also i read somewhere that rubber cleaners make rubbers not as tacky and water makes my rubber tackier, but one of the people at my club said that rubber cleaners makes my rubber tackier. which is true ?
Water is fine for cleaning your bat. As long as you are not leaving the water on the blade for too long it will be OK. Just use a damp sponge to wipe down the rubber.
Rubber cleaners are OK and will make your rubber tacky but water is cheaper and just as effective. You may want to use a rubber cleaner rarely just to get the extra oils or dirt off.
