I play in my basement and my rubbers become really dirty after about fifteen minutes. I clean my rubbers probably 3-5 times a day (with water and sponge), will this shorten the life of the rubbers? If so, how often should I replace them?

Hi Ryan,

It is best to clean the rubber whenever you see they are dirty.  Rubbers will wear out more if you play with them dirty.

Rubbers tend to last around 100 hours as a guide.

Does the continual cleaning of them damage them?

If you use a soft cloth or sponge and water it won't damage them.
