Callaway golf clubs are high-end clubs that are often used by people in the business world. Just because the clubs are expensive doesn't mean they aren't delicate, so you need to be careful when cleaning them. The best thing to do is wash them after each use. If you don't have the time, do so at least every three or four uses. Not only will it keep your club ready to go, but it also will help keep your golf bag tidy.

Instructions

Mix a solution for cleaning your clubs in a metal pot. Add three cups of lukewarm water and a half teaspoon of liquid dish soap. Stir the mixture with a teaspoon. Put the heads of your golf clubs in the pot and make sure they are covered. If not, add more water. You should not need to add soap. Lean the clubs against the wall or hold them upright so the ferrules, which are the black, white or silver necks that attach the head to the shaft, don't get wet.

Let the heads soak for five minutes. Then use a toothpick or wooden golf tee to get any still stuck-on debris out of tight spaces, such as between the letters of the Callaway logo. If there is any debris on the flat surfaces of the club, scrub it off with a soft-bristled toothbrush.

Rinse the heads using the sink tap or by wiping them with a damp cotton cloth. Be careful, again, that the ferrules stay dry.

Clean the shafts and grips of your clubs using commercial club wipes or a cotton cloth soaked in glass cleaner, such as Windex. Wring the cloth out before use if it is dripping. Many Callaway clubs have very thin shafts, so wrap the cloths around them tightly and simply slide them up and down. Be careful to move straight up and down so you don't cause the metal of the club to bend even slightly. You don't want to throw off your swing.

Let the clubs air dry by setting them in the sun for five to 10 minutes. Never put them back in your golf bag while they are still wet.
