New Lamkin Cleaning Wipes Offer Convenient Solution for Keeping Grips Clean and Tacky

SAN DIEGO, Calif., October 30, 2012 – With the recent explosion of white and color golf grips, the issue of grip cleaning and maintenance has become a hot topic.  A common complaint from golfers involves the difficulties associated with keeping their light-colored grips looking good.   After hearing the question ‘how do I keep my grips clean?’ hundreds of times, Lamkin has created GRIPES™ Grip Cleaning Wipes to make golf grip cleaning easier, faster and much more convenient.

“I’ve been talking about the benefits of proper grip cleaning and maintenance for years, but the subject became much more relevant with the widespread acceptance and use of white and color golf grips.” said Bob Lamkin, President and CEO.  “Other than keeping your grips looking great, regular cleaning actually reactivates surface tack and enhances the overall durability of the grip.”

The new GRIPES Grip Cleaning Wipes (SRP $5.99) were specifically designed for cleaning golf grips and feature a large 7”x9” surface size, a specially-formulated quick-drying cleaning solution and a convenient re-sealable pack.  Each cleaning wipe thoroughly cleans up to five golf club grips, and each pack includes 15 cleaning wipes.   The cleaning wipes were developed for use on rubber and synthetic rubber grips and are safe to use on all Lamkin grip materials, including the 3GEN and new ACE 3GEN compounds.

Bob Lamkin adds, “While GRIPES Grip Cleaning Wipes are a great way to keep white and color grips looking like new, I’m hopeful golfers using traditional black grips will also use the cleaning wipes to keep their grips FEELING like new.  The difference in surface feel between a dirty grip and clean grip is really remarkable.”

GRIPES Grip Cleaning Wipes, along with Lamkin’s 2013 golf grip collection, will be available through golf specialty, online retailers and green grass shops beginning in November 2012.  For more information about Lamkin Grips,
