Using LaGila Golf Wipes

LaGila’s packaging was slender enough to hang on a bag (as LaGila recommends) or stuff in most pockets and it resealed securely after use. The wipes are not overly soaked in cleaning solution, but still have a typical scent for a cleaning product that isn’t overbearing or offensive in any way. As noted by the company, each wipe is double sided, with a textured side that has mildly abrasive fibers and a smooth side that is similar to other cleaning wipes.

Though the merits of using a disposable wipe instead of a towel are best left up to the individual, THP did take the time to test the LaGila wipes to gauge how well they handled commonly encountered messes. Two golf clubs in varying states of uncleanliness and two golf balls, one with grass stains and the other dried mud, were cleaned with a single wipe. The wipe was durable enough to clean all four items, even though the golf clubs did require some effort. Slight tearing occurred on the very last golf club, but the wipe was very much in working order when finished and was then used to clean some light soiling off the face of a hybrid. This indicates they possess the resiliency needed for the job they are designed for.

As seen in the pictures above, the golf clubs were cleaned quite well, with just a small amount of matter left behind in the grooves of the last club. Each club took about the same amount of time to clean as would be expected using a towel and the abrasive side wasn’t so harsh that it damaged even a raw finish. The product certainly worked as advertised in this regard and could be helpful to have if one didn’t have access to or didn’t want to carry a wet towel.

Golf ball cleaning was a mixed bag. Very positive results seen with dirt and overt grass marks, but yellowing and established grass stains were not removed.  Pictures cannot capture the very light yellowing that still remained after cleaning the Callaway ball below, but there was some residual staining, albeit very slight.

The abrasive side again didn’t appear to cause any unwanted scuffing or scratching of the golf ball and using the smooth side quickly swept away any debris that was left behind.

Though convenient, durable, and effective, the one issue that comes to mind with on-course use of the LaGila wipes is conserving them for multiple uses. Whereas one could clean all of his grips at one time with a grip cleaning wipe, on-course conditions dictate that a product like the LaGila wipes could potentially need to be used over a four-hour time span. Therefore, it seems sensible that one would need to place a wipe back inside the packaging after each use to keep it moist and avoid unnecessary waste.

    Seems useful. Are these pretty much the same as gripes or did you see any pros / cons?

  2. #Cookie says:

    Nice job on this one Hawk. I’m a golfer that always has a wet towel on the course and feel lost without it. Given that a towel does the same and I can just wash it I doubt I would use something like this but I think there is a market for it…….just not sure how big that market is.

    Appears to do what it’s intended to without question.

  3. DawgDaddy says:

    WTG Hawk, these do remind me of Gripes but the abrasive side is very interesting, looking forward to the questions and answers in the thread.

  4. Matt Maynard says:

    Great job on the review Hawk! Now I can put some substance behind the emails I’ve received about these from the company.

  5. Drumdog says:

    Thanks for the info. I can clean my clubs and golf balls with my dampened THP towels, so these are not something I would ever buy. But thank you again for the well written review.

  6. OITW says:

    Solid review Hawk. I don’t think these are for me. I use my THP towels and I have a small microfiber one I keep in my back pocket to clean my ball.

    If it needs a deep clean I use the Frogger brush. As for grips, I use Lamkin Gripes to clean those.

    Don’t see myself picking these up.

  7. Freddie Kong says:

    Thanks for sharing Hawk. I fo believe my towels is safe

  8. pdgoblue25 says:

    I think I’ll stick with hot water, a bucket, and one of the 40 old towels I have lying around.

  9. Dean says:

    thanks for the spotlight Hawk. Not sure if it’s something that would make it’s way in to my bag, but I’m sure there is a market for it.

  10. Smallville says:

    The product does as advertised, but I am with many others who use a wet towel to do the same thing. There will be people who will love this and purchase it, but I’ll stick with the wet towel.
