Foosball Table Cleaning, Lubricating, Maintenance and Care
How do you care for a foosball table? Proper foosball table cleaning and lubricating maintenance can greatly extend the life of a foosball table as well as the enjoyment of playing foosball. Good maintenance starts with cleaning the foosball table with a good cleaner. Clean the inside and outside of the table with a mild detergent and water or a mix of alcohol and water with a soft cloth rag to remove dirt, grease and grime. Be careful not to get the play field too wet or you can damage it. Use just a damp cloth. For really dirty play field and rods, We like to use CP100 pinball play field cleaner to dissolve old dried oil and lubricant. Use a clean rag dampened with the CP100 cleaner everywhere there is left over grease and dirt. Use of a foosball table cover when the table is not in use can protect the table from dust and moisture and is a recommended accessory.
Wipe the old lubricant and dirt off the rods on a regular schedule and re-lubricate with a silicone base foosball rod oil. You can use CP100 degreaser to aid in the removal of this dried dirt and grease. Then use a light coat of silicone base foosball rod lubricant when re oiling the rods. You can use a spray or a bottle silicone lubricant but do not get lubricant on the play field, balls or handles. We like to saturate a clean cloth with this oil and oil each rod end from this cloth. Add lubricant to the cloth as needed. Also remember to wipe lubricant on the inside spaces of the rod between the men to keep them shiny and rust free.
Now is the time to clean each ball. We use a detergent and brush to scrub these balls. On tornado and other rough surfaced balls, try not to scrub so harshly as to remove this surface as it can make the balls too slippery. Some people prefer to tie the balls inside a sock or cloth sack and run them through a cycle in the washing machine. Wash them with whites so they won't change colors. Use which ever way you prefer and let them air dry. Replace any damaged or bad balls.
Foosball handles should not be coated with anything and left natural. Just clean with a damp cloth with detergent and water and let dry as you did the play field. Check for damaged or loose men, bumpers, handles and stops and replace or tighten as required. Keeping everything tight and in place will ensure hard hitting and accurate play.
