I recently tried Purple Power, a $6 per gallon degreaser purchased at Walmart or Home Depot, to experiment with on a few old balls. I sanded a Rotogrip Unhinged and a Rotogrip Shout (both oil soaked and ready for the dumpster) with 200 grit paper, then let them soak in a bucket of full strength Purple Power for 24 hours. I let it dry for a day, then refinished with 600, 2000, and polished on a spinner. The Shout, a solid, reacts like it did when it was brand new. The Unhinged, a pearl, worked fine for 5 frames, then ended up in the dumpster.

Has anyone else tried Purple Power? I also use it to clean older balls after each session. Soaking a ball discolors it slightly giving it a chalky look, sanding brings the color back. Purple Power is also hard on the hands, wearing gloves recommended.
