cleaning stage balls =/

so i have a few stage balls, 1 white 3'' old dube, and then a few 100mm
Babaches ( greatest ball for body rolling ever) any ways, my white stage
ball is stained like none other. the only thing i can get off of it is the
paint that it picks up from the walls. then it has a bunch of random brown
and odd green stains. i cant get any of these out. then my blue babache
has a bunch of scuff marks that dont seem to come out, and a very tiny
brown stain.

any idea how to get these out? ive heard that putting your stage balls in
the washing machine work well, but i have idea how to do it.

It's pretty much as simple as opening the lid and putting them in with the
rest of your washing. At least, that's worked for me in the past. I'm
not sure about you, but my washing machine doesn't have a 'Juggling Props'
setting.

Mine neither, piece of cheap rubbish.

But I feel quite weary about that. Does anybody who lives in a 40 degree
country know what happens to stage balls at that temperature? Somehow I
feel the inside of the washing machine would be some awful colours after
you'd finished, and possibly with a few more dents. But an interesting
idea. I put one of my cloth beanbags in the washing machine (filled with
millet) and it came out spanking white and smelt lovely. But I don't
think it's done the inside much good. The lining might have protected it
though.

What's wrong with just a sofa, the TV, a cloth, some water and some
Cif/Jif cleaner?

Im interested in this also. I found out last night that my 5 white dube
stage balls that were crushed under my car seat into the shape of eggs
had regained there shape over the course of a few months. I had
discarded them into storage thinking they were permanently ruined. A
nice suprise indeed. However they also have suffered tons of scuffs and
stains.

Im the adventurous non-caring type so maybe I'll try washing them with
some clothes.

Anyone have any horror stories of balls melding with their jeans?

I dont have stageballs but When I clean my balls I typically take a paper
towel dampen it and then rub it over the ball I used this method on my
beanbags which aquired something sticky on them from being in my back pack
although I think the rubber base on the balls would be better for water
contact since it shouldn't absorb the water as beanbags will.
