I clean mine with comet and water in a thin paste form. Pour it in your hand, cup the cork and twist the pole in your hand. Your hand will fit tightly around the cork and do a great job of cleaning. You can also use a toothbrush on it if needed. DO NOT use a wire brush or wheel. It strips the cork off and damages it also. Too many times I have seen it done on ebay and have bought a few. Hope this helps..........

Hi rsgxj6,
I have used piscesman's method many times, and after a rinsing, then set to dry, the handle looks near new.
