    Wrap PVC electricianís tape around the handle give it a good rub so it sticks well and leave it for about 30 minutes. Remove the tape and you have a nice clean handle. I have only tried this on Cork handles so be careful with the Neoprene.

    As Eddie says, hot soapy water & nail brush.
    A small amount of kitchen scouring powder for stubborn marks may help.

    Rinse and allow to thoroughly dry.

    Yes, agree and a little bleach on stained cork. Trick is, don't let groundbait set like concrete on them to begin with.

    That was the problem, and Irish groudbait seems worse than normal. Thanks lads shall try all of them.

    I've never bothered to clean a handle in my life.

    A mucky handle gives the rod character, and you can look back at the various stains that were unique to particular successful days fishing.

    Ron says "I've never bothered to clean a handle in my life."

    Then you obviously don't have a sister-in-law like mine. I needed to borrow a carp rod from her the other week and I had to spend 1/2 hour scrubbing 1000's of mackerel scales off it.

    To be fair though, she only uses it for mackerel fishing anyway.

    Hope you don't have the same policy with your underpants Ron!
