Is there someone who does this or a product you can buy? I have a heap of used balls still in good condition. It's just they don't clean up that well. Would be great to give them a fresh white coat

I would think adding any layer of paint or tint to a ball would change its flight and preformance. Also with news ball so cheap now why bother?

What about an abrasive cleaner like Jiff and some fine steel wool

If a ball needs to be painted then no way is it in 'good condition'.

Structurally it's good, ie. no cuts.

What a crazy idea. And who cuts balls? I'm a hack and I haven't cut one in 10 years. It must be nigh on impossible now. Just use them to practice etc.

I can still remember as a kid watching my mum stick pins attached to string into golf balls and then dipping the ball into a tin of white paint. I'm talking 50 odd years ago when balls were probably a bit scarce and expensive. Thinking about it, one can only imagine how the ball would have been after drying with more paint on one side than the other. And I never did know what they did about identification. I've washed used balls before in a tub of hot water and bleach, but when you can buy AA's from Squizzys for less than $1 a ball it hardly seems worth it.

I have some broken tees you can glue together and use with them if you are interested.

Speak to your girlfriend or wife about ball cleaning.....they know all the tricks and none of them have tampered with my performance characteristics......on the contrary you may see performance gains

I remember my old man painted his practice balls on one half only so he knew which ones were his. Took him about an hour of hitting them and wondering why they were curving 3 different ways in the air to realize he just ruined about 100 golf balls!

You can use an acid dye like RIT to dye them. I dye my practice balls blue after noticing a good quarter of my shag bag balls had been nicked on the practice chipping area.
