When used on bowling balls with a polished finish, Power Gel® Scuff will increase surface friction and improve hooking power. The scouring compound also doubles as an oil absorber - apply it to the ball surface and allow it to dry to a powder. As it dries, lane oil is lifted from the pores of the cover stock and captured. When the material is completely dry, just brush or vacuum it from the ball surface. Ball cleaner and scouring compound in one formulation.
I have bought this product multiple times to use on mine and my childrens bowling balls. This product really brings the oil out of the bowling ball. highly recommend.
