Default How anal are you about your equiptment?

Idk if its just me but I cant stand a complete dirty bag. At the end of each week I take all my disc out, take the vaccume hose to my bag and wipe it down with a wet cloth. Then wash all my towels and wipe down my disc. Just curious if anyone else is like this or what is your weekly, daily, montly or yearly cleaning routine.

*raises hand*
I bought a slop sink so I could wash my discs in something other than the kitchen/bathroom sinks.
Well, to be honest I bought it for dg discs and for developing photos. But still, DG was at least 50% of the reason.

Don't forget to wash your DG towels, fold them neatly, and put them into the stack in the Sterilite container labeled for disc golf towels. The towel container is on top of the stack of Sterilites with Rocs and Comets. The Sterilite with the minis is on top of the stack of Sterilites with assorted midranges. Etc, ad nauseum. I think you see where this is going...

Every throw: casually knock the loose dirt clumps or mud off the disc before replacing it in the bag.

Every week on laundry day: wash and dry any dirty DG towels with the usual laundry. Towels are folded up in a little pile in my "disc golf stuff" area.

After an unusually muddy or soggy round: wash the muddy discs in the kitchen sink with warm water and a sponge, no soap. Empty the bag and shake it upside-down to get the dirt and grass out of it.

Every six months or so: Empty out the bag and hose it off in the shower, using the hand-held sprayer.

My spouse, on the other hand, washes all of her discs with hot soapy water in the kitchen sink about once a month, spreads them all out on a towel on the kitchen table to dry, then snaps some photos of them and posts them to her brand's Facebook fan page. . . XD

I wash my bag monthly and discs every other week. I keep it simple. I let the discs soak in soapy warm water for about an hour then rinse them and then air dry in the dish rack.

I usually only clean out my bag after a rainy tournament round...

I don't think I've ever cleaned my bag or washed my discs.

I'll throw my towels in the laundry once every few months.

I wash my discs often, I can't stand gritty, muddy or greasy feeling discs. The bag? not so much, that I don't seem to give a hoot about. Dump it upside down once in a while to knock out the grass and twigs.

Sounds about right.

Discs don't seem to mind and my bag has yet to complain.
