My towel almost always takes care of anything the course can do to my Discs right there on the spot. A few holes are near some muck here. It's rare when I even need to do that. Yesterday I let a friend use my towel to clean some muck off a putter that went too aggressively past a basket at Vicksburg Recreation Area on #10, for example. I have washed some of my Discs in the sink once or twice over the years, so I chose "Once in a blue moon."

The oil (not juice) from poison ivy or poison oak is present throughout the lifespan of these plants.

The "ripeness" of these plants is not an indicator of their ability to transfer the oil to another surface.

Casey, if you wish to dispense medical advice, please spend the couple moments to at least consult the Google.
I said the wrong thing, I forgot the correct name for it at the time Oil.

The other part of the Poison Oak is true but the oils affect me most when the leaves of the Poison Oak are Turing a red/brown color with the green still on them.

I am at myself not you ru4por.

Casey, the issue isn't that you made "an" errant post, or misspoke. It's that you have a consistent, well-established pattern of doing so.

We're all human and make mistakes from time to time, but the frequency with which you post inaccurate statements is remarkable.

If you want to help anyone who reads your posts...

Spend more time researching your facts, and less rambling from one incoherent thought to the next.

I live in the Northwest and prefer to do the majority of my playing in the winter. So they get plenty wet and the towel cleans everything off. Good to go.

I wash my discs when I play rainy rounds.


So in other words, almost never.

Don't listen to these haters, Casey. They're a bunch of disc washers anyway.

DFW has the slimmyist black clay. It's fine if it's dry and even if it's just damp. If it gets saturated, it's slick and gets on everything. If I notice it's becoming one with my discs, they get a bath. If not, the morning dew can make the discs slippery all over again on the next round. Otherwise... no.
