Okay I do wash discs from time to time if they need it, Impact due to the rim when needed, then the rare disc where I am using putters in the same color, I like a more beat in disc of same model for longer putts.

During mud season, they get washed pretty much after every round.

During the summer, maybe once a month, just to get the tack back on some and the sweat off the others.

I wash my premium plastic discs.
I take sand paper and lighters to the baselines and i leave the grit on them.

I heard if you eat poison ivy you become immune to it.

I heard you don’t even have to eat it. You can just rub it on your face. Especially around your eyes, nose, and mouth.

Add some nettles, and night shade, and you have a nice salad.

My neighbor when I was kid, nice older lady, was absent mindedly chewing on a stalk of “grass” while talking to my mom that turned out to be poison ivy. That rash inside your mouth and down your throat... no bueno. Required a hospital stay IIRC.

I find it SUPER satisfying, therapeutic, and relaxing to wash my discs. Typically I run a hot shallow bath and put all of my discs in to soak. Then one at a time I remove and wipe them down. Sometimes they need a wipe and a second soak if they're particularly gross. White discs always amaze me with how much grime comes off, I feel like I throw them better after a good clean.
Then I organize them by flight and put them back in my bag. Sometimes I'll take some out and replace discs I haven't been throwing.
