Person B: You may not play it at all or very rarely. Your carrom will certainly going to be damaged no matter if you’re a person A or B.

Instead, a better idea is to play it in moderation. Playing twice or thrice a week is pretty good.

4. Use One of These 3 Strategies

Note: Before applying any of these 3 strategies make sure you go thought the tips and warning sections below. Also, you don’t have to pick all of these strategies. Go for the one which you think will going to work best for you.

4.1. Spray Vinegar and Water Combined

Pomegranate Vinegar

Take an empty spray bottle and fill it up with half the vinegar and half the water.

Spray it all over the carrom. Make sure the carrom pockets are already opened before you spray.

Once you’re done spraying. Take a dry cloth and wipe until the solution is all soaked and the surface becomes dry.

Vinegar is known to have the tendency of cleaning plastic materials as they are a bit acidic in nature.

4.2. Cleaning with the Bleach

Cleaning with the Bleach

Take a small tub and fill it up with 1 cup of bleach. Make sure you wear the safety cloths before continuing with this process.

Take a piece of a dry cloth, soak it in a little bit of the bleach solution which you just poured in a tub and rub gently all over the carrom.

4.3. Taking Advantage of the Baking Soda

Baking Soda

Mix 3 tablespoons of baking soda with 1 tablespoon of water and mix it well to make a thick solution.

Apply with your unused toothbrush on your plastic carrom board and let it stick on it for at least 30 minutes. That way, the baking soda will loosen the dust particles on the plastic.

Take a kitchen cleaning foam to clean the carrom surface. It’s important to use the foam so you can easily pick backing soda powder from the surface of the carrom otherwise it will be tough for you if you use just a piece of cloth.

5. A Few Things to Consider Before Applying Anything Practically

  • If you aren’t sure that you improved the cleanliness of your carrom after applying any of the strategies stated above you may have to try another one. This is the only way to find what works for you.
  • Make sure you don’t get bleach on your hands and cloths while pouring it in a tub.
  • Vinegar doesn’t smell good. The good idea is to combine it with the essential oil like lavender or citrus.

 6. A Little Warning
