I'm using Taibolo and Fly Diabolo from Taiwan. May i know what kind of chemical should i use to clean these type of diabolos?
Some of you said that acetone works pretty well for diabolos' cup. But i heard that acetone would have some chemical react with rubber. Will that be unbalance?

looks good greg!
I dont know about Tiabolo, but id just use terpentine on the flys, it worked for my circus' and yohos.Or you could just test what ever chemical you have, so just clean a small part of the cup and watch to see if it melts haha, dilute with water if it does. Maybe some else might be better answering this question haha

I just use warm water and a dishbrush to clean my finesse. No chemicals needed  ;)

Unscrew them first so you are just washing the cups, or they will

Tom, that post made no sense at all.  Please stop posting gibberish.  Read your posts back to yourself before you click 'post'.

Just remember to use commas Tom, makes it easier to understand.
We need a mum on this forum, one of those clean freak ones. I wonder how long it will be until someone releases a 'diabolo cleaning kit'?

I think that is a great idea. If only some company like Henry's could release something to clean their diabolos. They made them, they should know how to clean them, right?  ::) I guess that scouring pads and water will have to do for now (scuffs white Circus again  :-\).
If Diaboloing was easy then everyone would be doing it.

Again, merged your thread into an existing one, Cereal. But do remember to use the search bar first from now on.

Have a look at the first posts in this thread for some ideas. Get ready to do some major scrubbing.

But, to make things clear, what type of Mr. Babasche diabolo do you have - there are several varieties ;). I believe most of the advice is for Henrys Circuses and Finesse diabolos.
