I had this problem for a few years on some grips. Some grips get really sticky and make your hands sticky after and its disgusting. Is there a way to fix it? I usually put body powder onto my grips. But its only temporary for like a day or two.

Lololol. Its not my hands. Well I hope not. Because my duos doesn't make them sticky but these fit tech do. Maybe its because they're new. I remember a long long long time ago when fit dak grips were out. Those were the stickiest grossest things in the world.

Try to put some water over them and dry them with a cloth or something.

I'd say wear gloves or get used to the feel of sticky grips.

When my grips get sticky I take a bowl of soapy water and an old toothbrush and I scrub my grips till they're clean

1st, what grips are you talking about? 2nd, HONESTLY, try different grips.

You may love the grips initially but OBVIOUSLY, you don't after they get shitty. It sounds like a manufacturing/material issue.

If you bought a car that you loved initially but then you hated that it wasn't the quality you had hoped, would you keep buying that car in the future if nothing changed?

WELL F*!K!!! THis is the oldest F-ING THREAD!

P.S. That's some funny shit BcBMX80

No it’s 2019, and I personally love sticky grips and came to this thread to find ways to make the grips even more sticky. The feeling of better grip on your grips is a good thing how could OP find it disgusting?
