We all know tacky rubbers are dust magnets, however, we only know that we can alluviate the symptoms by cleaning.

However I have a solution to this.

I spray 1-2 sprays of toners (Face toners) to rubber. (Alcohol free toners)

Then I wipe until all dust gone.

Result is rubber become "dust resistant"

Effect lasts forever (until you wipe it/hit balls enough and it starts becoming a dust magnet again)

As I know, I have tried 2 brands of such toners and all worked same.

This doesn't increase speed or spin but your rubber is definitely spinnier when it is clean.

I would have thought that the tacky surface that grips the ball so well, is the same one that makes the dust stick to the surface. If you remove it, I would expect that it would grip the ball less as well. Of course that's hard to measure.

I seem to forgot to add details, dust still sticks to rubber, but -80% amount than not using it.

As for tackiness, I find my Jupiter II has not reduced in tackiness, however I know very well Jupiter II is not super tacky.

With the following rubbers I use this :
YINHE Mercury II
YINHE Mercury III Euro
YINHE Venus III
YINHE Earth I
YINHE Earth II
YINHE 9000D
YINHE 9000E
YINHE Moon

The tackiness hasn't reduced at all, maybe because the rubbers weren't super tacky in the beginning.

I probably need a DHS rubber to try this [SMILING FACE WITH OPEN MOUTH AND SMILING EYES]

Nowadays, I feel, that with tacky rubbers, humidity is bigger issue than dust...

By "face toners", do you mean cosmetics? :lol: Maybe you should post a couple of pictures of the containers...

CLEANING THE PLAYGROUND CAREFULLY IS THE KEY.

Dusty floorings is an utter desperation with tacky rubbers. The dusty imprints will stay on the rubber tacky surface forever.. YOU HAVE A KIND OF ANTI AFTER A WHILE.
THE outward micro_layer of raw cautchuque is known to cause topsheet to gather scurf and dust a lot. DHS H3 rubbers the tacky outward layer will go away with time, while the Double Fish rubbers remaining tacky indefinately long.

Be happy.
