Storing Your Sparkleballs

With a little January love your sparkleball will last longer. (Guy’s sparkleball lasted 27 years.)  Whether you plan to store it till next Christmas or leave it up year-round, here’s a good routine.

  •  Loosen gunk in the cups with a dry paintbrush.
  •  Blast out any debris with a shopvac blower.  Or  compressed-gas duster.  Finish with a wipe  of windex.
  •  Mend loose cups.
  •  If storing, make sure sparkleball is dry then cover with a drycleaning bag or trash bag.
  •  Hang out of the way, from garage or closet ceiling.

I’m also happy to say, that if you do nothing, your sparkleball, like a good dog,  will still live a very long time and give joy no matter how dirty it is.  Please share below, if you have any storage or cleaning tips. :)
