Hand or machine wash in cold water with mild detergent.
5.  Twilight Tracer Light-Up Golf Ball

Just because the sun goes down doesn't mean you have to stop swinging. The Twilight Tracer Light-Up Golf Ball from Sun Products is a "a regulation golf ball with an inner core that contains proprietary circuitry, a lithium battery, and two red LED lights that are programmed to flash at a rate of 7.2 flashes per second." The ball is also motion activated, so once you swing at it, it will stay lit for about five to six minutes until you find it in the dark. Choose from the 1 pack ($13.95), 3 pack ($27.95), or 9 pack ($69.95) of Light-Up Golf Balls.
