Not only what @UnknownCuber said, but sometimes I'd take apart all the pieces and leave them soaking (except the core) in dish soap and warm water overnight. And these are with my stickered cubes. Although I only do this if I don't have the time to clean everything right away.

For the most part, if you've got a microfiber cloth, just wiping all the pieces clean should be pretty good enough.
Can I not wash the core?

Hey, I bought a valk 3 2 months ago . It works fine but has developed a whitish powder in between pieces . I was wondering how to clean it? I can't afford a lube , so cleaning and then using it without lube will damage the cube or not ?
PS:- recently it has started lagging and it just is not as smooth as it was

I don't think using a cube without lube can damage it. That sort of residue is very normal once you use cubes for a long time (with or without lube). If you clean it out with a paper towel, it should be good as new (although it might have a dry feel due to a lack of lube).

Where can I find a good video on how to reassemble my valk 3 ? I seem to have problem breaking it in

How can I make an overlubed Gan SM lose the lubricant? I accidentally lubed it with DNM 37 and its been way to fast and slimy

Hi, I'm wondering if anyone has had the issue that happens with maru lube (
)
the lube sounds great though.
obviously, lubricants generally do not last forever and there is likely to be some residue but I would recommend that you just use DNM-37 unless you want to invest in angstrom lubes (they make your cube much better but require you to still use DNM-37 regularly)

Haven't picked up cubing in years. Wanna get back into it, have too much free time on my hands. Last time I lubed any of my cubes was probably back in early 2018 or late 2017 because, I was bored and had nothing to do. Should I relube my cube?
