Remove the tape from the ball and set it, holes down, in a place to dry. This is especially important if you didn't cover the holes. If you did cover the holes, the ball is probably ready to be used immediately following, but letting it rest won't hurt.

Next time you take to the lanes, the ball should be gripping noticeably better. If it isn't, the ball may be at the end of its life.
