Best Way to Clean Simonis? - 04-28-2017, 08:47 AM

I'd like to hear some different opinions on this subject. I have Simonis 860HR in green and use the blue chalk. I purchased the Simonis X thing that was supposed to pick up the chalk but found it to be pretty much worthless. I have been using a high quality microfiber towel just a little damp and going over the cloth but I worry about water and wool. I don't brush anymore but do vacuum often. Still after an hour of play, my bridge hand is dirty with chalk just like the pool hall.

Using the Simonois X-1, will help a lot with this problem, Also, using the GRUNG with the misting cleaner from the can will help with this also.

So, if you clean, vacuum and X-1 and then the Felt cleaner and finally the grung to clear off, this is the best you are going to do to keep all chalk residue off the cloth.

Hope this helps a bit,

Thanks, I didn't think too much of the X-1 so sold it. Had not heard of the GRUNG so will order some.

I vacuum once a week and I use the X1 every morning and I find it works extremely well. I clean the X1 with the vacuum and is good to go for another week. I think it works very well and I wouldn't be without it. I take it when we play league as some tables are in desperate need of cleaning.

I use a lint roller, about 8Ē wide. It picks up all the pieces of lint that accumulate. Super fast, and donít need to drag the vacuum out for in-between cleanings.

I too think the x3 is mostly useless. I still use it, but I think only because I spent $80 on it. Ha ha.

I've learned; Woolite (cleans wool) and hot water on a fiber towel. For ball cleaner I use Meguiar's car polish instead of the ball cleaners. The ball cleaners form a line on the rail cushions.

Vacuum, woolite and hot water. Also brush the rails and the table next to them before vacuum.

I vaccum, brush with a special rail and three brush under ril brush, then regular brush, finally I go over with the X-1. n occasion, I start with the x 1 and finish with it. It works very well
