I spin my tip sometimes on the floor. No more chalk than dust than me chalking my cue a few times.
I use a paper towel to wipe off the tips before returning the cues to the case. Who knows what's in carpet?

No different than grabbing a window curtain to clean that chalk off. A white curtain will show that your tip is clean now. Be careful the blood doesn't drip on your new sneakers when you get the wake-up call.

Never done it, never will. I also grew up in my dad's pool room, and nobody, and I mean nobody, would even attempt such a thing in front of pops. It would not have ended well. No cigs on the rails, no drinks near the pool table, and no slamming your cues on the table, or dumping the balls out from the ball tray.

But, then again, I also use TIP CLIPZ to put on my tips as I want to keep my JB case from stains. Thus, I don't have to wipe my tips anyways

Where I play, puke, lots of beer, cigarette ash, probably some blood, but mostly chalk-from ppl chalking their sticks.

I've seen it done, even saw a room owner do it with his personal cue. I can't do it though, just doesn't seem right to me.

I saw a dog do this exact thing all the way across a light-colored carpet on a Stanley Steemer carpet cleaner commercial I thought it was one of the most effective ads ever yikes LOL

I hate to see people use the carpet to clean the chalk off tips.
Just the other day I heard Donald Trump say "throw the son's a *****es out of the pool
room"...so my days of using the carpet to clean the chalk off tips while standing are over.

I wonder what those carpet chalkers do when there isn't any carpet.
For instance Table Steaks used to have hardwood floors.

I never saw this practice of wiping chalk off of a pool cue tip until I moved to California. (circa 2003) Still see it done almost daily.

The consequence of this is finally putting the cue tip into a fresh little puddle of beer, soda or coffee and immediately putting the shaft into the case. The next time the case us open feel very fortunate the smell of old leather stench isn't present.

Well, I admit I have been doing this for more than 30 years in every pool room I have been to. Have seen many many people do the same and never heard a word from anyone about it.

I don't try to grind the tip into the carpet, just knock the dust off. I would never do that in someone's house, but in a commercial hall where you pay to play I
Don't really think it's a big deal. If someone ever said anything I
Would certainly quit the habit.

Thanks for the education. Dr S

Agreed for your reason and for respecting others' property.

Here's a way that offers an extra benefit:

Fold a washcloth in half and then thirds. It will fit in the top of your cue case. When closed, it secures your cues from damage and can be used to wipe off the tip when done playing.
