I've always been curious if anyone has tried a carpet steam cleaner with an upholstery attatchments to clean their cloth. They don't have a lot of water pressure and you can use whatever temp water you want. The vac should extract most of the water maybe leaving it damp. Seems like it would work...

Damp cloth tends to dry hard....doesnít play well.
...and moisture around the cushions is not a good thing.

If pool players had to have knowledge of geometry and physics before talking about geometry and physics, all of the aiming threads would disappear.

This is what I use. Cut the hole with a hole saw. The little vacuum in one hand and the brush in the other. Really removes the dust instead of just smearing it around.

Then I wipe it down with a hot damp cloth with some woolite in the water.

Curious if you have tried this? I wouldn't do the rails with it. As far as leaving the cloth hard, I haven't noticed that after cleaning with a very wet towel, even if it did stiffen up a little it would soften up after using it a little just like wearing clothes that hung out on the clothesline.

Our best billiard mechanic in the 70s tried spraying a cloth before he installed it...
...on the theory that it would dry tighter.....said it didnít play right.

And cleaning with a damp cloth will affect the rails....
..and turns loose chalk under the cloth to mud.

Vacuum is the best

seems like if you vacuum first it would remove the loose chalk under and on the cloth, leaving the chalk and dirt that is embedded in the cloth. I was hoping someone has actually tried this. Guess I'll have to experiment on some old cloth that I have. Might be a while I have to borrow a carpet cleaner with an upholstery attatchment. I'll post the results when done.

Great idea. Cheap, home-made and effective.

I do exactly the same thing on my 10' Gabriels billiard table. The idea came from a thread on onepocket.org where a guy showed how to remove the drive band and rotating brush. Works great.

This is what I use and works for me. And I would agree with what others have said here. Too much suction and rotary brushes could be harmful to the cloth.
