Quick Clean Chalk Off the same??? - 10-18-2007, 12:27 PM

Anybody watching the US Open might be tempted to try Chalk Off and I'm wondering if that is the same as Quick Clean???

I have used both and they, in my opinion are pretty darn close. So close i cant say one is better than the other but the both, again only my opinion dont work as well as they should.

Yes, they're both equally a waste of money. Seriously, there is nothing better than a vacuum cleaner and if that's too much trouble at the moment, use a brush.

The product is virtually the same. However, the sprayer for Quick Clean is better than Chalk Off's sprayer. Chalk Off also has a mint scent...

These products do indeed make it easier to clean chalk that is near the cloth's surface, thus negating the need for constant vacuuming or brushing. This is a great time saver. It takes about 2 minutes to clean the whole table with these products, vs. about 15 minutes with the brush. Over the course of a week (5 days of playing) thats 10 minutes vs 1 hr and 15 minutes... Over a month's time, thats 40 minutes vs. 5 hours. IMO (and at my billing rate) saving 4 hours is worth 10 bucks.

IMO this keeps your table in top shape between "deep" cleanings. Just spray on and wipe down with a microfiber cloth. Using either of these products does provide a good result - as long as you use it properly and religiously. When you get chalk deep down, you will need to use the trusty brush, or a light suction vacuum without a beater brush. If you have too much suction, you can cause undue wear on your cloth fibers; the same is true for a beater brush.

I typically use Chalk Off each day I play and then vacuum once a week, or every other week. This keeps the felt in great shape without a lot of maintenance. The only reason I use Chalk Off is that I could get it by the case.

I play on my home table about 20 minutes per day and I use Master Blue Chalk... I only clean my table using quick clean once every 2 weeks or so.... I suspect that the chalk particles will not get buried deep in the cloth that quick clean wont pick it up...

I have not tried chalk off, but quick clean is awesome, much better than vacuuming... I do have a kick-ass vacuum though

I just dampen a washcloth with a mix of water and a little rubbing alcohol and lightly run it over the cloth between vacuuming. IMO save your money.
