How Do You Get Cat Hair off Pool Table Felt


How Do You Get Cat Hair off Pool Table Felt

How can i get cat hair off my pool table without ruining the felt? The cats just LOVE to lay up there for some reason. I think cats have a thing about being up high, and the billiard table gives them that. I don't want to damage the felt when I try to remove the cat hair.

    Get rid of the cats or put a cover on the table when not in use. I think I would take a soft cloth and dampen it and then slowly try to clean the felt. Maybe a pet store has some spray that you can use on the rails that will discourage the cats from jumping up there.

    I'll second the use of a pool table cover. We all know you can't change a cat's habits, but you can protect your investment with a $40 cover!

    Thanks for all of the input, no matter how sarcastic it was...

    Get rid of the cat

    Since getting rid of the cats is absolutely out of the question, I've decided to invest in a pool table cover. It's something that I should have purchased when I bought the table. Of course.

    To get the previous cat hair off of the pool table cloth, I bought a few of those lint rollers you get at the dollar stores. You know the ones that really aren't even powerful enough for lint and that is why they sell them at the dollar store? That way I Wont damage the cloth at all. Once that's done, the cover goes on meticulously after every session.

    Of course getting rid of the cats is out of the question. Lighten up a little. How do the lint rollers work. The idea may be worth putting in the table maintenance section.

    The least expensive lint roller is duct tape--just dont press it down onto the felt, just let it cling natrually and then pull it back off.

    Masking tape works too--it's not as strong or sticky as duct tape (there are lint rollers that are basically sheets of masking tape). My guess is that you could train the cats with a spray bottle with tap water in it. Spray towards the cat anytime it gets near and/or on the table. It will learn quickly...

    New table. Have a dog and a cat. Have table cover which is always on, but animal hair is still there(black felt). Used a lint roller once but had a lot of felt on the roller, used 4 sheets for a 9 by 5 table. Is that because it is new or does it damage the felt. Any other suggestions.

    I just use the vacuum with the upholstery attachment. Takes the hair and dust and extra chalk right away.

    I'm guessing you have a problem with static electricity perhaps coming from the table or the cover.

    I use bounce fabric sheets on my glass T.V. stand and then dust. It cuts down dust collection dramatically.

    I also use it on the bathroom doors and cabinets to prevent blow dried hairs from collecting.

    Just a thought.

    For cleaning cat hair off the pool table; no lint rollers, no tape. Repeated use will slowly cause damage to the felt. Go to Walmart and buy a pair of those yellow or blue long rubber kitchen gloves. Put them on and just rub your hand over the felt. The cat hair will stick to the gloves.
