Table Cleaning Edition (7/31/12)
Ok, you've got a pool table and unlike so many others, you use it to shoot pool instead of folding laundry. Like any table that gets the proper amount of play and love, you're starting to notice that it just isn't looking its freshest anymore. There are chalk stains all over the cloth, dog/cat/ferret/rabbit/muskrat hair is all over the place thanks to your beloved pet secretly using it as a bed at night and all that debris is making your balls roll funny. So what's a pool table owner to do?
As always, your loyal pals here at PoolDawg are here to help. This week we're focusing on how to take care of your table and keep it in tip top shape.
Once you're done checking out all the awesome pool table maintenance tools that I'm going to blather on about, treat yourself to a new article from the one and only Samm Diep. This week our favorite Denver Cherry Bomb will be providing ten great tips on how to develop your draw shot. And away we go!

Cue Silk Pool Table Cleaner
When it comes to cleaning your table, there are a couple of different ways to go. Sometimes your table needs an "all over" clean, but other times you just need to spot clean. For that all over clean, the Quick Clean does a great job (unfortunately we're out of stock of it this week). For spot cleaning though, I rely on the Cue Silk Table Cleaner (which we currently do have in stock).
This supremely awesome cleaner sprays a fine mist for even distribution. After spraying, just wipe it down with a towel. It doesn't contain any bleach or phosphates, so it is safe for pretty much any cloth. Be sure to test it on a small area first though, just to be safe.

Do you have difficulty getting your cue ball to draw back to you? Or, when you do finally get backspin on the ball, does it seem to have a mind of its own? If you have trouble with the accuracy and consistency of your draw shots, don’t worry. You’re not alone.
