A snooker cue is like any other piece of sports equipment: It needs tender loving care (TLC).

As the old saying goes, look after your tools and your tools will look after you. If you watch the top pros on TV, they always have a towel with them and are wiping it down. Three things to remember!

  • Carry a towel around with you at all times on your sessions.
  • Always wipe your cue down before playing and after. That’s to avoid the sweat of your hands and other factors in the playing conditions.
  • Never lean a cue up against a wall for a long period, and, always put it in your case after playing.

3 Top Tips for Cleaning Your Snooker Cue

Here’s SnookerZone’s 3 top tips for looking after your snooker cue for cleaning. Any of these three methods of cleaning will do!  They may seem obvious and basic, but they are the cornerstone of a healthy piece of wood. And, after all, buying another snooker cue can be an expensive business, unless you’re into collecting cues, which is another article for another time…

1)     Wipes

Wood is a material that can dry out, is prone to rotting, and can also discolour if not kept in prime condition.Also, when you’re playing in snooker clubs, it’s amazing how much grubbiness you can pick up – dirt, grime, and, well, anything! The simple way to clean is to buy wipes – either ordinary ones or wood wipes (you can get them from any supermarket) and simply wipe down the cue. You will be amazed at how much grime comes off. Do this after every session you play!

2)     Cue Wax – Buff and Shine

You can buy this from any snooker store online, and it’s basically to keep the wood looking tip top. Simply put a small amount onto a dry cloth and then apply the wax evenly and then leave it to set a little and then with a cloth – wipe it down. You should see a shine on the cue once it’s applied!

3)     Pledge Polish

Yes, furniture polish! Just spray a little along the cue and then wipe like you would a piece of furniture! Simple, but effective.

Brass ferrule

If you haven’t already switched to a revolutionary Century Titanium ferrule yet (see our review by clicking here), you may well need to polish your ferrules. For this, you can use something like Brasso and you will be amazed at how much rubbish comes off a ferrule! You aren’t able to get rid of Scratches easily, but, for simply removing dirt and grime off a ferrule, then Brasso or a stainless steel polish is OK if you’ve got a stainless steel or brass ferrule. Also, you can use wirewool to quickly get rid of mess on the ferrule and just to make it less grubby!

Keep doing these cleaning tips regularly, and your cue will last a lifetime!

Enjoy your snooker!
