Hey, don't diss the Shat or you'll have to listen to this...



Note that I'm a big Lou Reed and Velvet Underground fan, but I've never been able to make it through more than a couple minutes of Metal Machine Music, let alone four sides of a two record vinyl album.

And while I'm on the topic of the Shat and vinyl we had at my college radio station...



This was on a vinyl album that was distributed to radio stationswith public service announcements that were designed to be transferred to tape cartridges for airplay.

I've used those in addition to the items mentioned in my first post. The mitt actually works quite well, but the brush and pumice stone work substantially better and are of no additional cost.

Does the pumice stone wear away at the fabric; as if sanding the fabric away?

No, it is very gentle, you just use it to brush up the hair like you would use the mit, you don't apply an enormous amount of pressure. This is a longstanding detail trick used by many pro detailers.

I use a kitchen scrub brush with stiffer bristles - rub circles in the carpet and the hair will all come up.
