My felt chair casters collect dust

by Esthermatousek
Every time I shop for new casters, all I find are felt tipped. I just put in a wood floor, and I need to protect it.

    Unfortunately felt does collect dust. Felt pads for protection are the best, in my opinion, because unlike a rubber or plastic cover, they are pretty much obscured and not easily noticed. Regular maintenance to remove the collect dust should not be an issue. Cleaning the pads off when you clean your flooring should be fairly easy to do. Good Luck!

    I recently found a post for using leather on the bottom of the legs. Use contact cement to adhere small squares or circles. When dry just cut off the excess. Find it here in Hometalk.

    I cut some tennis balls and put them on the feet of the chair. The felt pads would become not quite so sticky and would come off. I did not want to mark up my floor, so that was my solution.

    A friend of mine made booties for her chair legs with a draw string to hold them in place. When dirty she threw them in the washing machine. These go well in a country kitchen
