  • Slippery pole at home

    Posted by hipshaker on September 26, 2009 at 10:36 am

    My x-pole at home is really slippery, even though I clean and wipe it regularly with towel. The x-pole at work isn’t half as slippery… struggling to do the cross ankle release at home as I keep slipping down

    Any advice?

    (this subject has probably already been covered, but help still appreciated!)

    that’s one of the topics that covered it. There were quite a few a while back. It also has a link to Veena’s article bout tempermental poles.

    My pole is super slippery when the air’s on. Since I don’t have control of the air, I’ve tried everything. Best so far is Method’s Best in Glass window cleaner. Better for you then Windex AND mint scented. Mmmmmmmm. Minty Pole.

    If it’s humid and the air is off then I just use plain Rubbing Alcohol.

    hipshaker, I have the exact same problem!!! I can do loads on the poles in the studio and when I try to do it at home I fail! I think it might be that there’s more space in the studio or something! It drives me crazy anyway thats all I know!
