    First, turn your rolling desk chair upside down. You must be able to access the wheels of the chair and they should be visible to you. It is preferable that you bring a basket in close vicinity. It will help you in avoiding any mess around the cleaning area. Moreover, it will be quite easy and convenient for you to put things down in a basket.

    Check for the bulk hair stuck around the wheels. They mostly have a tight grip around the wheels and it is extremely hard to pull them out. Therefore, grab hold of a razor blade and start cutting any threads or hair. Cut slowly because there is a high possibility that if you apply force, you might damage the plastic area. Just cut whatever is necessary and do not touch anything else.

    Sometimes, the hair are not easily accessible. Be sure to light them up so that they are no longer a problem for you. In this case you might experience a bad smell, so do not get annoyed. Moreover, you might also leave a mark on the wheel which shouldn’t be much of a problem.
