Studio chair - to refiner or not?

I am replacing my studio chair. It is an office chair with a cloth seat and plastic arm rests. I have been working with gold in the las 10 years and am wondering if I should send the chair seat to the refiner, or if giving it a good vacuum with the gold vault dust collector would be sufficient. I doubt I got a lot of gold dust stuck on my derierre while working. Any thoughts/suggestions?

Others on Ganoksin who work in gold have sent their cushions in to their refiner. They may offer some suggestions. Be sure that your refiner will accept them…Rob
