Removing Dust - The Use of Tack Cloths

Removing Dust - The Use of Tack Cloths


When you are looking to create a professional looking finish on any surface it is important to ensure that you have effectively removed any dust from the surfaces during the processes and prior to any final polishing, painting or coating. 

A tack cloth also referred to as a tack rag, is a loosely woven cheesecloth which has been impregnated with beeswax, creating an excellent way of removing the smallest dust particles from surfaces to get them ready for painting, staining or finishing.

For polishing metal for example, if you do not remove the dust created by your early abrasive grit, you will be working against yourself as you attempt to go up the grits to get your desired finish.
