What is a tack cloth composed of? I know it is supposed to be used after sanding, before painting. I sanded, and am about to wash with Tsp, then what?

tack cloths

Tack cloths are recommended to wipe sanded surfaces to collect dust(the #1 cause of flawed finishes). These cloths are specially treated with resins, I believe, and are available at your local paint center. You did not indicate what your painting project was. If you are working on a piece of furniture, perhaps you will find useful info at http://www.refinishfurniture.com. If you are painting your home, you will find useful info at http://www.doityourself.com/paint.
