WTF is lint free cloth? I need to wipe off excess sealer from a deck
with "lint free cloth", presumably so that bits of the stuff don't
come off. So what cloth to use? I've got white shop rags that leave a
bunch of crap on a rough surface. The only thing I can think of is old
thrown-away silk shirts.
Use 'microfiber cloths'. Lint free, pick up is outstanding, and rinse
out easily. They have a MULTITUDE of purposes! You can find them at
auto supply stores but are much cheaper at places like Costco or Sam's.
Great cloth and I use it for many projects. My bride holds them
hostage:-\\ They seem to be issued when requested.
Get most off with the method used to apply the sealer; secondary, a
white T-shirt (painter rags), but not a costly micro fiber cloth.
Don't use a red shop rag.

Maybe they lease them. I'm sure there are diaper services in some
parts of town.
I think that was why we had to have an automatic clothes washer,
because of the diapers.
The stuff in disposeable diapers is the same thing in the bottom of
little meat trays underneath the meat, in the meat department, right?
Nope, different purpose (although I guess one could say a tack cloth
would be a subset of lint free since don't want to pick up the dust
and leave lint in its place) -- a tack cloth is used after sanding,
say, and initial cleanup to pick up any remaining traces of dust and
so on before applying a finish. The lint-free cloth would be used in
applying an oil finish or rubbing out a finish. The tack finish on a
tack cloth would interfere w/ that...
100% cotton works pretty well and is easily available like the t-
shirt. Cotton blends w/ polyester or other generally not so well...
I aksed almost the exact same quesion in December, in
I got 5 replies not counting my own. OK, I'll just print them all.
You'll know a cloth is lint free by wiping a pane or mirror, then
carefully examining the surface for lint under magnification. You can
use a jeweler's loupe.
If your printer is showing horizontal streaks you can clean the
underside of the head using a Q-Tip moistened with distilled water.
Tap water can damage a printer head. Repeat the procedure with
another Q-Tip until it wipes clean.
Yes, gently rub the print head with a moist Q-Tip, underneath and 1/2"
beyond each side. However, it is best to follow the manufacturer's
recommendations. HP has mini-movies on their web site, one showing
how to clean the print head (sorry I don't have the specific url).
-- >On "How Clean is Your House" they said a coffee filter is lint-free.
In chemistry class we used "Kimwipes" which are lint-free tissues.
Flour sack towels. They're prewashed, preshrunk, and 100% lint free. (They're
typically used in cooking). You can buy a pack of 10 from wal-mart for about $8.
Honestly, they look like worn cotton undershirts so if you're cheap try those,
otherwise these should work great.
