Ensure a smooth and blemish-free finish every time with Trimaco's SuperTuff Tack Cloth. While working on virtually any surface, our Tack Cloth is excellent for cleaning between coats and is reusable. To use, simply open cloth fully, bunch together and wipe surface gently before each coat of finish.
I recently purchased this because I painted my cabinets. I didnt know how much I needed this until I had it. I read reviews of people complaining that it leaves residue. I personally didn't see any residue on my cabinets, but it did leave residue on my hands (which I don't mind). It is a cloth covered in wax, so it's going to happen. After I sanded my cabinets down, i vacuumed the saw dust, but theres that tiny bit that's left. This cloth picks up EVERYTHING!!!!! One cloth also goes a VERY long way. We also had to sand the cabinet frames inside the house, and there was dust absolutely everywhere. A vacuum with an attachment only picks up so much, especially on the counters. I figured I would use it to wipe it up, and from now on, this will be my dusting cloth.... I wish I would have known about these bad boys earlier.
We are cabinet and furniture refinishers and we have tried all tack cloth we could get our hands on, these by far are the best. They last way longer, have much more tack to them then the ones from home depot, lowes or the Sherwin Williams store. These are a part of our daily routine repainting cabinets and furniture.
I've used tack cloths before, but these are overly tacky/gooey. I wiped lightly, but the cloth left so much residue on my hands & wood door I had taken time to sand & prep for varnishing. I had to scrub my hands with 409, then dish detergent. Even then, they were still very sticky feeling. The wood had a waxy residue on it, so I was NOT going to put varnish on it & have the whole thing become a mess. I ended up washing the door thoroughly, then had to wait for it to dry. Additional work & waste of time! I would not use these again or recommend them.
You can wipe down a sanded wooden surface to your heart's content, but if you don't run a tack cloth over it, you're not removing all of the dust. This product is basically disposable, but I use mine several times before discarding. The trick is to wipe without pressing down too hard. The wax can transfer onto the wood, which causes paint not to adhere, so a light touch is important. Store in a dust-free area when not in use. These work better than my cloth tack cloth, but I usually start with the cloth and finish with these.
I desired to clean my surface prior to painting. This product left so much wax residue on my hands and on a test spot that there was no way I was going to risk putting paint on top of the wax. You could easily see the sheen from the light glinting off the residue.
I use these to clean the sanding dust for the guitars I build. I could not do without this tack cloth. It removes ALL of the lacquer sanding dust in between sanding grits all the way up to 10000, and then to 3 grades of rubbing compound. Such an inexpensive tool that does so much toward achieving a mirror finish.
I really don't have any dislikes about this product I just I wish it was easier to handle when first opening are you can't have everything what I like about this product tack cloth you can't do a proper paint job without a tack cloth even today paper towels and toilet paper leave a residue almost like a dust nephew try really expensive paper towels and even though leave streaks just like when you're washing windows I've had an experience where I wipe my car body down with a paper towel and alcohol and there was streaks Josh marks left on a paper towel product I didn't realize it till I had started to shoot the car party oops too late it's not that it's not that visible but I know it's there there are six big tack cloth in this package if you keep them sealed up property they should last you a long long time do you want me to lose my shoe cannot do a proper paint job without a tack cloth these paper towels and stuff that makes day are trash unless you buy certain brands try washing a window paper towels today always leave streaks !
I use these to remove sawdust before applying wood oil and wipe on polyurethane to wood slabs and between coats. They are very tacky, particularly on the hands, so I usually use a plastic wrapper to hold it. I have not had an issue with residue on the pieces that I have worked on. I make sure I pass over it quickly and lightly and have been happy with the results on smooth sanded surfaces. It gets up fine particles that rags and my shop vac miss. The 6 count met my needs for a few months and I have no reservations about ordering more when the time comes.
The "tack" part of the cloth (oily adhesive) will transfer to your hands and the painting surface. Hand soap doesn't remove it, dish soap doesn't remove it, I had to use rubbing alcohol. I'll have to do the same to the surface I was painting.
Writing a review about tack cloth is a bit strange but.... The package was easy to open and the cloths were a great size for our project (cleaning concrete basement floor prior to new flooring bring installed). We had 600 sq ft to clean and only used 2 sheets. The cloths stayed tacky for much longer than I can remember any other tack cloths I've used. Once we used all these I will absolutely buy more!
Definitely removes the dust after you sand the furniture item. But use with latex gloves as it leaves your hands very sticky. Had to use glue gone to remove it from hands. And it appears each cloth lasts for a while as it was still very sticky after using one cloth. Just dirty from the dust which did not come off.
Redoing my kitchen and read on pintrest that these help keep everything smooth. They worked amazing! After sanding and then vacuuming and wiping down my kitchen cabinets these clothes still got the little pieces of debris that was there that I couldn’t see. Helped the paint go on so smoothly.
Does the job, picks up dust fast and does not leave a residue. Fair price.
these are over $2 ea at Lowes. Stock up as I always need these for painting projects.
Good quality, good value
Great product. 6 pack saves me money from the big box stores.
Too sticky and left lots of stocky residue. Hard to use
Saves me having to create my own -- reasonable price and OK quality
