For Interior Walls – You want to make sure that your walls radiate with the colors that you choose and are lint-free. That’s why the best tool for the job is the trusty tack cloth! A lint-free tack cloth or even a cheesecloth tack cloth will work wonders on your walls, taking up all the dirt and dust with every swipe so you’ll have a clean wall to paint.

For Automobiles – When you’re painting something high-tech such as an automobile, you’ll need to make absolutely sure that your surface is clean. For this job, the lint-free tube is best in preparing the surface for painting. Our tack rags are also great choices to use if you choose to paint or touch up your automobile since they are infused with a hydrocarbon resin to help pick up all those pesky particles!

For Furniture and Wooden Objects – Wooden objects and furniture can take quite a while to perfect, especially if you want to stain and varnish the piece. It’s definitely worth it in the end, though, especially if you use the right rag to clean all the dust particles after sanding it down. Once again, tack cloth is a good choice to use between coats of varnish to help wipe the surface clean.
