People also ask, what can be used instead of sandpaper?
- Sanding blocks -- sometimes called sanding sponges -- feel slightly rough like sandpaper all around, but bend and squish a bit like a sponge, allowing you to sand things that aren't entirely flat, such as spindles on chair legs.
- Emery boards -- yes, the type used to smooth fingernails -- also work like sandpaper.
Additionally, how do you pick sandpaper? For heavy sanding and stripping, you need coarse sandpaper measuring 40- to 60-grit; for smoothing surfaces and removing small imperfections, choose 80- to 120-grit sandpaper. For finishing surfaces smoothly, use a super fine sandpaper with 360- to 600-grit.
Also question is, what is 180 grit sandpaper used for?
180 to 220 Grit Sandpaper: Finer grit sandpaper is great for removing the scratches left by coarser grits on unfinished wood and for lightly sanding between coats of paint. 320 to 400 Grit Sandpaper: Very fine grit sandpaper is used for light sanding between coats of finish and to sand metal and other hard surfaces.
