We use these cloths similar to how you would use a tack cloth. Easier to work with, picks up dust nicely. One must be careful though of wood splinters/rough spots that can pick up yellow lint. Using these on clear coats must be looked at very closely before spraying over yellow lint. They last longer than tack cloths, can be blown out to reuse. I keep one at my computer too to dust periodically also. Dust away!!!
