Tack Cloth “Recipe”

Is there a handy recipe for making tack cloth? I recall a simple formula using turpentine, linseed oil and cheesecloth.

Richard Jones: A damp rag will pick up dust nicely between sanding. Water or mineral spirits both work well. Dampen the rag and squeeze it out thoroughly before use.

Michael Dresdner: Obviously, a rag dampened with water is cheaper, smells less, and can be reused again and again by rinsing or washing it, and it is every bit as effective as anything else.
