When the “loops” on a sander’s hook-and-loop pad become clogged with dust, the sanding discs won’t cling properly. Here’s a simple fix: Buy a nit comb at a pharmacy. They’re sold for removing head lice eggs, and the metal tines are much closer together than a standard hair comb. Drag it across the sander’s pad vigorously, and the tines will clear the debris easily without harming the loops. Worksgreat for cleaning other hook-and-loop items, too.
