I'm curious about a sanding tool that I"ve seen on various HGTV programs, and I wonder if it is used just for drywall or if it can be used to sand walls in preparation for new paint. It looks like a plain swiffer mop: long handle with flat rectangular surface of sandpaper.
I've never been much of a 'sander" when it came to painting walls in my former home. Those walls all had what appeared to be rather flat paint. I only did a bit over the polyfilla areas, and that was with a piece of sandpaper wrapped around a block of hand-sized plywood, which is the recommendation of the guys in the family. However, as I have a bathroom to do that has paint a bit shiny, I'm thinking it would be a good idea to sand all the walls and ceiling.
What do you use when you must sand all the walls in a room prior to painting? Is a palm sander the way to go? ( a friend of mine suggested that)
