Protecting furniture from dust

Cover furniture with two sheets of plastic

During work area cleanup, the removal of plastic often releases sanding dust into the air. Keep furniture protected from airborne sanding dust by covering furniture within the work area with two sheets of plastic. Remove the top piece of plastic and allow any airborne dust to settle for an hour or so before removing the bottom piece. This tip will help to keep your furniture clean.
