I have to tell you I was rather impressed with this sponge and it really help with my lighter woods and even around the house like my shower and window seals. The flexibility of the sponge lets you get into those tight corners and little designs without damage. I also found that the dust and fine wood particles are less apparent when I am sanding. I used the sponge on my table to remove some old paint around the delicate swirl designs and it worked perfect. The sponge actually was able to get into the tiny grooves and crevices. Another thing I used it on was the wood around my kitchen cabinet. Finally, my big test was getting the paint off my shower walls, which the painter left. I have tried everything but was worried I would scratch the surface. First, I tried a small edge of the shower using the sanding sponge and it removed the paint in seconds without leaving a scratch. This is the first time in 4 months that I have my beautiful shower back in pristine condition. Again the sanding sponge was really flexible letting me hold on to it comfortably, plus it has 2 different sides. One side for the finer work like my table and then a flat side that I used in the shower and on my kitchen cabinets. The best thing about it is after all this use; you can barely tell I used it at all. It still looks almost new. Definitely a wonderful product that I will be buying again and my sister says she loves them and uses them all the time in her wood working business. I had no idea, but I am glad to have found them.

I received this product free from 3M to evaluate. For the project I used it for, the product worked fair. The fact that it was a sponge allowed it to capture more of the dust than a standard piece of sandpaper. However, this required the product to be cleaned, and while a damp sponge-like product did not lose the sanded material, it did require it to be cleaned, as it would clog. So it would need to be rinsed, and now you were sanding with a wet product, which I don't prefer as my method. The shape of the product was easy in the hand, as it simulated a sanding block, which I find to be easier to grip than a sheet. This product has both pluses and minuses as far as features.

      Do to nerve damage, am losing the use of my hands. I thought I would have to eventually give up my job. The fact that this is a sponge, it is flexible and easy to hold onto. I have much less pain in my hands at the end of the day. It works much better than I had anticipated. Last longer than I thought it would. I highly recommend using the product if you have any type of difficulties with grasping and holding onto things. I am still able to work thanks to this product.

      Great Addition to the 3M Sanding Sponge Lineup

      By DAWg

      from Cerritos, CA, United States

      Comments about 3M 60 Grit Sanding Sponge (20909-60-UFS):

      I absolutely love 3M sanding sponges and have been using them for decades - perhaps even since they were first introduced to the retail market. They’re effective, long-lasting, and reasonably-priced. However, the grooved channels on one side of the pad have effectively solved a problem that has long-plagued finish sanding, whether traditional sandpaper or sponge - loading of the grit surface with residue that winds up scratching the very surface you’re trying to smooth. Although listed as 220 grit, the sanding surface seems to be rougher, but the results indeed seem consistent with 200 grit sandpaper. Lightly sanding a brushed polyurethane coating that had already been sanded with an electric pad sander, the 3M flexible sanding sponge effectively channels the dust to the outside, leaving behind a smooth, matte surface that is ready for the next coat or a final polish with a finer grit or steel wool.

      Comments about 3M 60 Grit Sanding Sponge (20909-60-UFS):

      I was excited to get this product to review because I was just about to start a new project on a coffee table. The table was a bit scuffed, so I wanted to sand it down and re-stain. As I was using this product, I noticed it was a lot better than other sanders I have used in the past. It didn't leave too much dust and left a nice soft touch to the wood after I was completed. It didn't leave any rough edges! Another thing I noticed was how long this sander lasted. I still can use it for another project if I want even after sanding my coffee table!

      Easier sanding, design pulls dust away

      By shadowwkinz

      from metro Detroit

      Comments about 3M 60 Grit Sanding Sponge (20909-60-UFS):

      I received a new sponge from the sample site. The newer design made me question if it was better because of less surface area on the one side. Worked so much better!!!! Easier to apply pressure right where you needed it and helped move the dust away at the same time. Probably cut my sand time by a third. I compared it to a normal sponge. One side i sanded with the newer design and one side with the contemporary design. It was a noticeable difference in the time it took and the new design left a better finish. I've always believed the right tool for the right job and the new flexible sponge will be the way to go on a huge majority of work that requires a sponge sand.

      Great for small or tight space jobs

      Comments about 3M 60 Grit Sanding Sponge (20909-60-UFS):

      I had new a new countertop installed in my bathroom which required about 6 inches of drywall to be replaced around the backsplash. I usually sand with a block that you attach the sandpaper to. I had tried sanding sponges before but they were expensive because you couldn't sand very much before they clogged. 3M had sent me this sponge to try, and I was pleasantly surprised that it worked so well. I started with the grooved side and was able to get all sanded by just knocking and shaking out the drywall dust. And it was so much easier to get the neat edge where the drywall meets the granite than using a block. I did put down blue tape on the granite so I wouldn't scratch it. Very neat, smooth edges and ready to paint. Probably would not be using for large projects but great for small and tight space projects!

      Use this fine sanding block for a fine job!

      By KarrieOhKarrie

      from Vancouver, WA, United States

      Comments about 3M 60 Grit Sanding Sponge (20909-60-UFS):

      I was very excited to receive this sanding block from 3M to try out. It arrived just as I was finishing up a wooden welcome sign I was crafting for my home. The first coat of satin paint left me with a few paint drips over the side. This sanding block noted "paint and wood" as surfaces that could be sanded. At first, I thought it wasn't working because there were no signs of "sand" left behind until I realized it was working perfectly as designed. The grooves really did channel the sanded paint and wood away from where I was sanding and allowed me to have a smooth surface for my last coat of paint. This sanding block is not for heavy sanding. It is perfect for finishing up and light smoothing where you don't want the aggression of a coarse sanding block. I am very happy with this product.

      I was a little bit skeptical about this product and how useful it will be, compare with a regular sand paper; but when I used... I was amazed on what a great idea it is. It definitively produce much less, almost nothing, dust when you sand wood. Disclaimer: I am a 3M employee and received this product as free sample.

      I really like the honeycomb grooves on the sanding sponge! As most folks know, you wear them out pretty easily. I like that there are grooves for the dust to go into so the dust doesn't eat away at what your sanding. 3M gave me a free sample of this product to evaluate, however, my opinions are my own.

      I've been working on bringing an antique window back to life as a wall decoration. With all the little nooks and crannies, it's been kind of tough to sand until I tried this sanding sponge. I was able to squish it down and sand at the same time making it the perfect size for all the spots that needed sanding. What a fabulous tool!!

      Comments about 3M 60 Grit Sanding Sponge (20909-60-UFS):

      I recently received this product free from 3M to evaluate. I tested the Ultra Flexible Sanding Sponge out on a small area of a project that needed to be sanded. I have an old headboard we are redoing and it had a lot of scratches on it. The ultimate plan is to re-stain it and sanding it became necessary. I like that this sponge bends and curves as you sand areas. I felt like it was easier on my hands and fingers when sanding versus a traditional sandpaper. It was easy to use. I think it is a cool idea to put the grooves in it so that the dust from sanding moves away as you sand....usually with sandpaper you have to wipe and dust it away, and I did not find that occurring due to the grooves in the sponge. I found this worked well for my project, but this was a small scale project. I do not see this lasting very long for a tough sanding project. I recommend this over traditional sandpaper and think people would find it easy to use and flexible.

      The smooth side works well on small areas. The grooved side works much better on large areas. The grooves cause the block to "self clean." Being a sponge, the sander also works well on curved surfaces.

      I recently used the new sanding block when refinishing a front door. It needed to be completely sanded to prepare for stain and finish and with the pattern on one side of the sponge it made it a breeze to wrap around the profile of the wood. It also minimized the amount of dust which usually causes a sanding block to load up.
