wet-sanding drywall...

For those of you interested in rehabbing old buildings! 

My friend Susan told me about wet-sanding drywall to avoid the clouds of dust--I'd already started on the walls in my sweetie's house and discovered just what she meant, so today I Googled it, then gave it a try.  Even Reader's Digest covers the technique, http://www.rd.com/content/openContent.do?contentId=19400 and so do several other sites.

It IS a lot cleaner, but you have to be careful not to raise the grain of the drywall paper, and you need to rinse the sponge and change the water frequently, so it's probably more trouble but a lot less dust...

I lead SUCH a fascinating and glamorous life...
