What are Tack Rags and Tack Cloths?

Tack Rags (or tack cloths) are made of a specially treated cloth material that is tacky to the touch. The rag/cloth is generally wrapped around the end of a broom or dust mop then used on a floor surface to clean up fine particles, such as dust after grinding, sanding or screening a floor. Some manufacturers (i.e., 3M) have a special holder (frame) for their tack rags.
