    Dave,
    I wrote that post about the Hi-Float fibers. I did everything he recommended about brushing out the fibers with the dog brush. The fibers are extremely soft and easy to work with, they just...

    So.....for tiny (#22-#26) CDC Comparaduns oiler puffs would be great? I find them easier to manipulate in those sizes.
    Thanks.
