Make your sandpaper last by folding it like a pro.

I saw this in a magazine a while ago, and it changed my life. So obvious, so useful, so easy. If you fold your sandpaper this way, there are are no sand-on-sand sections wearing each other out. Each sand side is protected by paper. It's beautiful.

The picture says it all:
  1. Take a square of sandpaper

  3. Fold one "ear" down
  4. Fold paper side over the ear and fold down
That's it. Enjoy.
