Wet Drywall Sanding - Wring Sponge

Wring sponge. Conventional wisdom says to wring out the sponge as much as possible. But I find that because drywall sponges are so good at expelling water, a hard wring will leave the sponge almost bone-dry.

Certainly, you don't want a sopping sponge. But easing back on the wringing will leave enough water in the sponge to loosen the joint compound.
