Tuning up your sandpaper

I’ve finished construction on a loft bed for son #2 and have started the sanding. Except that my 120 grit sandpaper was leaving much bigger scratches than I’d expected. A call to my father to ask if he knew what I could be doing wrong elicited this tip:

Tune up your sandpaper by taking two pieces of the same grit and rub them together to knock off any oversized grit that might be present.
