we use the canvas ones from ebay about £110 for ten. cotton dust sheets are useless as they do not even stop dust.

have a look on ebay. i got five plastic backed twill sheets and two stair runners for forty odd quid delivered a few weeks back. superb. they're a bit mouldy now and smell like soil but thats because they got wet. if you want some lightweight ones to go over furniture etc go to home and bargain. 3 metre square for £1.62 each. they do two micowaveable rice for a quid as well. they had them in aldi the other week as well.

I tried the plastic backed ones, thght they were **** tho, the dust gets trapped between the plastic + the dustsheet, makes more mess than it saves, now jus put plastic down then sheets on top of that.

Tarps are the way forward Imo. Cheap. Waterproof. Can hose them down when dirty or shake them and the bits fall off

I was slow to get on with tarps but the best thing ever :)

Dust sheets just seem to hold the dust in :-(

Exactly. Staple tarps down and you can use stilts etc easily. Tool station are by far the cheapest

Yeah I mainly use tarps now, get them cheap enough in B&M and like people have said they hide down and wash off easily, never stapled them down tho, might try that

Ye use the carpet protectors when the price can justify them or use these around the perimeter of the room and sheets in the middle

£20.00 extra on the price, guaranteed no damage, plus they get dust sheets there ready for the painters/themselves... Don't knock it until you've tried it! I have had 3 plasterers (Good 'uns from Berkshire to Chesterfield) who couldn't get over them...

Windy, have you tried them? ---- Be honest! -- try it then decry it... Its bloody good, especially for messy plasterers/ painters!!!:RpS_thumbsup:

If you read my post properly you would see I said I use them all the time.. But if your on a keen price you can't justify them sometimes
