Default What's "scuff sanding"?

Instructions that came with a primed steel door say to scuff sand
before painting. What's the best material to use for that? I'll just
be doing it by hand, no electric sander. Thanks...

That's it -- just a light sanding to "scuff up" the surface slightly to
provide a good surface for bonding...80 to 100 grit good choice.

I'd use 240 grit,80-100 will leave visible scratches,may even take off the
primer.

A clean, new scotch brite pad works beautifully for "scuffing"

I find a scotch-brite pad or similar does great for things like this.

Which one? What color pad? I'm guessing that the super fine would be
best/safest. Thanks...

and doesn't leave steel fibers to screw up your finish like steel wool
does.

Don't the packages LIST the grit equivalent?

Or like some sandpapers,say coarse/medium/fine.(80-100/180-240/400-600)
