    Cant beat the sponge often have sponged walls when under pressure if the wall is well taped and sponged correctly along the sides in a situation where there is little light it gives a good finish. Handy if your not coming back or if its a small not so important thing. Have done this countless times and never a problem makes me wonder why we sand at all. Provided there are no ripples in the centre of joint. Works a treat with blue sheetrock and saves a lot of effort on ceilings esp if sanding by hand.
