I sand between coats of poly principles to knock off dust that settles on the coat just dried. I see how Scotch Brite pads may do the trick but I just use a really beat up scrap of high-grit paper, usually 220. By beat up I mean the stuff that normally you’d have thrown away because most of the grit is gone. A light sanding, vacuum of the dust, clean with mineral spirits, wait a few minutes for things to dry, then on to the next coat. Don’t sand through the poly, and after the last coat polish with 0000 steel wool.
