Sanding Sticks

Maybe I'm missing something but I was excited about the little gray blue and white plastic sanding sticks I got initially but after a tiny bit of use the grit on the pointed end is gone and they're useless. I thought they'd be abrasive all the way through. I needed that sharpened point for some tiny areas. Am I doing something wrong?
