If you started with 220, you probably should have started with around 100 and progressed upward.
Your first grit is the most important. If you start with say 100 grit. keep on it until all imperfections are gone. Then gradually progress with 120, 150, 180, 220, 400, etc. Each grit is removing the grit scratches before it. If you skip a grit size, you will have to spend more time with the higher grit to cut down past the size you skipped. This is not very efficient with either your time or your sandpaper.
