Tips and Hints 4- Cleaning Your Machine with Micro Applicators/Brushes
I am sure that you all know how to clean your sewing machines but we do not always have the most user friendly tools to do it with. I have been using these little bendable brushes called Micro Applicator/ Micro Brushes for a while now ( think I got a few from my dentist a few years ago) and thought I would share them with you. I remember seeing them at the dentist and thinking what a great little tool they would be to get into all of those little nooks and crannies that normal brushes, cotton buds etc just do not reach. If they get into your teeth they must be fine to get into our machines I thought.
Was I surprised to see them in an Eleanor Burns webinar very recently. So what is special about these little brushes? They are bendable and that little tip on the end collects dust and loose threads like you would not believe and there is no fear of it coming off and lodging in parts of the machine.
