I just ripped a very dense satin stitch to redo an applique onto a knit fabric tonight, and was getting frusterated trying to see what threads still needed to be pulled out and what was just the mess hanging around. I then remembered that we have one of those roll-of-tape-on-a-stick pet hair thingee which, while not doing all that good a job getting dog hair, does an absolutely fantastic job of cleaning up the loose thread mess.

I searched for hair here and didn't see anyone else mention this - hope it's not too simple an idea!

I could not live without these things! I use them in my embroidery business for picking off clipped threads. The pet hair ones are definitely stickier than the regular lint rollers.

I use this all the time. I wrote a tip on this in December (http://sewing.patternreview.com/cgi-bin/review/readreview.pl?readreview=1&ID=986" ). Sometimes these things need to be brought back up again. Thanks for doing that. I only pay 99 cents for mine at the dollar store. Love these things. I even use it to pick up those loose threads that fall on the floor and my table.

But I paid $3 more for mine at the pet store so it must work better, right? :)

I do this, too! I think most folks know those gadgets as lint rollers . . .
