Featured in the PR book!
My husband purchased a long-handled toilet brush recently. Since we already had one, I hid it in my sewing room. After finishing a sewing project and wanting to clean up all those threads, I spotted the toilet brush in the corner. A light bulb went off in my head!! I reached for the toilet brush, bent over a little and started sweeping up all those threads.

Well, what a great idea!!! I just got done cutting all those pesky winds of thread off of the rollers on my sewing chair. Wow! What a job that was! I have since been determined to be more diligent about picking up threads. I do embroidery and as anyone knows those threads will eventually regroup and attack all on their own. The toilet brush will go well with some of my other odd tools such as the lobster claw meat picker that I use as a corner turner.
