Grab a handful of small unusable scraps of fusible interfacing to remove thread and fabric "fuzz" from your cutting table, ironing space, sewing surface, sewing machine, scissor and cutter blades, etc.

I throw all scraps in a plastic bucket-like container which I keep at hand.

The tack of the fusible gathers all debris better than vacuuming, better (and cheaper) than painters tape, and much cheaper than sticky peel-off rolls.

Works quite well as a cat-hair-remover from garments just before you leave the house, too.

Also, a Q-tip acts like a magnet when de-fuzzing the bobbin area.
