I just had one of those "why an earth didn't I think of this before???" moments. I have been steadily removing tailor tacks with increasingly weary fingers. Some of the stubborn little threads insist on staying put after becoming stuck in seams/button holes.

I was stood in my bathroom when it dawned on me my tweezers were the perfect tool for grasping the pesky ends of the mulish mites, and being able to give them a good pull to get them out. It has worked a treat. No more sore fingers for me!!
