I've found that scrap pieces of stretch velvet make great "wipes" for the serger. The nap seems to catch up all the dust and lint and is a great way to clean up the serger when you're in a hurry and can't bother with the vacuum attachments or lint brush. I'm guessing any kind of lint-free fabric with a raised nap would work as well. I just toss the scraps in the wash when they get dirty and they're ready to go again.

Jackie - this is a great idea! I use fleece scraps sometimes. It is nice how it attracts all the little fuzz. Thanks for sharing.
