I am in the middle of making panties using a nylon tricot. During the process of sewing I found that my presser foot other parts of my machine get covered in "dust bunnies". I use a small sable paint brush (the ones used by watercolor artists) to clean the presser foot and all other parts I can reach. It picks up the dust bunnies in a hurry and only takes a few seconds when you see those little critters appearing. But remember, after the entire process is done, you really do need to clean the shuttle, feed dogs, and all else.

Isn't that the truth! I was completely amazed at the dust build up around my feed dogs when I last changed my plate. Now I take a few minutes to check that whenever I finish a project. Well, at least, I intend to -- and do it usually.
