I use a painter's stencil brush to clean my serger. The one that I have has 2-inch long bristles, which are long enough to get into the inner workings of the serger and the bristles are stiff enough to get the job done well.

Thanks, I just got a serger. And wondered about all the lint.

Trying to clean the new machine with the tiny little brush supplied and gave up. Will be buying something along the lines of this hint

Thank you for the tip! I think that the brush that came with my machine is too small.

Sandra, I'm glad you posted this tip. I've been using one of those brushes, though the project I bought it for is long-forgotten and I'm sure, unfinished. Mine is a nice fat brush that grabs dust and thread when I "dab" it inside the machine, and you're right. It does a very good job

Good idea, the brush that comes with the serger is always so puny. I think I'll get one of these stencil brushes.

I do the same and it works great. Thanks for putting this in writing.
