Featured in the PR book!
I was working on a little pincushion project. I decided to use my adhesive lint pick up roller to clean off my cutting mat. It worked like a snap! No mess , no pulling out the vac to clean the carpet.

Even better is duct tape! It's stickier, so it pulls out any little silky pokeys that want to resist! I keep a roll just to pick up threads from all sorts of places. DH says I'm sort of like the little fellow on Peanuts, but instead of dirt, I have threads falling off me wherever I go!

Because, when I'm sewing, I'm usually cooking, too, and that means many trips up and down the stairs, and all those little threads follow me! I, too, swipe the cutting mat, the ironing board -and the stairs-so I don't have to drag out the vaccum for a few threads.

I do this all the time, Jennifer. It's a great way to keep them clean. It also works wonderfully on the ironing board - great after working with velvet or boucle, or fleece, or.... :) -Ann

Good tip, Jennifer. For those that don't have a roller, you can make one by wrapping masking tape around your hand, sticky side out, overlapping a little till your fingers are covered. Also works great for hair, animal fur, [and in my case, molted bird feathers, lol] and it's disposable.
