|This is such a simple tip but I couldn't find anything listed here so - I'm adding it. I always seem to have threads, lint from my serger, etc. everywhere. I just use one of those cheap masking tape lint rollers and it works like a charm. I just roll it across my counter and it picks up everything. I even use it on the floor underneath my serger or sewing machine to pick up those fallen threads. It works on rugs too. Inevitably, threads stray from my laminate hardwood floor to the rug in the hallway. I pick them up in a second with this roller.
You can see from the picture that it's about time that I peel off that outer layer for a new layer of adhesive.
