Ever slammed the iron down on your fusible, lifted it and found a wiggly black thread in the glue sandwich? No? Just me then.

The glue side of fusible seems to have a special attraction for thread ends, bits of cat fur, or those teeny triangles snipped out of concave curves to make them turn. They seem to fly onto it en route to the ironing board, and its such a pain to rip off fusible and start again.

It is a very good idea to check, and if in doubt, swipe it gently with a lint roller, the adhesive kind.
