My friend Lee went to Lee Valley a few weeks ago. She bought these tiny brushes. They came in 10 packs. I had never seen them before. She uses them to clean her sewing machine. She gifted each of the Friday girls with a set at coffee last week.
Perfect timing, since I'm lending my sewing machine to a friend today to sew a wallet, I thought I'd give the brushes a try. I cleaned all around the feed dogs, in around the bobbin area and up around the top of the shank area. I didn't realize how much lint can collect in such a small area. These micro brushes worked fantastic. Much better than the Q-tip solution I had been using before. So that's one machine cleaned and now I'll give the other three a cleaning.
Many thanks Lee! It's a great gift and I'll get lots of use out of these.
