When sewing if you need to rip out your work, when you are done run a lint roller over the thread and all the little pieces come right out.

I use a lint roller to clean lamp shades and carpeted steps. The lint roller is great in between my regular vaccuming. I just roll the lint roller over the lamp shade and it works great also.

Everybody loves scratch offs but the silver shavings that come off are very messy and hard to remove from fabric. Today, that changes!

Roll the lint roller over the scratched ticket and it will pick up every last bit of that mess. Good luck scratching!
