The soft bristles from the pipe cleaner will grab all the loose fibers inside your machine in a blink of an eye. Now, I use this brush on both my everyday stitcher and my serger. Since you can bend the head, it’s perfect for getting inside the serger. Just think of all the hard to reach places it can squeeze into. You will never have to fish around for those dust bunnies again!

Did you see all the dust bunnies the pipe cleaner brush grabbed? It’s a must make for your tool box. Trust me, your machine will love you for it!

  1. Great idea. The only thing I might add is a dab of hot glue so the pipe cleaner doesn’t come off.

  2. Too funny, I saw this this morning on the Fons and Potter sewing show on PBS. It’s a bit of genius (and it looks like a little old-school toilet brush!)

  3. Oh wow, this is so smart! I’ve got to give this a try! (and maybe actually clean out my sewing machine…) I’ve got a Craft Gossip post scheduled for tomorrow evening that features your tutorial: http://sewing.craftgossip.com/?p=87414 –Anne

  4. Simple and effective, many thanks for this tutorial 🙂
