This little thing comes from a pharmacy, and is actually meant to use in the ear. It comes with a plug, but take it off, and you have a perfect little vacuum cleaner for your machine. It is long and flexible and fits into all kind of nooks and crannies – and it is really inexpensive! A word of advice: it you want the lint out - use it for suction, not blowing!
I have been asked what I’ll do if it gets full. Well, when I can’t squeeze the lint out, I guess I’ll have to buy another one…

I have tried lots of different brushes and stuff to clean the lint out of my sewing machine, but often the result is that I push the lint further down into the dark mysterious place where the engine and stuff are hiding.
