Pipe Cleaners Clean More than Pipes

Pipe cleaners bring you back to craft projects of your childhood, but they can also be used as helpful tools.

Pipe cleaners bring you back to craft projects of your childhood, I bet. (Pipe cleaner animals or flowers, anyone?) Well, now you can play with them again. If you have a hard time cleaning out difficult-to-reach nooks and crannies in your sewing machine, try using pipe cleaners (also called chenille stems) found in a craft store. These super-bendy “mini Swiffers” easily attract dust and are reusable-just wipe them with your finger to clean.
