I know...sounds odd but I wanted to share a little tip about how I clean my die cutting machine.
By cleaning, I mean mostly removing dust, lint, paper pulp, residue & debris that may get stuck in my die cutting machine, computer & other crafty tools.
In the crevices, I use compressed air. You know, the cans of air used to remove dust & lint off of keyboards & computers. It works well for your die cutting machines too. In fact, you can use it on any of your machines that may collect dust & lint or where paper pulp & pieces may get trapped.
In case you're wondering, they look like this:
You can find them in stores like Wal-mart, Target, Office Max, Staples, Big Lots & more.
Hope you give this a try if you find you are having trouble with dust, lint, paper residue on your tools or work surfaces.
