After time fuzz builds up in the little white Velcro hooks (the material on the handle). making it a real pain to keep your foams secure.
Here is a quick and easy way to clean out all the debris and make your IBT like new again!
(NOTE: this also works for the Alcohol Ink Applicators & Felts as the felts can cause build up over time as well!)
You can see how much has collected on the handle.
All you need is a Craft Pick -
Simply run the point of the pick between each row of "teeth" in the Velcro and lift up. This will dislodge any fuzzy bits which has built up over time.
After you have lifted all of the bits from between the teeth simply pluck it off and you're IBT will be set to go! You can see just how clean the Velcro is after the cleaning...and that pile of fuzz came from only one IBT!
So if you're having difficulties keeping your IBT Foam or AI Felts stuck to the handle maybe it's time for a bit of Spring Cleaning IBT style ;)
