Do you Dust your Sewing Machine?

If you don't know, your machine needs to be dusted at least every 6 months.
Mine was up for a cleaning, so I took some pictures. I can't believe how filthy it is! All you do is remove the plate, dust with a paint brush, and replace!
You should also oil your machine every 3-6 months, depending on use. Check your owners manual for detailed instructions on how to maintain it!

  1. THIS is why you rock! I have never dusted my sewing machine before and I am sure my grandma never did it either. I am putting it on my to do list for the weekend. Thanks girly :)

  2. I've dusted out my sewing machine once since I've had it, and my instructions say don't oil it--somehow mine is supposedly designed that it shouldn't need oiling? We'll see how well that works out. I hear the new ones don't last nearly as long as the old ones did!

  3. Oh geez, I never knew that! I think my Moms old sewing machine hasn't been dusted in maybe over 20 years (haha). I really want a new one, been wanting to do so many DIY. Good thing you posted this tip! :)

  4. Hello there! I know this is kind of off topic
    but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this
    website? I'm getting fed up of Wordpress because I've had problems with hackers
    and I'm looking at options for another platform.

    I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  12. My cocker Troy, developed allergies when he was
    around 13 years old, and to this day (he passed 2 years ago at
    the age of 15) I still don. Surgical therapy, on the other hand, include skin grafts
    from a person. Mild acne usually causes only blackheads and whiteheads.
    It's an antioxidant that supports the production of collagen. If you want to
    keep your cocker from getting Seborrhea, shampoo it regularly with
    an antifungal shampoo. A couple of such purposes are to promote youthful-looking skin and
    cure blemishes. One that contains vitamin C - important to the production of collagen - may
    help to restore elasticity to stressed, aging skin. While beauty is, as
    they say, skin-deep, physical appearance is the first thing that impacts on a person upon the first meeting.
    Men who experience a rash, blistering, itching, soreness or burning after coming into contact with a possible allergen should wash the area carefully and avoid any further contact with the substance.
    It will usually come as a result of too much humidity.
    Plain cool drinking water is the ideal, nevertheless, you
    could make it more appealing by squeezing a slice of lemon or perhaps some other Vitamin C-rich fresh fruit in it that revitalizes our
    skin. A person with vitiligo may also have premature graying of the scalp hair, eyelashes, eyebrows, and
    beard. People are now relishing complete and reliable all-natural
    treatment. The best way to deal with cocker spaniel skin problems is to make sure that you give your
    cocker a regular coat trimming, as well as a condition-appropriate shampoo, and
    of course, re-visit what he or she is being fed.
    Currently there aren't any cures for this rare genetic disorder.
    And this is not all, because when we talk about whole grains
    the list of the abilities will continue almost
    forever. You will now get to read about one of the most reliable natural ways
    of dealing with Keratosis pilaris (Chicken skin). If your cocker is displaying this behaviour, try keeping them out of the heat
    for a while until the condition clears. It also affects the fingernails and toenails with pitting and discoloration that might
    start to detach from the nail bed. You could try but you'd wind up
    with more skin problems, stretch marks and dimples that surgery would probably struggle to repair.
