Does anyone have a good way to cleanup Dry Stickles glitter? I use one of those Tidy trays, and it just kind of sticks in there... and it goes everywhere.

I've tried baby wipes but that only seems to work on part of it.

Thanks in advance!

maybe rubbing alcohol? I know that sometimes, it will make cleaning up some of the adhesive on my tape runner rolls a little bit easier.

Maybe dab at it with packing tape or even regular tape?

I keep a cheap $1-store adhesive lint roller in my tool tote. It's quick & easy to go over my work table to pick up glitter and any other little, loose pieces, then tear off the dirty part and it's ready for my next mess :>)

I save box lids and can throw them out after using them. If you work somewhere and they get the big boxes (cases) of printer paper... those lids are perfect.

I tried a lint roller brush that I would normally use on my clothes. Works great!!! Thank you for the previous suggestion someone made!!

I use used fabric softener sheets and wipe down the tray I use first, before glittering anything. Then when finished, it pours back into the container much easier, also makes it less 'sticky'. Seems to work well for me, and I can recycle the fabric sheets in another crafty way This also works for embossing powder which I use a sheet of printer paper for, just wipe it down with the fabric softener sheet first! Be sure to get all parts of the sheet or tray when doing that. I have so much FUN learning and sharing here
