Spellbinders makes a tool called "Tool in One" that has a small rotating brush on one end, and several pick tools on the other that store inside the handle. I've found that using wax paper and this tool to be very effective at removing intricate die cuts from the die. There is also a product called "Stick it" that is a double sided adhesive that you run through your die cutting machine with the die. The backing paper peels off and you have left a die cut with adhesive already applied. Both can be purchased on this website. Hope you find this helpful. Good luck!
