Tutorial: How to clean and grease a sewing machine by Ishtar-Creations Tutorial: How to clean and grease a sewing machine by Ishtar-Creations
Hi there!
Here you have a tutorial that I think should be useful for some people like as me, has a basic sewing machine and small troubles with it. I plan to renove it since it's very used, but until I find a new one that satisfices me, I will work with the old Pinkie.

In this small tutorial you will learn how to clean and grease the machine for a smooth work. The basic cleaning job of the bobbin box should be done every month, and a complete work every 3 months.

Please, remember to use high quality needles and threads. The biggest part of the sewing machine problems is caused for bad quality supplies.

If you have any question, don't hesitate to ask me!

I am surprised I haven't stumbled onto something like this until now....my machine is almost four years old. Poor thing probably needs a bath by now!

Thank you for this tutorial. I had no idea that little key was to open different parts of the machine, and that you can clean everything with the little brush. It's very informative!
