If you have purchased a sewing machine from Brother, you know that they are top-notch sewing machines. They are some of the best-made sewing machines in the world. Also, you may have paid a considerable amount of money for your Brother sewing machine. Even though they are some of the best-made sewing machines in the world, they still need to be cleaned.
The more you used your sewing machine, the more you have to clean it. Some companies say that you should clean your sewing machine after every 10 hours of use. If you sew a lot of flannel or felt, you may have to clean it even sooner than 10 hours. If you clean your sewing machine on a regular basis, the better your machine will run. Kind of like a car and changing the oil. You paid good money for your machine so its a good idea to take care of it.
Remember, if you do not clean your sewing machine and you let dust and lint get into your machine, you will have problems. Your machine will get louder and slower. This will cause your sewing machine to bog down and potentially stop working. Thus wasting your hard earned money.
