Introducing Roll Away - The revolution(ary) new die cleaning tool from Craft Obsessions!

We're so excited to be bringing you this brilliant die cleaning tool from Craft Obsessions, which will relieve all of the frustrations that come with cleaning intricate dies, featuring on Hochanda on Wednesday 4th May at 10AM and 1PM & 6PM.



Anyone who has ever used an intricate die suffers the frustrating job of having to clear out the dozens of waste bits of paper or card before they can use it again.

Existing die cleaning brushes work up to a point, but as die designs become ever more intricate, manufacturers are having to reduce the size of the openings in the back of the die to allow more intricate features to form part of the design. 

This results in upwards of 60 or more individual holes through which you can poke out the waste with a pin or craft pick or roll a brush over the back of the die and wait for just one bristle to find its way into the hole you need it to go through to force the waste out…..that is until now!

Introducing Roll Away:

This clever die cleaning tool features a high tack roller which literally pulls the waste bits out of your dies, time and time again. The really clever thing about this tool is that despite how incredibly tacky it feels – it will never leave any sticky residue on the surface of your dies.

When your roller becomes full of waste, you simply wash it in clean water for 30 seconds and gently rub it with your fingers to remove the waste pieces.  Once dried again on a lint free cloth or paper towel, it regains its super tacky properties and is ready to use again and again.

Over time, like everything - the soft material on the roller will eventually need replacing but that’s not a problem – refill rollers are available in a handy double pack so that you can simply pop a brand new roller into the tool handle whenever you need it.



Join David Rose and Craft Obsessions on Hochanda on Wednesday 4th May at 10AM and 1PM, to see for yourself how amazing crafting tool is! Make sure you watch Hochanda every day 24/7 for lots of fun and crafty demonstrations and inspiration from your favourite guests!
