2. Use A Vacuum

The most recommended in this case is to use a handle vacuum with the low setting. If you don’t want your beads to lose the sparkle and reuse them, remember to take a cut off your nylon stocking, put it on the vacuum hose with a little inside of the hose. Hold on tight to nylon and suck up all the spilled beads. Pull out nylon and empty in the container to sort the beads out and maybe a little dirt.

3. Use A Bead Spill Saver
