I can’t be the only one who has accidentally elbowed my box of pins and knocked them all onto my carpet. I have done this several times. No fun.
Instead of picking them up by hand, risking lots of little pin pricks on my fingers and also possibly missing a few (dangerous with little baby about to be crawling), I grabbed my fish tank cleaner, which is a super strong magnet, and just waved it over the carpet. It picked up every single pin no problem!
I’m sure not everyone has a fish tank, but any strong magnet will work great!
