Hi all, I'm wondering if I'm the only one that goes through this and if anyone has any tips or suggestions to avoid it... As I'm working with small amounts of fondant or gumpaste to make flowers, I find that I get little bits of lint in the pieces that I cut away and re-roll. I don't want to constantly throw away the excess that gets cut off because I'll wind up needing 3x as much, but this is so annoying, especially with white! My work surface and tools are clean, I don't know where it comes from???????

This used to happen to me when I dried my hands on a kitchen towel. It just always had this element of fluff. I invested in 2 boxes of food-grade gloves and paper towels since.
