once the tip is cut off go to the sink and wash it out. if that doesn't work get a papertowel and slide a pencil inside the tube with the paper towel attached. Or easier get a cotton swab and swab the tube out.(wet it first.)

This is so cool. I hate seeing pencil shavings in pencil cases, on the table, in ashtrays etc. One question: I don't quite understand step 4. Where do I put the paper? is it folded as a lift for the sharpener? I may have misread your instructions. Thanks.
