Step 1: Materials
The materials for this are minimal
- magnet (preferably a strong one)
- a ziplock bag or similar
Step 2: The Bag
What you need to do first is to turn the bag inside out so that you can seal the filings inside it when done cleaning
Step 3: The Magnet+bag
Place the magnet inside the bag
This will ensure that your magnet is not covered in filings by the end of this
Step 4: Clean Up Time!
Now make sure the filings won't get to the magnet, just roll or tie the bag closed. Now just run the whole thing across your workbench or where ever and watch the magic of magets
Step 5: Collecting the Filings
Now to get your filings inside the bag carefully flip the bag right side out. Now seal the bag closed and there you go, a nice bag of filings( and probably other bits of trash)
Step 6: What to Do With It All
If you have been on the internet for a little bit, you've probably seen the magnetic putty. Now if you know how to make slime or goo you can just mix in some filings and BAM it becomes magnetic( of course you might have to tweak the recipe to make the slim a little thicker
