Want to buy sewing machine oil?

It goes without saying that sewing machine oil is essential for efficient, smooth operation of your household or industrial sewing machine. If you don't lubricate your sewing machine enough, all moving parts will wear out faster. But some brands need more oil than others. This often has to do with the bobbin case system in the sewing machine. So if you are going to buy sewing machine oil, your sewing machine will generally run better if you lubricate and clean it regularly. It will also make less noise while sewing. With most sewing machines, you will first need to remove the lint and pieces of thread that accumulate during sewing and then apply drops of oil

Why use sewing machine oil?

The oil for a sewing machine or overlock machine is an odorless, slightly transparent synthetic lubricant. The main ingredient in this oil is a chemically processed petroleum product. Although there are additional ingredients that are also quite effective in lubricating your sewing machine. If you have used a sewing machine before, you already know that it needs regular maintenance to extend its life. Part of taking care of your sewing machine involves oiling it regularly. (Your machine's user manual will show you how to do this.) So proper oiling helps extend its life by reducing wear and tear in all its working parts and preventing rust and corrosion attempts.

Cleaning the sewing machine

Start by removing all sewing thread, stitch plate, sewing machine needle, sewing machine foot and bobbin case and if it can with you sewing machine the gripper. Also make sure the sewing machine is disconnected from power.

Using compressed air, blow dust and lint from inside the machine. It is important to remove small pieces of dirt and debris before lubrication, as it will mix with sewing machine oil and remain behind. When using compressed air, hold the canister about 15 cm away from the parts you are cleaning, at a shallow angle that blows dirt away from the sewing machine rather than deeper inside it.

Use a piece of soft fabric or a duster to clean the larger surfaces and spaces inside the machine. You can use a damp cloth to tackle hard-to-remove dirt, making sure to dry the sewing machine and parts afterwards.

How to oil a sewing machine

Put a few drops of oil on all moving parts of the sewing machine. If you are not sure whether a part of the sewing machine needs to be lubricated, just consider whether it rubs against another part when the machine is in operation.

If you use too much oil, use a dry cloth to gently rub off the excess.

Put a few drops of oil (1 or 2) into the gripper to lubricate. Check the user's manual so that you lubricate the right part. After you oil the sewing machine looper, let sewing machine run without thread for a while, this will avoid contaminating the fabric.

Oil for industrial sewing machine

The ingredients for industrial sewing machine oil are similar in their chemistry to the lubricants used for household sewing machines, but in much larger packaging. This oil is often used to fill the oil bath at the bottom of the industrial machine.
