Question Cleaning the flock

I've accumulated some white lint on the flocking around the sunroof and within the driver's door. Is there a "safe" way to clean this stuff? I notice from past cars, it's easy to rub off the flock material. I'm going to pick up a lint roller, but have a feeling it will not be of good use.

Open to suggestions/ideas

Get the flock outta here

To remove lint use a soft rubber napping brush to loosen the lint and them follow up with a lint brush

Duck tape is one way...or there is a rubber brush that is used for pet hair, found at Pat store that will do the trick as well.

I ended up using a damp cotton cloth and the flock is flawless now. Nothing else worked. Thanks for all the ideas.
