Schnipsles (pronounced shnip-sulz)
Little snips and flakes and small debris from cutting paper, metal flakes in a fluid, little itty bits and bobs that don't need to be there.
"Mom! Danny didn't clean his schnipsles up from his construction paper project!"
"Honey, the transmission fluid has schnipsles in it, you need to change it NOW"
"There are still schnipsles on the floor from your decorations"
We made that up in our family. We still use it.
Shrink + wrinkle or shrimp and wrinkle. Our cat Pooky was a few bricks short of a load. She LOVED tapered candles, and would lean into them at the flame to investigate. You would smell hair burning - her whiskers had "shrimpled" up.
"hey Mom, Pooky is all shrimpled again"
"that paper got wet, it's all shrimpled up"
Once these are explained to people, they stick.
