Sounds intriguing, but I'm afraid years of habit would be to hard to  break 
at this point.  I'm really a hands on person!  I use my  finger.  Nothing to 
throw away, and I try to make all the crosses I need  with a given pollen at one 
time.  I carry alcohol or a wet wash cloth to  get rid of the pollen.  Clean 
the tweezers each time too.  But I  usually carry the bloom with me.
I use the post-it-notes to carry pollen into the house and to SAVE for  
another time.
