They aren't magnet shavings but little pieces of iron that have been attracted by the magnets. Best way I have found to get rid of them is to take the motor apart and spray it out then wipe out the inside with a shop rag. Give the bearing a drop or two of oil and reassemble EXACTLY the way it was before you took it apart. If you havent taken a motor a part pay attention to wear the timing marks are pointing, which side is positive and negative on the can, and the shims inside the motor.

A small neodymium magnet seems to work good in picking up small pieces of iron from motor magnets.

I spray out the can with motor spray then blow it out with compressed air. It gets em clean as new for me.
