How to use "Brush off" in context?

When we bump into others, it's always polite to say "sorry" and brush off our clothes. But sometimes, even when we mean to brush off, we end up rubbing our clothes against the other person's arm or body. This can be really uncomfortable, and can even lead to a unwanted exchange of bodily fluids. So when we're bumping into others, it's important to make sure to brush off our clothes in a way that's both polite and sustainable.
