Let's say I'm eating a sandwich, and a lot of crumbs fall on my clothes, and I don't want them there. What's the action of getting those crumbs off my clothes called?

Shake the crumbs off my clothes?

And what if they fall on my bed, shake the crumbs off my bed?

    Yes, you could shake them off your clothes.

    If they fell on the bed, you'd shake the crumbs off the sheets, or shake the sheets out to get rid of the crumbs.

    I would brush them off the clothes/bed. In order to shake my clothes/sheets, I'd have to take them off my body/the bed.

    Yes, bed sheets would have to be taken off the bed to be shaken out. But I've often held my shirtfront in my fingertips and shaken my shirt, while still wearing it, to get crumbs off. That's what I was thinking of.
