Sweater weather is here! And if you excitedly pulled out your favorite fall sweater only to realize it looks a little worse for wear, don’t freak out. You can probably fix it with a fabric shaver.
“I was skeptical, but this thing is magical,” wrote one customer in the reviews. “It removed pilling like a DREAM. I had a recliner that was dingy and had so much pilling in the fabric. This shaver saved it! It’s so fast and works so well. I used it on the inside thigh of my leggings too. It extends the life of your clothing!”
The Conair Fabric Shaver and Lint Remover safely removes pilling and fuzz from sweaters, socks, leggings, swimsuits and even sofas — you can adjust it for just about any fabric. Gently glide the two-inch shaving head over your pilled item and watch it do its thing. The detachable lint catcher catches the fuzz, making it easy to toss.
The shaver also comes in two power options: battery-operated or rechargeable. The battery-operated version requires two AA batteries (not included) and costs $14.99. The rechargeable one costs $29.99, and it comes with a detachable cord, so you can choose to plug it in or go cordless.
“It’s so dang simple and yet it can reclaim your clothes!” wrote another reviewer. “In particular, I had one Patagonia vest and several of my son’s uniform polos that had terrible pilling. I was on the verge of donating them when I bought this item. With a few batteries we were off to the races and I was shocked. Even my husband got in on the action! It does exactly what it’s supposed to do, it’s quiet, easy to use, easy to clean, small and great for traveling. It’s a must have for me.”
Look in your closet now. Are there any sweaters you aren’t ready to get rid of but you haven’t been wearing because they’re pilled? I do — and I’m buying this fabric shaver to save them.
