Screen Shot 2017-01-17 at 7.57.52 AMTwo easy peasy ways to remove pilling! You know those annoying fuzz balls that roll up on the top of your fabric? Well, I have a few simple tricks to get rid of them and they are life changing (for the wardrobe that is)!

Lint Shaver
Optional – lint roller

1. Lay item to be de-pilled as flat as possible. Any bumps or ridges can result in a hole! Be very careful!
2. gently and slowly run your razor along the surface (or you can just use a lint shaver). I find the razor to have the best outcome. I always run a the lint shaver over the harder to get parts. If you are looking to quickly de-pill then use the lint shaver, it will work great!
3. If you used a razor, then roll some tape or a lint roller over all the fuzz that was shaved off. Done!
