What is the best way to Depill a sweater?
Place the garment on a flat surface and then use a small pair of scissors or a razor blade to carefully remove fluff and pills. If you’re worried about damaging the sweater, you can find something that will remove the pills more gently, such as a fine-tooth comb, pumice stone, or even a fruit zester.
Can you shave a sweater with a razor?
Shaving Razor Make sure to use a new sharp blade, and go for a razor without added moisture strips if possible. To use it, simply shave the pilled areas of your clothing just like you would shave your skin. It’s effective, but it doesn’t pick up the pills like a fabric shaver does.
How do you get pilling off a sweater?
To get rid of pilling on your clothing, you can try household items, like a sandpaper sponge, a shaving razor, or a strip of Velcro. You can also use store-bought tools, such as a sweater comb, an electric sweater shaver, or a sweater stone.

Why do sweaters get fuzz balls?
What causes fabric pilling on clothes? These pesky fabric pills are the result of normal wear and tear— broken clothing fibers on the surface become tangled together. Over time, these threads clump together, forming the characteristic lint ball that is stuck to your clothing.
Can you use a razor to remove pilling?
A cheap no frills razor will be most effective. Just make sure it’s a sharp new one. Pull the fabric taut with one hand and lightly shave one section at a time.
How do you remove pilling from delicate fabric?
One of the most effective ways to remove pills is to use a fabric comb or a battery-operated pill and fuzz remover that shaves the pills from the surface of the garment. These will pull the knotted fibers away from the surface of the fabric.
What is pilling on a sweater?
Pilling occurs when groups of fibers break, tangle, and mat together, making the texture of the sweater rough and decidedly unattractive.
