Use a Razor to De-pill Your Sweaters

use a razor

Use a razor to take those little pills off your sweaters in no time flat.

They’re called “pills,” “bobbling,” “fuzz,” and “sweater knots” and they show up on sweaters and knit blends: those little balls that make a sweater you’ve worn once look like it needs a trip to the cleaners.

There are tools you can use to remove them, but if you’re in a bind you probably have a DIY remover for them right in your bathroom cupboard: a clean, dry razor.

Lay sweater flat on a hard surface like an ironing board or kitchen table and run the razor over it. Goodbye, sweater fuzz!
