Thank you Lewis Hyman Inc. for sponsoring this post and helping us save our clothes from those pesky pills! All opinions are my own and all results are true.
We’ve all had it happen, you buy a sweater, you wash it once, and when you take it out of the washing machine it has those pesky little pilling balls all over it! I know, it’s SO frustrating! Lucky for you, I discovered a new tool and it’s the BEST way to save your clothes and remove pilling!
You might be thinking, yeah, I’ve seen one of those before, they don’t work. When I was younger my mom actually had something similar and it sort of worked, but not really. Well this isn’t my mom’s knock-off version, Hyman Inc.’s new Vanish™ Deluxe Fabric Shaver is no joke!
The Vanish™ Deluxe Fabric Shaver is the only fabric shaver that comes with 3 different heads. Each head is designed to remove everything from lint, fuzz balls and pilling from all types of fabric, everything from delicates to wool sweaters, and even furniture! It’s perfect for your delicate sweaters, or skirts, great for your kid’s brand new school clothes, and even works on your upholstered furniture.
I have a couple favorite items that I’ve never put in the dryer, but somehow they still ended up pilling, so when I received the Vanish Deluxe Fabric Shaver I was excited to put it to the test. In the picture below you can see how pilly (if that’s even a word) my sweater was.
On my sweater I used the Heavyweight Screen and the results speak for themselves! It looks brand new again!
Here’s another closeup so you can really see the difference.
Using the Vanish™ Deluxe Fabric Shaver is a great way to preserve your clothes and help them last longer, by improving their appearance. And remember it’s not limited to just your clothes, you can also use it on fabric upholstery, car seats, etc.!
Here’s what I learned:
- The product works most efficiently when you empty out the lint trap often. I found that when I didn’t empty it often enough, it took me longer, and the results weren’t as good.
- It takes time to get results. It took me about 10 minutes to do the front of this sweater but you can see it’s totally worth it because my sweater looks brand new again.
- I started out using a circular motion but had better, faster results when I went in an up/down motion on the fabric.
- The brand claims that the product doesn’t snag, even on seams, however in the process of de-pilling my sweater the product snagged multiple times, sometimes even on the flat parts (it was probably user error).
If you have a need to revamp your furniture, or some pilled clothing, you can purchase the Vanish™ Deluxe Fabric Shaver at Bed Bath and Beyond or, for your convenience it’s also available on Amazon (but it’s more expensive). Have fun de-pilling, I know I did!!!
