Step 3: Remove pilling and fuzz
Once you have decided what you want to keep in your closet, it is time to freshen up your garments a bit. Light wear and tear such as pilling is easy to remove. A common misconception is that pilling is an indication of poor fabric quality, but this is not always true. Pills are simply excess fibers that rise to the surface of certain textiles, which is completely natural even for more exclusive materials like cashmere. Shave off the pilling with a fabric shaver
to make your clothes look and feel new again.
Other minor imperfections can also be fixed with the right tools and a little patience. Sew back buttons that have fallen off, patch over small holes, and cut off loose threads. Surface dirt, lint, and dust can easily be removed using a clothing brush
. We recommend avoiding disposable products and instead opt for clothing care products that will last for a long time. Our reusable lint brush
is a modern alternative to the disposable lint roller that quickly and gently removes lint, hair, and dust from all kinds of textiles.
