Ever wonder how to get rid of those pesky balls of fuzz on your favorite sweater? The answer may surprise you and it doesn’t involve a trip to the dry cleaner. New York’s The Laundress has the perfect solution with the sweater comb.

Before we get into how to get rid of those fuzz balls, it might help to understand what causes pilling in the first place.  The more you wear your favorite sweaters, the more likely they are to pill from all the friction. Also, contrary to what some folks think, washing or dry cleaning has very little to do with the build up of fuzz.

So how do you get rid of them?

You might have heard that using a razor or scissors are your only options but they’re not. The Laundress’s sweater comb is a simple solution to a simple problem. Made from two fine metal mesh screens sandwiched between a cedar wood handle, you just need to comb away the fuzz to rejuvenate any fine gauge sweater. Any bunched up or loose fibers will be swept away while leaving a freshly groomed layer behind.
