A fabric shaver is so clutch to remove pilled fabric and fuzz without damaging your clothes. This is especially essential for sweaters, hoodies, and sweatpants that pill easily, but you can also use the fabric shaver on bedding, furniture, and carpets. It's oddly satisfying to see all the pilled fabric that comes off of your garments. It's basically the laundry equivalent of pulling off a pore strip. If you don't have a fabric shaver, click "add to cart" now. This one has 36,500+ 5-star reviews on Amazon.
