A close shave: BEAUTURAL Fabric Shaver and Lint Remover

Different fabrics require different levels of blades to safely remove pills from the surface. The Beautural Fabric Shaver comes with a safety cover to protect wool sweaters and other delicates, while removing the cover will make the shaver more effective on cotton and synthetic pieces.

Fuzz fiends

Some of these lint removers are the best at specific jobs, but we think the Conair Fabric Defuzzer-Shaver is the best at the most jobs, for a small cost. The handle position makes it comfortable to hold while you tackle larger tasks, and the lint collection container keeps fuzz from landing back on the fabric you removed it from. Conair also offers this model in a rechargeable version for a higher price point.

If electric isn't your thing, you can't go wrong with the Scotch-Brite Lint Roller Value Pack. Each clean sheet makes it easy to remove fur from any surface, and you can even use them for small debris (like crumbs or dirt) on the car floor.
