Lint Remover Reviews
This is a bit more expensive then most that run on batteries....but this gives you a charging cord, a little cleaner brush, and a new blade replacement...so you're really getting more for your money. It's not just the machine.
Mine came and I immediately took it out and started using it - I didn't even charge it. It worked right away - I didn't have to charge it.
Now, I bought my husband a ton of brand new Dickie pants for work. He wore most of them, and I set out to wash them. Unfortunately, I neglected to look inside the washer, as I usually do, to make sure it was empty, or at least had the same kind of clothes in them ready to be washed, and I just tossed in the pants. It covered up the item sitting on the bottom. Fourteen pairs - yes! 14 pairs of Dickies are now hiding that beautiful white, super soft, fluffy, fuzzy *&^$#)@ blanket that I meant to wash. So, pants, all 14 brand new pairs, and that stinking blanket are being squished all around the washing machine. My husband had to help me get everything in the dryer because my back was hurting <remember I don't know that blanket is in there> so he gets everything, blanket included <because he thinks I put that blanket in there on purpose!> and throws in the dryer, puts in dryer sheets and proceeds to turn the dryer on.
An hour later, I go to take the pants out...and come unhinged as I see that stupid blanket has thrown up MILLIONS of cruddy little lint balls ALL. OVER. HIS. NEW. PANTS. I came very close to a nervous breakdown. Cussing like a sailor. Cried like a big old baby - yes I did. WHO in their right mind does that?!
I did only what I could think of....I got my trusty brand new lint remover sticky sheet rolls out and proceeded to get lint balls off 14 pairs of pants. I had 6...SIX brand new rolls. Yep....all 6 are gone baby gone.
My husband, the great guy he is, swears it's no big deal...we'll just wash them again!
This little machine came in perfect time. I went and got all 14 pairs of pants that were just covered in tiny little white balls <all the pants were dark - black, blue, green...etc.> and sat on my couch for the long haul.
This lint removing machine removed every single stinking white lint ball from every pair of pants. They looked brand new. Seriously!
It was very easy to use. Turn it on, go side to side slowly so it gets everything, turn off, remove lint tray cover, empty, put cover back on and go at it again. I did have to figure out that cover though because if you don't put it on correctly - it doesn't shut properly and then you have all kinds of crud flying in the air. <yep I did that too> . I have yet to plug it in and charge it. I've used it a ton, and it's still going strong. T-Shirts, Sweatpants, my hubby's work pants, some sweaters...all look great.
I'm so happy with this I may purchase a few more, just to have.
Worth every penny, in my opinion.
Ok, so- when it comes to the actual removing of lint, this thing can cover some serious ground! Obviously due to the 2" ish head, but I didn't think something just and inch or so larger in diameter than all the other 1" removers I've used, but this is way more than twice as fast! I have a ratty old pair of bill Murray sweatpants that are my favorite but has pilling on the inside (making wearing them to bed uncomfortable for me) as well as pilling on the outside which also attracts and holds into lint/pet hair (making it uncomfortable for my hubby when his legs brush against them... which he avoids if I'm in these scratchy pjs). The motor is nice and strong- only 1-2 passes necessary to remove all lint! Not only does the size of the head make for speedy delinting, the size of the handle is large enough to have a nice hand grip, and with it being light weight it's easy on the hand while using it!
Now some cons- I did use this while the battery was running low and decided to plug it in- great that it still runs plugged in, not so great that it doesn't seem to draw power from the charge and is only at its max power when it's fully charged up.
Not sure if using one of these on fleece is a known no no, but I wouldn't recommend on that fabric ( thou ironic since it's the most prone to pilling). The fibers of the fleece seemed to get caught in the motor/spinny part behind the blade to get stuck and move slowly/not at all. An easy enough fix- just twist off the ring, remove the guard, pull off the blade, pull off the obstruction, repeat in the opposite order- but may as well save yourself the minor annoyance and avoid fleece items. No problems with other fabrics!
This is definitely a great lint remover and the best I've used- I can't say for durability over time as its new, but my favorite Jammie's are rejuvenated, and me, my hubs, and bill Murray have been sleeping more comfortably because of it!
