The Lilly Brush in on a save our sweaters campaign to help save your favorite sweaters from the trash can simply because they have pilling. I can’t tell you how many times it’s happened to me that I purchased a sweater and after just a handful of wears it pilled under the arms and along the sides so much that I started to only wear it around the house when no one else was around. I tried shaving or using a pair of scissors to cut the fibers off but I’m just not that patient of a person and those options didn’t work all that well for me.
The Lilly Brush that was sent to me is gentle enough to be used on sweaters made from natural fibers. So whether it’s cotton, cashmere, wool or angora it’s totally safe, effective and easy to use. It consists of a brush and a cap and is designed in a way that it’s compact enough to travel with if you need that option.
I found the Lilly Brush to be very easy to use. Basically, all you have to do is put the shirt on a flat surface and run the brush firmly over your sweater and watch it remove those annoying little balls in seconds. The entire process takes a few minutes. Just be sure to not forget to empty the cartridge and rinse it off with soap and water every now and then.
Another bonus is that it also works wonders at removing pet hairs so if you have a dog or a cat at home this little contraption is a must. This way you can hug your pet and look presentable afterwards.
The people over at Lilly Brush recommend that you don’t use the brush on sweaters made from artificial fibers such as nylon, polyester and acrylic because those fibers are longer and the strands are held tightly to the garment. Since I prefer to wear natural fibers because my skin is so sensitive, this is all ok with me.
All in all, I would definitely recommend getting the Lilly Brush if you have good quality clothes that you don’t want to toss out after a few wears. It costs only $12.95 and is supposed to last for years so it’s a great buy. You can learn more about it on their site http://lillybrush.com/
