Has anyone used a sweater stone before? I remember reading (somewhere, months ago) that they work really well for removing pilling/lint, etc, and at the time I saved it to my Amazon wish list. Fast forward several months, and I have listed a bunch of different lots of fleece footy PJs (almost all of which have sold within the first two or three weeks, yay!). A few are a bit pilly, which I did note in the description, but I started wondering what I could do about it. Thus, I went back and found where I had saved the sweater stone on my Amazon wish list and read some reviews. And - the reviews were mixed. Some people say it's the best thing ever, and works like a charm! Others say it's crumbly and a bit messy and not worth the hassle. So I'm looking for a review or two (or more) of people I "know" who may have used a sweater stone. Good, bad? And are they really just for sweaters, or could they be used on other things? Is anyone in the know?
Scotch packing tape used to be my go-to de-linting solution, but I am now trying to be a better steward of my tape resources (still running low, waiting for a good sale to stock up). Because I didn't plan ahead and needed something for de-pilling ASAP I went to a regular store looking for a sweater stone, with no luck. I did end up buying the fabric shaver below, and while not perfect it does work remarkably well. I'm trying to decide if I should just stick with it, or give the sweater stone a whirl. (TIP: When looking for these items in an actual store, try the laundry section where they sell irons, ironing boards, etc. I tried the fabric/crafting section first and had zero luck.)
Or, if you have another de-linting, de-fuzzing, de-pilling solution, please share!
