    Wore trousers last week for a change instead of jeans and after I washed them not sure if its because I had towel in same wash the trousers after drying look coated with white hairs though smell clean.


    I know you can often use brushes to get rid of certain things but would that work?


    Just asking as need them for interview Friday, I have another pair in wardrobe but think these ones look smarter.

    The sticky side of sellotape can help remove fluff from clothes but it is a long job!

    Thanks, well I just tried a hard hand brush and its helping but a awkward and time consuming job and don't know if it will damage the fabric.

    Try wearing a rubber glove, like a washing up glove, and wiping the fluff off. It works for pet hair.

    Damp hand or rubber glove

    A good clothes brush

    A lint roller

    All work but it will take a while
    if you lend someone 20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it

    I keep a lint roller (sort of sheets of sellotape on a roll with a handle) for precisely that purpose.

    Did you wash them good side out? It's always worth turning decent trousers inside out when washing to help stop this happening.
