    Removing fluff from trousers

    Removing fluff from trousers 14th May 18 at 7:00 AM
    I have cotton chinos which attracted a lot of fluff. I have used a lint brush but that is largely ineffective; I used an entire role to remove about 1/4 of the fluff. Stuck it in the washing machine and they had no affect.

    Any tips?

    I'm wondering if a quick session in the tumble-dryer might help? Static might actuallly have aa useful function beyond science lessons.

    Ive got cats that shed like crazy and lint rollers get it off in no time for me, what kind of fluff are you attracting? !!!55357;!!!56834;

    Have you tried cleaning the lint roller / ripping new sheets off it? Or a traditional clothes brush?

    Main reason I have asked for alternative tips is because it's seemingly stuck to the trousers. Even went I use the tape roll, there are still many specs to a point when I wear them outside, they look terrible.

    I thought they may be a trick to remove them through some kind of static trick like a previous user suggested.

    Try the slightly damp rubber gloves rubbing trick, make sure you wash them inside out, I have this with a pair of DH work trousers so I hand wash them alone and air dry as everything seems to stick to them if i stick them in the washer.

    This type of roller works brilliantly https://smile.amazon.co.uk/wowgo-Roller-Reusable-Remover-Washable/dp/B0744CQWQZ/ref=sr_1_7?ie=UTF8&qid=1526661294&sr=8-7&keywords=sticky+roller&dpID=41b0w8AqfdL&preST=_S Y300_QL70_&dpSrc=srch
