How to Remove Lint Balls from a Sweater

Fuzz and lint balls can take your cozy winter look from chic to cheap. Good news is there's a supereasy way to remove them with just a pumice stone. I'll show you how with pics and video. Woo hoo!

Before: Pumice stone waits to woo natty sweater dress.

Starting at one end, pull the pumice stone across your sweater (or any other knit or crocheted garment). Be sure to move in the direction that the knit is going.

Once you reach the other end, remove any fuzz that's collected on the pumice stone or loosely bunched up on the side of the garment.

Fuzz stuck to pumice stone and not your sweater. Yippee!

Repeat until you have pulled the pumice stone across the entire sweater. Oh yeah, I should've mentioned you need pumice stone and patience because this isn't really as fast as it is effective.

After: Same spot, now fuzz free!

If you're fancy, touch up the sweater with a lint roller afterwards.


In case that wasn't clear, watch my first Olivia Cleans Green youtube channel video, which explains how to do it.
