Hi everyone =)
I know it’s been a while since posting, however we’ve been busy with the birth of our beautiful baby girl, Rebecca. She’s truly our pride and joy. It took a few weeks to become acclimated as new parents, and so far we are holding down the fort =) So for now, my posts will be short and sweet, but hopefully very informative =)
Today, I want to share with you how to pill (remove lint from) a sweater. I have this sweater that I absolutely love and I wore it to death BEFORE, DURING and now AFTER my pregnancy….it’s one of those stretchy knitted type sweaters that keep you warm! So, needless to say, after bazillion washings, it became embarrassingly full of lint. During my pregnancy, I didn’t care if it looked bad because you know how few comfortable clothes you have while pregnant. However, what’s my excuse now? So here’s what you do…..
Get yourself a NEW two-blade razor and start shaving…..going along the grain of the sweater. Using one hand, stretch the sweater a bit to prevent any nicks, and shave with the other hand. If the razor gets clogged with lint, just use a toothbrush to clean the blades. Easy peasy!
Here’s my linty sweater…embarrassing, isn’t it?
……Here, I am shaving away….
…………now the lint is all gone (yeah, I also have to restitch that loose thread on my button….my baby was big, what can I say!)
Happy lint removing!
