Lint removers are simple tools with a very important job: to remove lint and fuzz from clothing. They are especially important for anyone who wears clothing that attracts a lot of lint or by people who own pets which shed. Without these tools, some of us couldn’t even go out in public without hair and fuzz all over our clothing.

While some people may think that all of these tools are the same, we know that there is actually a difference between them that makes all of the difference in the world. That’s why we’ve decided to look for the ten best lint rollers and removers available. We’ve listed them below, along with a guide on properly removing lint from your clothing.

The 10 Best Lint Removers

#10 Zelta Double Sided Lint Brush


Anyone looking for an inexpensive solution for removing pet hair, lint, dust, and dandruff from their clothing has to give this brush a good hard look. That’s because this easy-to-use tool does a great job at removing these unwanted pieces of fuzz from clothing.

However, it’s not just designed to be used on clothes. It can also be used on bedding and upholstery, too. It’s dual-sided, so it can be used to pick up twice the amount of lint than conventional lint brushes. Another great feature is that it has an ergonomically designed handle that makes it easy to hold and use. All things considered, it’s a good brush for removing lint and fur.

#9 Anwenk Electric Sweater Shaver


Whether you want to remove lint from your clothing or you want to restore old clothing by shaving the material that’s beginning to pile up on its surface, then this electric lint remover might just be the solution for you. It’s a product that plugs into a nearby electrical outlet, so you never have to worry if you have batteries on hand when using this tool.

And since it has a 95-inch cord, it’s convenient to use in just about any room of the house. This product uses three stainless-steel shaving blades to efficiently and safely remove lint, fuzz and fabric pills off of sweaters, jackets, curtains, and upholstery. Effective and easy-to-use, this shaver is a handy tool for anyone to own.

#8 Es Unico Electric Fabric Shaver


Is fabric piling becoming a real problem? Do you have problems with lint and fuzz clinging to your sweaters or upholstery? Well, if you answered yes to either or both questions, then you will probably want to take a look at this fabric shaver. That’s because it’s designed to handle both of these problems.

All the user has to do is to plug in its electrical cord, and this unit is ready to get rid of lint, fuzz and fabric piling quickly and without damaging the fabric. Its 55-inch power cord makes it easy to move around the article of clothing while you’re shaving it and the unit comes with an extra blade for convenience. It’s a product that does a really good job at getting rid of fuzz and lint.

#7 Home-It Professional Clothing Shaver


Getting rid of lint and fuzz from clothing can be a real pain, so it’s nice to have a clothing shaver that can remove these unsightly things from all of your clothes, upholstery, and curtains. It uses a 2.5-inch shaving surface to safely remove all of the pills, lint, and fuzz that’s been bothering you for so long.

It has a nice, easy to hold handle that allows the user to move the shaver in any direction needed to eradicate fuzz. This product is so versatile it can also be used on carpets that are beginning to pill. Since it only shaves the top fuzz, it won’t damage the fabric it’s used on. And since it uses a power cord instead of batteries, it can be used anywhere with a compatible electrical outlet.

#6 Scotch-Brite Sticky Rollers


No one has ever said that a lint roller has to be complicated and in fact, sometimes the simple solutions are some of the best ones. No product proves this particular point more than this Scotch-Brite Lint Roller from 3M.

This product is the epitome of simplicity and only uses Scotch brand adhesive to quickly and effectively remove lint, pet fur, hair and other debris from clothing and furniture. And when it is completely covered in hair and can’t be used anymore, then all the user has to do is pull off the strip to start using a brand new one. This makes this a simple but effective tool in the fight against lint.

#5 McKay Fuzz Brush With Swivel Head


This product is designed on a style of brush that’s been around for years now. The reason it’s been around so long is that it’s very effective at removing lint. However, while this model might be based on this particular style of lint brush, the manufacturer’s have added a feature that makes it even more useful. And that feature is a swivel head.

This swivel head allows the brush to be used in a variety of different directions to remove pet hair, fuzz, and lint from all types of clothing and upholstery. It’s also reversible, so when one side is too hairy, the user can flip it over and continue to remove lint. The best part about this product though is that it can be bought as a single brush or in multi-brush packs.

#4 Gleener Ultimate Fuzz Remover


This product is based on a design that’s been trusted by dry cleaners and other garment professionals for quite some time. It’s a 2-in-1 device that can be used as both a lint brush and as a fabric shaver. This product can be used on a variety of fabrics including sweaters, coats, T-shirts, and hats.

It can also be used on upholstery, bedding, blankets, and even car seats. Since it doesn’t have blades and isn’t powered, this product also won’t damage fabrics and is safe to use on everything from wool and cashmere to cotton, angora, and pashmina. It can even be used on synthetic fibers such as spandex, microfiber, and polyester.

#3 Beautural Portable Fluff Remover


This battery-powered lint remover can be used on a variety of different fabrics and is designed to quickly remove lint, fuzz and animal hair. It provides 2-different speeds and 3-different shave heights, so it can be used on sweaters, upholstery, curtains, covers and just about anything else imaginable.

Its special height spacer ensures that fabric isn’t snagged or damaged while it’s being shaved, and also protects the user’s hand from accidentally touching the blade. This shaver comes with a protective cap, a cleaning brush, and an instruction manual, so the buyer only has to insert two AA batteries into it, and they’re ready to get to work.

#2 Nado Care Pet Hair Remover


This product is designed to remove pet hair better than any other product, and in that aspect, it truly succeeds. It doesn’t use batteries or any source of power to operate, yet is capable of picking up hair better than just about anything else. This lint roller also doesn’t use any sticky tape or adhesives in its design and contains all of the pet hair under its lid.

When the user flips up the lid to this device, they can then quickly and easily dispose of the pet hair at their convenience. It’s manufactured with a durable ABS body and is as easy to reuse as it is to use in the first place.

#1 Always Lux Professional Bobble Remover


Anyone searching for the best lint remover available need not look any further than the Always Lux Professional Lint Shaver. This product is ideal for removing pills, bobbles, lint, and fuzz from a variety of different fabrics. It can be used on clothing, sweaters, blankets and even upholstery.

Using a powerful 5-Watt motor and a 2.5-inch shaving head, it’s capable of making short work of most annoying lint problems. It uses both batteries and a power adapter and comes with a zipper storage case that can be used to store the unit when it’s not in use. Overall, this tool should be purchased by anyone looking to keep their clothing and furniture looking good.

How to Remove Lint From Clothes

People have been searching for ways to remove lint from their clothing for decades. That shouldn’t be surprising since lint and fuzz can make a person’s clothing look really messy. Fortunately, there are some techniques which can be used to take care of the problem. The following are the best ways to accomplish the task of removing lint from all types of different clothing.

Use a Lint Roller

Probably the best solution to this problem is the simplest one: the lint roller. This product has been used for a really long time and does a marvelous job at not only removing lint but also picking up fuzz and stray hairs (both human and animal). And the best part about them is they’re easy to use. If you’re using an adhesive-based one, all you have to do is pull off the tape and throw it away. If you’re using a velour type of roller, then simply run it under cool water or wipe it off with a wet rag.

Use a Clothing Shaver

These devices are extremely easy and are either battery-powered or plugged into an electrical outlet, so they save manual labor. The best thing about these shavers is that they are easy to run across the fabric and are very easy-to-use. Cleanup is also fairly easy since all the user has to do is open the unit up and shake out the shaved lint.

Other Methods

There are other methods of removing lint, of course, and I would be remiss if I didn’t mention them. However, just because the following methods are commonly used doesn’t mean that they’re effective. In our opinion, the best way to handle lint is by using a roller or shaver.

With that being said, the following items can be used in a pinch.

Fabric Softener SheetPacking TapeUse Velcro and a Rolling PinUsing a Disposable RazorBaby Hair Brush

Rubbing one of these across some fabrics can remove some of the hair or lint that may be on it.

While it’s not terribly effective and can be hard to manage, packing tape can be used to pick up lint in a pinch.

You can wrap Velcro around a rolling pin and it works pretty decently. But the problem with this method is the Velcro often has a tendency of just coming off of the pin.

If you have a clean, disposable razor you don’t mind ruining, you can always try to use it as a fabric shaver. It doesn’t work as well as an actual clothing shaver, but in some instances it may do the trick.

A baby hairbrush can also be used in some situations to remove lint and fuzz from clothing.

Overall, some of the above methods are suitable for use in a pinch, but if you really want to be serious about lint removal, then your best option is buying a good lint brush, roller or shaver. These devices are designed only for the purpose of removing lint and fuzz, and as such, do a great job.

One of the most gratifying things in life is to watch lint and pills disappear from your favorite sweater or blanket. To get that feeling, you need a lint remover with oomph that works on tough synthetic pills that may seem glued to your fabrics, with blades (under a shave guard), and a motor to get the job done.
Our shopping guide helps you determine which models keep on shaving until you’re done depilling your entire wardrobe and home. Take a look at our top recommendations, including our favorite, House of Wonderful Electric Sweater Shaver. We like it for its heft and power.
Considerations when choosing lint removers
Battery vs. corded
Battery-operated lint removers are great for on-the-go needs. Corded units are best when you need uncompromised power for big jobs. Having both may be most convenient. However, there are hybrid units with both batteries and power cord sources.
Waste receptacle
An easy-to-remove pill catcher makes the job go faster. The waste receptacle on most lint removers fills up fast. One with a clear, see-through catcher is a great choice because you can see when it needs to be emptied before the motor starts to slow down.
The handle is important if you plan on depilling large items, such as sofas, drapes, blankets, or multiple sweaters. After a while, your hand will tire, but a model with an ergonomically designed handle makes it easier to keep going.
Settings are useful to let you control how deeply the blades should cut, which largely depends on the fabric. A medium setting is appropriate for most sweaters.
Extra blades
Consider a unit that has blade replacements you can easily purchase. Some models come with two heads with different-size blades, such as one for clothing and a second for upholstery needs.

Along with settings, some fabric shavers have multiple fabric screens to put over the blades. For example, a lightweight screen with small holes is good for thinner fabrics, while a thicker, heavier screen with larger holes is better for thick fabrics, such as upholstery and blankets.
Lint remover prices
The size and whether it’s battery powered or corded typically determines the price of a lint remover. In the very low range of $3 to $13, you find pill-removing combs and petite and inexpensive depillers that are small enough to carry in a purse. In the $13 to $26 range are more powerful corded lint removers with larger shaving heads. Between $26 and $60, you find mostly corded models, some with more blades, and many with accessories, such as extra blades, cleaning brushes, and lint rollers.
Q. What types of fabric should I avoid using a lint remover on?
A. A lint remover with a shaving head is designed to work on somewhat sturdy fabrics. Keep the shaver away from silks, laces, embroidered cloth, and decorative and appliquéd fabrics.
Q. What are fabric pills anyway?
A. Knit and woven fabrics tend to pill. Those annoying pills are tangled groups of short or broken fibers that form a tight little ball and cling to the surface of the fabric. The pills form because of normal wear and tear, which causes loose fibers to get rubbed in different directions.
Q. Are pills and lint the same thing?
A. Both pills and lint are formed because of loose fibers attaching themselves to fabric. The difference is that pills are the little balls attached to the fabric. Lint attaches itself to fabric from an outside source, like when a wayward white tissue stuck in a pocket is washed and dried with your favorite pair of black pants. Pills need a tough shaving tool for removal, such as a lint remover. With lint, you need to grab a lint roller — or some tape in a pinch — to remove it.
Lint removers we recommend
Best of the best: House of Wonderful Electric Sweater Shaver
Our take: An impressive corded gadget with enough power to make pilled fabric look almost new again in no time.
What we like: Large shaver head with a handle that feels solid and comfortable in your hand.
What we dislike: Some users report an erratic, malfunctioning motor.
Best bang for your buck: Conair Battery-Operated Fabric Defuzzer
Our take: Powerful on two AA batteries and easy-to-clean product from a trusted brand.
What we like: Three settings to control the depth of the large shaver head on various fabrics. An easy-to-detach lint catcher helps with the cleaning. The ergonomic easy-grip handle is comfortable for longer steady use.
What we dislike: The blades and pill-collecting compartment become quickly clogged with pills, which means it has to be frequently cleaned.
Choice 3: Anwenk Electric Sweater Shaver
Our take: An electric shaver with a long cord makes it convenient to depill upholstery and drapes.
What we like: The USB-style cord makes it even more flexible to use, but you need an adapter for the wall. Electric means it delivers strong, stable power for large items.
What we dislike: It’s almost too powerful on fabrics, resulting in users reporting holes in their clothing.
