How do you get fuzz out of velcro closures on coats

GailCynthia HAmber Ann Rolak-Wilson


I washed my winter coat, now it has fuzz in the velcro closures. Is there an easy way other than picking it out by hand?

    I used another older piece of velcro to "brush" across it to get the fuzz and lint off my good velcro. If you don't have any extra velcro, you might use a small wire brush or buy a small amount of velcro at a retailer like Walmart. They have small amounts of it in the craft section. I bought some and sewed it on my coat

    I also use a toothbrush. Once I was in such a hurry that I just used a piece of gorilla tape and it worked fairly well.

    Sticky tape like duct tape works well. I've also used a lint brush.

    A small metal crochet hook like ones used for cotton threads will catch the lint fibers & pull them out quick & easy.
