    I find the motorized clothing-sweater shavers easier to rehabfabrics and sweaters than the manual depilling combs.

    Bed Bath & Beyond have a razor just for things like that...collects in a little clear plastic holder that you remove and empty. See if you can check it out.

    there are battery operated shavers for this annoyance. I am sure you can get one at walmart or bed bath &beyond.

    I use a fuzz Buster the same as a razor what they're are explaining above. You can find them at Walmart ,Walgreens, craft stores and etc just about anywhere. Try to spend a couple of dollars on it don't get the cheapest one

    Those little balls are called pills and the are more common on synthetic fabrics. Wash your garments inside out and think about switching to cotton sheets. You do have to cut them off, it's the fastest way to get rid of them.

    You must be talking about those little pills some fabrics get.. the most ingenious idea is to use a pumice stone, works great and wont ruin your fabrics.

    I got my Evercare small fabric shaver at Target for $5.99, it works great & runs on two AA batteries, which last a long time. Just be sure to hold the fabric Taut as you run the fabric shaver over the clothing, or the shaver can take up the fabric along with the balls your shaving off, which can cause a little hole in the fabric (this happened to my shirt one time.) As long as you keep that in mind, I'm sure you'll be happy with the result!
