    Jessie: I use a lint roller -- and it might take tons of sheets! From then on, always wash your pants inside out!!

  • You might also try running a piece of duct tape over them, or perhaps packing tape. Worth a try!

    I use a cat hair remover brush. There’s also a cloth that works really well. Try on a discrete spot to see if it will damage sensitive clothes. Cloth never has but different brushes have different textures. Worked great when son threw a new terry towel in with my knit pants...

    I use packing tape!

    Tru rubbing it with a damp rubber glove. It works wonders with pet hair so it should work well with lint. Good luck!

    Hi Jessie,

    My name is Linda and I used duct tape for to remove lint from everything. You can either wrap it around your hand like a roller or you can put it flat on the material and then rip it off. I personally like the second way. I use all the time because those lint roller don't last long. A roll of duct tape will last "forever". :) Wishing you lint free pants.
