Neuter your knitwear

Here in Ireland, it is autumn. The leaves have turned,  out come the heavier clothes, it's noticeably darker out, and I even had to wear gloves the other day. We really needed our sweaters this past week, and it was a perfect opportunity for me to try my new gadget. 

LIDL had the AquaPur lint remover in stock a couple weeks ago and I'm glad I got one. I've already tackled some of my favorite scarves and cardigans, which were looking really old since they were covered in little lint balls. I also tackled fiance's sweater which was in a really bad state all over {below}, and really does look like new. 

Lint removers are great for any fabric garment {not just knitwear} which after some wear, builds up a lovely collection of those little lint balls, which usually form around cuffs, under arms and around lapels.

  1. oh that does make a heck of a difference. I did always wonder if those little gizmos made a difference. It does seem to do a better job that sellotape is what I used lol. As you are in Autumn we are in spring. As you have cooler weather we have longer days and slighty warmer weather.

  2. I was in the same boat. My friends mom had one and I thought they couldn't possibly make that much of a difference, but all my bally stuff looks brand new now! I have converted.

    I am envious of the southern hemisphere, but I'm too used to having cold Christmas'. I don't think I could hack eating turkey on a hot day.

  3. I worked in a knitwear shop and we used disposable razors, they work really well!

  4. When I think about it, it's blindingly obvious how much sense that makes. I'll have to try that Liz!

I do enjoy hearing peoples spin on things. So whether you like it or lump it, bring it.
