I’m not sure what’s happening in your home but our couch has been getting a lot of action. The stay-at-home orders of 2020 really put that piece of furniture into overtime. The wear and tear is showing and the fuzz on the fabric cushions can almost feel like little spiky thorns. After many misses, I have finally found the best pilling remover for your couch.
I love our couch but it’s only about two years old and I’m a little disappointed at how the fabric has held up. This article says a sofa should last between 7 and 15 years. While I’m ready to replace our sectional that won’t be happening anytime soon, so I needed to find a shaver that would remove the pilling and get it back to being comfortable.
How to Remove Fuzz From a Couch
What I wanted was a commercial fabric shaver. A magical defuzzer that would return the cushions to new with one or two swipes. I’ve looked and it just doesn’t exist – at least not on Amazon.
I’ve used almost everything, including the popular Gleener, but I have finally found the best pilling fabric shaver from Popchose. It’s efficient, it’s rechargeable, it’s powerful and has a nice big shaver. It also comes with a detachable brush and a large compartment to catch all the fabric fuzz.
There is one small negative with this particular fabric shaver. The compartment that holds the couch fuzz will sometimes pop off when you attach the electrostatic brush to the handheld shaver. This is one small design flaw but if you empty the compartment first before attaching the brush you won’t have a problem.
What Causes Couch Pilling
When the fabric on your sofa starts to pill it just means the loose fibers from the material clump together. You might notice that the pills are a different color than the fabric on your couch. This is from dirt, dust and clothing fibers all tangled together. Time to shave it off.
Trust me when I say I want a soft couch to lay on so excuse me while I go remove all the fuzz from every cushion in our house.
Can I use this pilling remover for clothes?
YES! If you have a sweater that is hopelessly pilled, it is not a lost cause! Bring it back to life with this fabric de-piller! This also works on yoga pants and anything else that might have pilled.
