I went mushroom hunting last weekend, and my flannel shirt got full of burdock sticker pieces. How do I effectively remove all the burdock seed pieces?

Should I wash them with the seed pieces in it to get it out?

    Tweezers -- the burdock has hooks like Velcro (or vice versa), and tumbling in a washer or dryer will just tangle more fibers. Oct 14, 2018 at 22:04

  • Brush them off with a hard brush.

Perhaps you could use a comb to remove them. I've never tried it though, as I enjoy removing them one by one. If you try it, tell us how it goes.
