Things that can be of use:
- This article calls it "Hook and Fastener", but I think that it is better known as velcro.
Pull the fastener straight off the fabric--it should bring most of the
pilling with it. The small hooks of the fastener strip can damage very
delicate fabrics, so use this method sparingly.
This can promote fuzzing. From experience a lot of these methods are going to make the fabric fuzzy and promote pill formation in the future. Many people have this object laying around or attached to other items, it can be combed to remove fabric fibers after use.
Rubbing the Pumice stone on the fabric should remove the pills, alternatively many other rough objects work work for pill removal.
Electric shavers are suppose to work as well as safety razors, but I have never tried. And duct tape from experience removes too much, so a mild tape is better. Scissors are suppose to work, but I think that the stakes are to high if you make a mistake.
Brushing the pills off is suppose to work with a hard bristled brush. I have seldom used this, but I disagree about its usage.
Washing clothes less and washing them in cold water are suppose to reduce pills. Also, turning the clothes on the other way and using delicates bags are suppose to work.
