................................... ........................ ...................... How to remove "pills" from clothing. When "pills" develop on clothing (small wads of lint) use a rough piece of steel wool, run it over the material and the "pills" disappear. Very easy to do. Will not harm material.

Sorry to sound slow here, is pills the same as piling? I hate that on my t-shirts and jumpers it makes them look real tatty, thanks for another great tip pal.

I never heard of this, but I'll try it. My Mom just went out and bought a little machine that cuts the pills off the surface of the fabric, that works really well too. I just did my sweater this morning.

Hmm, Never thought of that one. I have quite a few clothes with that bothersome problem. I usualy just take tape and dap at it to get them off, but this sounds like it would work better. What type of steel wool would I need?
