All fabrics wear out over time, and wool, cotton and cotton-like materials have a tendency to “pill”. To perform this hack with perfection and make your garments look new again, you need to act carefully. This is how you de-pill with a disposable razor.

1. Spread the garment across a flat, hard surface, and pull the fabric taunt.

2. Shave the pilling way. Be very careful around buttons, stitching and seams, which can easily cut.

3. Enjoy an, as good as, new garment!
