Lilly Brush- The Sweater Rescuer Review & Giveaway


As soon as I heard about Lilly Brush, I knew I had to try it.  The idea is super simple.  A brush to save sweaters by removing those nasty pills that develop.  Why, oh why, have I never heard about this brush until now?!  Honestly, I have gotten rid of sweaters, because they were infested with pills.  Mind you, there was nothing else wrong with those sweaters.  But I didn’t foresee any way to remove those pills.  I’ve had newly purchased sweaters develop pills after the second time I’ve worn it.  Ahhh!!!  This simple Lilly Brush has forever changed my sweater collection.

Let me show you.

The brush is simple.  Nothing special, really.

All it takes is literally brushing the sweater to remove the pills.  The little fuzz balls either fall off or clump together on the brush.  It’s like a hair brush for your sweater!

I decided to give this simple tool the ultimate test.  I have a black cardigan sweater that is over 20 years old.  It is riddled with pills, it’s awful really.  But I’ve held on to this sweater through the years for sentimental reasons.  Could the Lilly Brush help this much loved sweater?  If I didn’t love it, I would have gotten rid of it years and years ago.

As you can see the Lilly Brush brought back new life to my beloved sweater.  The right side is how the sweater has normally looked, while the left side has been worked over with the brush.  Most pills have been removed, and if I was truly diligent I could keep at it to remove even more.

Quick Facts about Lilly Brush:

* Works on all natural fibers including cotton, wool, cashmere, hemp and alpaca.
* Lint remover, pet hair remover, and sweater pill remover!
* Is made to last for years.

Now keep in mind the brush does not prevent pills from forming on your sweater.  Those darn little buggers are still going to appear out of thin air.  But at least you have a weapon to combat those nasty sweater wreckers!

Still on the lookout for a stocking stuffer this Christmas?  I highly recommend purchasing a Lilly Brush for the ladies in your life.   Every lady ought to have one of these!
