I sort my wash very carefully, but it still comes out pilly! I use a good detergent, Tide powder and liquid, but it still gets pilly. Why?
Some fabrics just get pilly.
Turn your clothes inside out before washing and that will help.
Turning the clothes inside out will help. Also, are you overloading the machine? Try washing smaller loads of the worst offenders, and see if it cuts the pilling.
Check the labels to see if the most affected pieces of clothing are made with acrylic fibers. I refuse to buy anything with acrylic because just wearing it can cause fuzzballs.
I think most "good" detergents have enzymes in them that can actually break down the fabrics. Try washing the items that are prone to pilling in Woolite which i believe is designed for things such as this. Good luck!
