Keeping Lint Off Clothing

Want to wash your fleece without getting lint all over it? Wash it alone in cold water. May combine two pieces.

I have some pants and jacket that are 96% cotton and 4% spandex in black and they seem to attract every little piece of lint in the world! I love them and want to wear them but every time I do I'm reaching for my lint roller. I have tried static guard and fabric protector but they have not worked? I'm stuck, can anyone help me with a tip?

Buy a piece of some very "fine" netting (tulle). I have been using the same piece for over a year and it works wonders. (05/28/2006)

These are the types of clothing materials that I tend to stay away from. If you notice this type of attraction (between clothing and lint) in the store, please be aware, they'll do this in your closet, as well. Best of Luck with yours. (06/03/2006)

Not sure how to "prevent" it but to remove lint from clothing I use one of those little round rubber things you use to get lids off of jars. They don't take up a lot of room in your purse (I actually keep one in my desk at work). Most of these have been for free from different businesses advertising. Have a couple from my credit union. I like the tulle idea too, I never thought of that, but bet it works great and would also be easy to carry. (06/06/2006)

Put your black items in a black cloth bag (die a pillow case if you have to) then throw the whole shebang into the washer - Presto!- clean stuff without the lint!

I never wash fleece or dress clothes with towels or denim and I don't have any problems with lint. I wash dark towels and jeans in one load, light towels and whites in another, and all the fleece and dress pants go in the medium or dark loads. My friend's mom taught me this trick when I was in High School - works like a charm! Even the inside of my sweatshirts stay soft. Now my only problem is cat fur on my work clothes. I put those on last thing before I walk out the door and try not to touch anything. (02/13/2011)
