Re-Dye Lint Covered Black Clothes

When my knit black pants or dress get covered with lint, I don't throw them out. I simply buy some black dye, run through the washing machine and, presto, I'm the only one that knows that the lint has been dyed to match the clothing. Makes clothes look new every time!

You could save time and money by simply using a rubber glove (the kind you use when you wash dishes by hand). Slowly run it over your clothes, furniture, etc. Picks up and removes lint, animal hair, etc. in a jiffy.

Another good idea that may eliminate the need to dye your pants is to buy a battery operated lint remover. What a god-send!! I bought mine at JC Penny and it has seen more use than any other gadget in my home. It works so wonderful and keeps all my knits looking like new. It lasts forever, only needs two batteries which you will have to replace about once a year. Money well spent!
