? Why do

spools appear? Originally, a cloth is more prone to the formation of pellets, consisting mostly of artificial raw materials and with a low natural content. At the same time, the high cost of things and external quality do not reduce the risk of formation of spools, but the quality of twisting of the thread - yes, it affects. If the threads are not tightly tightened, in due course the gaps between them will grow and some of the threads risk turning out of the fabric, forming a defect.

The level of tissue elasticity also affects the formation of this defect. The higher it is, the more likely the appearance of spools.

How to remove

Specialists recommend first to process the back of clothing, then the sleeves and only then the front of the product. To combat the defect, special devices were developed, but you can remove the spools from clothes without a typewriter.

If the spools appear on things made of mohair or angora, the razor can not be used. If there is no special device, take an old toothbrush, duct tape or tape. It is very easy to remove pellets from angora - it is enough to hold a toothbrush along the fibers of the pile. In the opposite direction to clean the thing is not worth it, because you can spoil the thread. To fix the result, put the thing in warm water, add the vinegar, then dry it, avoiding sunlight. If everything is done correctly, the angora or mohair pile will acquire tenderness and softness.

An effective and sparing way to save clothes from spools is adhesive tape. Spend it along the fabric, eliminating most of the pellets. But you should not expect absolute success in this case.

If the spools are large and the fabric is smooth, you can use conventional scissors. This method is complex and time-consuming, besides there is a possibility that by one careless move it will ruin the thing.

For coarse and medium-sized woolen products, a method using a comb with small teeth is suitable. Remove the spools from woolen clothes in this way without any visible effects on the fabric. It is necessary to carefully comb the surface of the product. In this case, the movements should be in the direction of the filaments.

If your wardrobe does not have one or two things that already have defects, it is worth buying a special device - a machine that removes spools from any clothing.

The best option is to give clothes to professionals. They will not only clean it of dust and dirt, but also remove the pellets. The only disadvantage of this method is the high cost.

If you have chosen independent methods of combating pellets, act neatly, take your time, carefully working each centimeter of the surface.
