Lilly Brush

I was recently sent the Lilly Brush to review.  The Lilly Brush is a portable brush with bristles specially designed to remove pills, lint and pet hair without damaging delicate fabrics or sweater weaves.

The Lilly Brush uses the phrase "Save Our Sweaters" as their slogan.  They claim to understand just how maddening it is to part with a favorite cashmere, wool or cotton sweater simply because normal wear has left it covered in unsightly pills.

The brush is rather compact.  The brush itself has a small handle that fits nicely in the hand.  The brush head is a long thin strip of soft bristles with a second piece that slides over the head to cover and protect the brush when not in use.  Closed up it almost looks like a travel toothbrush case.

The brush is marketed to save sweaters from those unsightly pills that comes from regular wear.  When I used it for that purpose, I didn't see too much difference in my sweater.  I had to apply a lot of pressure and really work at it to remove any pills.  It didn't do too much to save my sweater.  I then used this on a couple different types of fabrics and did see some improvement in removing lint (not pills).   

The Lilly brush worked to remove lint from a poly-blend dress pant and a cotton tee.  Because of its portable size, I can easily tote it in my purse, which really comes in handy when I need to de-lint at work.    The Lilly brush also worked REALLY well to remove a small patch of pet hair from furniture.

The Lilly Brush retails for $12.95.  I think they should reconsider their marketing, as it worked well for every BUT saving my sweaters from pills and fuzz (which is what it is marketed for).  If you are someone who is constantly battling with pet hair on your clothes and/or furniture, or just want something to stash in your purse to remove lint, it is a good alternative to disposable lint rolls.

The Lilly Brush is available in classic red and graphite gray and can be purchased HERE.
