Wash your clothes in laundry bags if possible, for the sake of preventing pilling. If your clothes already had those fuzzy pilling, always keep in mind not to pull pilling off with your fingers. This may seem like an easy solution, but this actually may damage the fabric and even ruin it. Try the following 6 ways to remove pilling from your sweaters. 

1. Use Scissors. It can be a little risky, because if you slip you could actually cut your garment. You’ve got be careful. Lay down your garment flat and pull it taut to see all the pilling. Then, pull up the pilling and take your scissors and cut closely to the garment. Repeat this until remove all pilling from your garment.

3. Use Packing Tape. I wouldn’t recommend using this method unless you absolutely need to because it tends to unravel fibers.  Lay the garment on a flat surface and pull it taut. Lay the packing tape flat on the affected area. Gently roll upwards and out until the area is pill-free.

4. Use Sweater Comb. Buy a small comb designed for removing pilling from sweaters, called sweater comb. Lay your garment flat and pull it taut. Then gently brush until all the pilling is gone. Remember not to push down too hard in case damaging the fabric.
