A cool pill-removing, pumice-esque stone that’ll help revive the clothes you always wear. Just brush this baby across your fave sweatshirts or sweaters and say buh-bye to bad pilling. They’ll look *almost* brand new in no time and you can avoid a trip to the dry cleaners.


BuzzFeed/Maitland Quitmeyer

BuzzFeed Shopping editor Maitland Quitmeyer loves this little tool! She said: “Like many of you, I’ve been living in sweats and PJs during this almost-year of WFH full time. And it’s made me revisit the state of some of my loungewear. Take for example, this college sweatshirt I wear all the time — as evidenced by the rather EXTENSIVE pilling all over it. So when I saw this pumice-esque sweater stone (it’s made from upcycled car windshield glass — how cool is that?!), I decided it was worth the try. We’ve featured electric pill removers (mostly the fan-favorite Conair one) many times, and they really work. But sometimes you’re looking for a little more detail or control — that’s where this stone comes in handy. I was able to navigate around the contours of the logo on my sweatshirt with ease, removing pills using the corner or the entire flat bottom in a few quick strokes. It truly took no time at all — the sweatshirt was done in mere minutes.” Read more of her Celsious Sweater Pill Remover review.

Get it from Celsious (A Black woman-owned, Brooklyn-based small business) for $17 or from Amazon for $11.16.
