Description

Are any of these “problems” real issues with the Philips GC026 fabric shaver? No, not really. Does it really matter to you if there’s a bit of lint left in the bottom of the bin or if you need to store it on its side when you put it away? Fabric shavers are a bit like electric shavers, though they have a rotating round head with a spinning blade and a guard to protect the fabric.

Since you don't have to worry about recharging or replacing batteries, it's also a great choice for those who travel a lot. Our verdict: Is the Philips Fabric Shaver worth it?Continue until all of the pills have been removed. They will then be stored in the shaver’s lint collector ready to be emptied. The device is well-designed in general. Its size and shape is easy and comfortable to hold in the hand, reducing fatigue and strain if you’re shaving larger pieces of fabric like a blanket or sofa. It’s also easy to turn on and off. While we hand-tested this specified bobble remover, and we'd say it's perhaps the best clothes debobbler on the market, there are other fantastic choices that have their own selling points as well. If you choose a good fabric shaver you will find that it can work wonders at restoring old clothes. If you compare the cost of a fabric shaver with the cost of replacing your clothes, it’s definitely worth it!

Fabric shavers can cut holes in clothes if you’re not careful. It’s best to practice on garments you don’t mind damaging at first until you have the right technique. We tested the Philips GC026 on multiple sweaters with varying amounts of pilling, a sofa and a hat to see if it really lives up to the hype when it comes to revitalising fabrics. Short answer: yes, it really does! Summary review: Does the Philips GC026 fabric shaver make a lot of noise when in use? We measured the device in a room with 30dB ambient noise level. Some fabric shavers are more powerful than others. A heavy-duty fabric shaver is better for tough fabrics, whereas a less aggressive fabric shaver is better for delicate clothing. What should you look for in a fabric shaver?An electric fabric shaver is easily the fastest and most effective method of removing pills from clothing. Once the device is charged up or you’ve inserted batteries, lay the fabric across a flat surface. The kinds of features your ideal fabric shaver will have depends a lot on what you will be using the fabric shaver for. Here are some things to consider: Ergonomic grip: Many fabric shavers are designed with a non-slip, ergonomic handle. This is a good feature to have as it gives you more control over the fabric shaver. Fabric shavers usually work by directing fuzz balls, or lint into a compartment which can then be emptied later. Our old hat had very obvious pilling from over three years of use and perhaps less than ideal storage conditions. The first pass of the Philips fabric shaver took off at least 80% of the pilling and lint on the hat. After that first pass we had to take a closer look at the fabric to spot any remaining bobbles. After a subsequent pass with the Philips our hat looked almost good as new.

Initially, we started with sturdier fabrics to get the hang of the gadget then we moved on to more delicate fabrics and synthetic fabrics. Among the range of fabric types we used the lint remover on were: Fabric shavers are especially useful if you own a lot of woollen clothing, as wool tends to collect lint balls much more than other kinds of fabric. What kinds of fabric shavers are available? Probably not. It’s not something that bothers us, anyway. A fabric shaver isn’t something we plan to keep out on display in our home. Our knitwear and sofa had a moderate amount of wear and pilling. The Philips made short work out of all of it. Fabric shavers are therefore a great way to keep your clothes looking fresh and stop them getting that worn-out look.

Top 5 Fabric Shavers

Merino wool: Another sturdier fabric, we next tested the lint remover on one of our favourite jumpers. We were pleased that it handled these natural fibres with ease. Adjusting the blade guard is easy. Twisting the guard changes the height between the guard and the blades, which allows you to work on more delicate fabrics such as wool as well as heavier, sturdier knits. A lot of people assume that once an item of clothing starts pilling and bobbles are popping up left, right and centre, it’s had it. That simply isn’t true—with a fabric shaver, you can make it look just like it did the day you bought it. Repair or replacements caused by faulty materials or workmanship as long as you include proof that the device is within the warranty period (such as a receipt). Safety guard: If you have children, you will want to be extra careful about the kind of fabric shaver you choose. Look for one with an automatic safety protection feature, or a well-designed safety guard if you have kids.

Easy to operate and clean: This shaver is battery-operated, so it's nearly ready to use right out of the box. With just one speed, you just turn on the electric fabric shaver and you're on your way. As for cleaning, you just turn off the motor, twist off the shaving head and use the included cleaning brush to clean lint out from around the rotating blade. Once you understand how the fabric shaver works and have a good technique, you should be able to use it carefully on expensive garments without worrying about damaging them. What can I use instead of a fabric shaver?Most bobble removers are electric, but if you want a manual fabric shaver, the Gleener Fuzz Remover is a great choice.
