How to remove lint from clothing

After wash and wearing your clothing can be covered with lint balls or fuzz balls. Lint on clothing looks unattractive and should be removed with a lint roller. If you don’t have a lint roller, use a disposable razor without lubricating strip to remove lint from clothing.

  • Lay the item on a flat surface.

Fix the garment with one hand.
Then go with the disposable razor without lubricating strip along the fabric in one direction and “shave” the garment very carefully, so that you don’t cut the clothing.
Delete the rest with wet hands and shake up the garment after this procedure.

  • Sticky tape can also help you to get rid of fuzz balls. Poke with a sticky surface to remove all the fuzz balls from clothing.
  • Finally, you can use a small pair of scissors to cut fuzz and lint balls that stayed on the clothing after the procedure.

To prevent forming lint balls, turn clothing inside out when washing and use a fabric softener to reduce the amount of static electricity on clothing. Read the clothing care labels that provide information how to wash your clothing properly.

How to remove rust stains from metal

Rust stains from metal can be removed easily with a mixture of lemon juice and salt. Rub the rust stain thoroughly and let the mixture soak for 5 hours. Wipe off the rest with a cloth.

Another means to remove rust stains from metal is baking soda. Make a paste of baking soda and water and apply the mixture with a toothbrush on the stain. Let it soak for a while, then wipe it off. Repeat if necessary.

To prevent rust, coat the surface with some wax. Wax protects the metal against water and avoids the problem of rusting.
