    It actually works, not that I wasn’t expecting it to but I just had no idea this was even “a thing” to purchase. Received as a christmas present and straight away went to attack my old bobbly hoodie with it. All of the bobbles have gone, heinsight is a wonderful thing as I should have taken a photo before and after! Very sleek, lightweight and fun product to use.

    5.0 out of 5 stars It actually works!

    Golden Review Award: 4 From Our UsersI’d like to start by saying…I feel a bit betrayed….and silly! I didn’t even know this awesome wizardry product existed! Seriously a friend and I were talking about preparing school uniform for the start of the September term. She said I just have get my machine out and debobble Samara’s p.e jumper. The betrayal was an instant feeling. I knew EXACTLY what that meant…there was a way of saving my family’s clothes from the burden that bobbles were!!! I truly couldn’t believe what i was hearing. I mean Seriously, you mean to tell me I don’t have to pick some of the bobbles off and get angry in the process? So what I was hearing was I don’t have to replace things even though they appear new it’s just them burden bobbles things! I brought one instantly, then excitedly lined up their bits and worked away. I’m sure my partner was so done with me through the process because all he could hear was, ‘I can’t belive this I cannot believe this works!’ 🙂 People I am telling you to buy to buy it! I can 100% assure you it will bring you joy and satisfaction! The clothes come out like new! Not a bobbles in sight! So easy to use I even let my 9 year old have a go when she saw how much fun I was having and asked to join in : ). The battery life is fantastic, it’s been a few months and i haven’t had to replace them and this is a family of 6! my only con is that I didn’t know about it sooner! I’m still a little bitter about it. But you know what? I have one now 🙂 and I won’t live without it.
    Best thing I have brought in a long time! 5 full start ratings : )

    Golden Review Award: 11 From Our UsersThis is a nice light little tool for removing those unsightly tiny bobbles on worn, but not worn out, jumpers that make you look a bit old and sad if you carry on wearing them. I was a little sceptical but because it was very reasonable priced thought I’d give it a go. It actually works extremely well. It has rejuvenated a nice Gant lambswool top, almost back to new or nearly new condition. Easy to use, I used it on an ironing board with only light pressure systematically working round the garment concentrating on the worst areas on the front and inner arms. The fluff goes into a detachable little container which fills quite quickly so you need at least two or three empties for the whole garment. Some fluff needs to be removed from the head as well when you have finished and small tweezers or similar do the trick very well. Overall a good purchase and a handy thing to have.

    Golden Review Award: 2 From Our UsersGets all the chunky bits off. For the smaller finer bits you have to really push down on it, and go over the same areas repeatedly but gets most of them in the end.
    Looks nice and simple, easy to use and good for the price.

    Golden Review Award: 25 From Our UsersThe Philips Fabric Shaver was a device I did not realise I needed until I finally got it. It was extremely helpful in removing small cotton balls that were building up on my clothes and work shirts. Initially, I was searching for anything that could help me out, including fabric rollers with an adhesive side, which did absolutely nothing. I saw videos online of people discussing manually shaving their clothes, which has a high risk of damaging your items. And then I found out the Philips Fabric Shaver, which saved me a lot of hassle and made my clothes look new again. This is one of those devices that you won’t really need to use that often, but maybe around once every two months to maintain your clothes. The first time you do it, you’ll have an amazing result, but every time you do it afterwards, you have a higher risk of removing more and more fabric, which can lead to damaging your items of clothing.
    Don’t put too much pressure on the device when applying it to the clothing items.

    It’s quite easy to use, and has a protector, which is quite easy to remove, so that you don’t damage the blades inside. It’s quite a straightforward device, and I don’t have many recommendations for it. It does the job well, has a pretty large battery, and is small enough to be stored in your wardrobe. A very handy device, if needed, and I’ll keep using it again and again.

    Golden Review Award: 52 From Our UsersI had one of these bobble removers before, which served three years, although rechargeable; unfortunately, I misplaced the cable, rendering it useless. I needed it to remove bobbles from a mattress that developed in one area. Even though it has always been fitted with a protector, spending ages picking them off can’t be good long-term for the material as it tends to pull more than just the lint. As the top layer is also a gel hybrid, I’d rather not poke around with scissors. I want to minimise any unnecessary damage and extend its life. Of course, I also have clothing throws, cushions, and other garments that need a freshened-up. I split my reviews into three segments: Pro, med and con for ease of reading.

    * X2 AA Phillps branded batteries are already supplied, which is very welcomed. Although most have these at hand, there’s nothing worse than having to scour to find them and then discover they don’t work.

    * With slow circular passes, it has removed all visual bobbles restoring to like new on both fabrics and items. So far, I have used it on 15-20 individual garments taking 3-5 minutes per use to complete (around an hour), and the performance and power have been consistent.

    * Unlike rechargeable models, this is solely battery-operated, which has an advantage over internal batteries, all naturally degrade. In a sealed battery, the entire unit would need replacement instead of replacing external batteries periodically. Do I miss the rechargeable? Sure, but purely for convenience. However, it’s one less thing I need to worry about losing the charging cable and the internal battery inevitably failing. After using the supplied batteries, I always recommend high-quality batteries in the future.

    * The supplied brush, to me, has never been required since the shaver has an element of suction that I’d say almost all fabric is collected into the container and never behind the blades.

    * The amount of paper is unnecessary. Two thick pamphlets, one page, are the required basic information. After a quick read into the recycling, it went.

    * There is an element of upkeep, just like my prior. Usually, around three months, the blades become blunt and are less effective at doing their intended job. However, you can purchase these replacements third party. I haven’t come across official Phillips blades online for this particular model.

    * Does it feel like 16 worth of quality? I’d have to disagree. It feels cheaply made and plasticky. Here you are solely paying for the brand name. The build quality is unfortunate as this is something big brands usually tend to focus on, and it should be more noticeable, even a small amount of quality improvement over others. In this case, there isn’t. It feels very toy-like. Had a spare blade been given, it would have bumped the value for money. Other unbranded include these, including cheaper models.

    * The battery slide compartment and the lint collection are easy to catch simultaneously. Thankfully this doesn’t happen too frequently, though frustrating when it does occur.

    Is it better than any unbranded one? I’d have to say no compared to my old 9, as it performed equally effectively and had better build quality. Since most unbranded shavers, both rechargeable and non, are now around the same price as this Phillips, some are drastically more expensive and do the same thing. You may as well if you always want to be brand aware and don’t mind sacrificing the ability to recharge. I also read into the negative reviews before purchasing, and most complaints related to damaging fabrics. I’m unsure if they have had the blade to an incorrect level, such as without the guard attached for a material that would require, applied too much pressure when in use, or if the device has ultimately been faulty. Still, for me, I have tried different variations of items such as cashmere, cushions, gloves, scarfs, hats, an area of a mattress, socks and wools both flat and pleated with and without the guard with no issues or damage, as of yet. Overall, it works. I wouldn’t say it’s worth 16. If you spend a little time, you could find others cheaper and of superior quality.

    How I use:
    * Ensure the item is un-ironed to keep the pile in an unflattened state; otherwise, it won’t be as effective.

    * Attach the guard. I recommend delicate fabrics such as cashmere always to keep this on. Just because it may work well without one cashmere garment doesn’t mean it’ll work as well without the next.

    * Slowly glide and move the shaver in circular motions (like buffing). For those stubborn piles, apply a little pressure.

    * For items such as pleated/flat wool, you can use a mixture of the guard on and off. I find removing the guard to be more effective without having to spend more time doing multiple passes. I’d always recommend using it in an inconspicuous area first.
