Gleener Fuzz Remover Kit

A Better Solution: The Ultimate Fuzz Remover is now available at Yarns By Design!

Sweater pills and fuzz balls are a fact of life. Every single one of us has experienced the disappointment – and frustration – of pulling out an almost-new knitted garment from the closet and seeing those unsightly pills. Even the most expensive kinds of knits are susceptible! And what about that favourite sweater, the one that used to make you feel so great… you simply can’t part with it, so now it’s become weekend-wear only.

At Gleener® we understand and share your frustration. In fact, the Gleener was born out of that frustration.There are other products out there designed to de-fuzz, de-pill, de-lint — but each has it’s limitations. We have designed a better solution to de-pilling — all without pulls and tears, environmentally unfriendly batteries and small motor burn-out, or weird odours and gritty residue. Gleener is easy to use and is the only product on the market with three fabric-sensitive edges, so you can use it to remove pills and fuzz from almost any kind of garment. Plus — it actually works!

Gleener has three numbered edges
— all clearly marked on the bottom. Each carefully designed edge targets a different kind of pill — allowing you to customize the Gleener to every item you want to renew. And they are a cinch to attach and remove. Click here to find out more about how and when to use each in order to get the most out of your Gleener.

Gleener is all about convenient garment care
— so it is actually two products in one! The attached lint brush picks up pesky pet hair in a flash, and can be used to finish any de-pilling job beautifully.

Product Features: Patented Design
Gleener® — The Ultimate Fuzz Remover — works like magic to quickly and easily remove fuzz, pills and lint from most woven or knitted fabrics. Everything from sweaters, t-shirts, pants, jackets, and scarves to cushions and upholstery will be completely revitalized!
