Clothing Resale Tip: I Shaved My Pants. 

Boyfriend: So, what did you do this morning?

Me: I shaved my pants.

Huh? Yes you read that right! I shaved my pants! I know what you’re thinking, but I’m not crazy (ok maybe a little, just don’t ask my ex’s ok?).
I’ve been so busy with taking pictures, writing descriptions, posting listings, and shipping orders that I haven’t posted anything here lately. I realized that yesterday when I got my new business cards in. So this morning when I grabbed the first item in my “needs to be photographed” pile, I gave the pants a glance and saw some minor pilling. Normally, I would just add that in to the description of the item’s condition, but then I remembered something so cool that I had heard. Shave them. Lightbulb came on for “perfect new blog post” in my head. So here we go!

Step 1 Lint roller and Razor

Tools for shaving your clothing that is pilling

Gather your supplies.

You will need so much, just kidding it’s only 3 things!

  1. The clothing item that has pilling.
  2. A brand NEW, never used, disposable razor. Yes new. You don’t want soap, rust, or little hairs on your clothes. Yuck.
  3. A lint roller.
  4. Clean flat surface. Ok I know I said 3 things but does this count? Technically does the item count? Is it only 2 things?

Step 2

Lay the item, mine was a pair of pants, flat on the table.

Step 3

Lightly shave the fabric where you see the pilling (little gathered balls of fabric). Don’t be scared! Just start with light pressure and see how it goes, you can always add pressure if nothing is happening.

Step 4
Take your lint roller and clean off those pesky pills!

Step 5

Brag about how you made your pants look new again!

I hope this helps someone because it helped me! It’s actually pretty fun, and I felt good after. I know, it’s the little things!
