Nothing ruins an outfit faster than having a bunch of lint all over it. You can hectically spend 15 minutes rolling over it with a lint roller to eliminate it before it starts.  Here are some secrets to beat lint. Grab a Dryer Sheet. It makes sense that dryer sheets, with all their amazing anti-static laundry properties, would have the power to remove lint from your clothes even when used outside of the dryer. All you have to do is rub the surface of your outfit with a single dryer sheet and voila: You're fuzz-free! Speaking of dryer sheets, toss your shirt into the dryer with a clean dryer sheet and run the "air-only" setting to rid your clothing of all that lint in a pinch. Combat the fuzz ahead of time by washing the garment inside-out, to bypass sticky lint problems and minimize shedding. Distilled white vinegar is great in removing lint. Add a cup of it to your laundry during the final rinse cycle to keep lint at bay. Believe it or not, that pumice stone in your bathroom can do a whole lot more than just smooth your skin. Next time you're faced with a pilling sweater, try rubbing it with your pumice stone to remove the balls and take any flecks of lint with it. When all else fails, you can always count on your trusty hairdryer to get you nice and lint-free on the fly. Simply dampen a new dryer sheet and gently rub it on your fuzz-covered garment while simultaneously blowing it with the cool setting on your hair dryer to achieve a crisp-looking outfit in seconds.
