Need to learn how to keep lint off a wool coat? Here are a few simple steps you can follow to keep your wool coat lint-free. This how-to is also ideal for those who are considering purchasing a wool coat in the near future. These tips will keep your coat looking spotless and new.
To keep lint off a wool coat, you will need:
- A lint brush or tape
- Anti-static spray
- Dryer sheets
- Keep the lint off by using anti-static spray. You can find this spray at stores that sell laundry or cleaning items. Follow the instructions on the spray before using it. Make sure that it’s safe to use with wool fabrics.
- Remove the lint with tape. Apply clear plastic tape to the areas you want to remove the lint. Hold it for a few seconds and gently remove it. The lint should appear on the tape and off of your wool coat.
- Spray the coat again with anti-static spray. This will further prevent lint from getting onto your wool coat. Allow the spray to dry on the coat. Reapply if needed to keep both the static and lint away.
- Use a dryer sheet if you don’t have any anti-static spray. The sheet will help prevent the static. This will temporarily prevent lint from attaching to your coat.
Some coats will need to be sprayed weekly or monthly, depending on how often you use your coat. Hand washing is the best way to keep lint off your wool coat. Keep a lint roller or brush on hand for quick touch ups.
