LA Good Question: Get Lint off the Sheets?

I have lint balls in my sheets (after washing my sheets separately from other clothes). Any ideas for removing lint balls from sheets?

Hi Brian--

This hasn't happened to us with sheets, but we've had our fair share of lint balls on sweaters. We notice is often happens if the sweater has any polyester in it, for some reason it balls up. We always stick with 100% cotton sheets and haven't had a problem. That being said, we only know of one way to remove lint balls, a lint shaver (simpler model is here) but it can be a lot of work, especially on an entire set of sheets....

Anyone else? Help with the attack of the lint balls?
