If you polled my friends and family to ask what I spend the most money on, I imagine they would unanimously vote for clothes. Even when I swear I’m not buying clothes, I’m constantly shopping for them, much to my wallet’s chagrin. I’m still on an intern budget though, so I’m serious about clothing care and making my items last as long as possible. I read care labels religiously, I launder my clothes with cold water to save energy, and I line dry basically everything to prevent shrinkage and wear. 

Being the full-time clothes horse/part-time laundry geek that I am, it came as a shock that I’d never even heard of a fabric shaver until Lifestyle Editor Ella Cerón mentioned it in a roundup of Reddit-approved home hacks. Wear and tear is inevitable, even for the most diligent clothing caretakers, because we stress the fabric every time we wash and wear them. Therefore, any quick-fix solution for years of textile distress has my attention, and this little fabric shaver fits the bill. 

The one she highlighted, the Beautural Fabric Shaver, costs $22.99 and has over 700 five-star reviews on Amazon. And the best part? Right now, it’s marked down by a whopping 62 percent for Black Friday. Refreshing your entire wardrobe doesn’t have to come with a hefty price tag: This nifty little device can be yours for just $8.82, so you can save your hard-earned dollars for more clothes. 

Here’s how it works: The Beautural Fabric Shaver has three heights, which you adjust for a close shave on whatever fabric you’re treating. It’s handheld and battery-powered, and you glide it over your garment while the blades spin to gently cut off pills. It’s really that easy, and it works on everything, from wool coats and sweaters to bedding and furniture to make textiles look new again

At this point you may be asking yourself about the value of such a seemingly-trivial device. Breaking out the scissors to cut off pills might seem like the obvious solution here, but doing so can actually cause the fabric to unravel more. I also love how unexpectedly sustainable this product is. Anytime you can breathe new life into old items instead of replacing them is an environmental win in my book.

If a fabric shaver still seems like an overly-indulgent purchase to you, perhaps the ratings will convince you. It has more than 950 reviews on Amazon, 73 percent of which are five stars. 

One reviewer said “It is so so satisfying, it’s almost become a hobby now.” Another reviewer called it a “miracle worker,” saying: “I had a new couch that had horrible fabric and was only one month out of warranty. This little gadget made it look like new again!” 

Of course there are other fabric shavers on the market, but you’re unlikely to find as great of a deal as this one right now. Hop to it and grab one for the fashion lover in your life before the sale ends!
