Nothing can ruin the look of a good fabric like pilling. Whether it’s on your favorite sweater or on the seats of your upholstered couch, pilling is an inevitable part of life. After all, it means your products are getting the love they deserve! That being said, a nuisance is still a nuisance. Thankfully, there is a quick solution that can keep your favorite textiles looking as good as new: a fabric shaver. As tempting as it might be to sit there and pick off the fuzz one by one (who hasn’t done this before?), a fabric shaver not only speeds up the process, but also prevents you from damaging those textiles in the process. From editor-tested favorites to Amazon bestsellers, we rounded up 10 of the best fabric shavers on the market today. Here’s to a pill-free home!

Easy to hold and equipped with six precision razor blades, this pick is designed to be powerful yet delicate.
