cheap product that works
on 2 May 2014
I previously owned a "JML Bobble Off Lint Remover" which cost £4.99. It broke after a couple of months, so I bought this one as a replacement (at £2.90). I'd like to provide a review by comparing these 2 products.
This particular lint remover is smaller than "JML Bobble Off Lint Remover", but I can say that it has better build quality and works better. The "JML Bobble Off Lint Remover" doesn't have a cover for the metal head part, and the battery cover is a bit tricky to open ( I was worried it might break by repeated opening and closing). This lint remover doesn't have this problem and it has a plastic cover. The front cap that's covering the blades can be removed for easy cleaning as well.
After receiving the product, I tried it on an embroidered canvas bag which had tiny bobbles where the fabric rubbed against the clothing. It worked very well by removing all of the bobbles instantly without damaging the fabric. I also tried on cotton socks which also worked wonders. Due to its size, it works better for smaller bobbles rather than very big bobbles in the fluffy jumpers (with those, I find a fabric comb would work better). The JML Bobble Off Lint Remover had the same problem.
Overall I'm very satisfied with the product, although I can't comment on its longevity at the moment, as I've only had it for a few days.
Update on 20/01/2017:
It's been more than 2 years since I bought it, and it's still working well, so I can say that it's long-lasting. Considering its price, I think it's very good value for money.
