Life Hack: Emergency Lint Remover

Sometimes you misplace the tool you need to do a job and so you put the job off.  But if that job requires a lint remover, it is often something that can't be easily put off such as cleaning pet hair off the clothes you are going to wear to work that day.

Emergency Lint Remover 
That's where this handy little idea for an emergency lint remover comes in.  I was inspired by the sticky washable lint removers and thought what else is sticky that could do the job.  Sticky tape of course!  Simply wrap sticky tape around your fingers a few times sticky side out and drag or dab your fingers over the fabric.  When the sticky tape looses its stick, cut it off your fingers and wrap some more around your fingers.

You will need to do it a few times to get through most jobs so it doesn't replace a real lint remover, but it is good enough to get you out of a bind.  How effective it is will also depend on the material - I found it didn't do a great job with interfacing as interfacing quickly makes the tape ineffective, but for  clothing like work pants it does a good job.
