It's not often that I review things here on my blog, but I've been meaning to do it more often. This year at TNNA I got to connect with a great new company - Lilly Brush, Co. They make these magical little brushes that take pills, pet hair, dust, and even dirt off of your clothing and upholstery.
The original Lilly Brush has been marketed to those of us in the knitting world as the better pill-remover. Unlike a sweater shaver or sweater comb, it isn't rough on and doesn't damage the fibers. Sometimes if you get too close with a sweater shaver on natural fibers, it can remove chunks and make weak spots that turn into holes over time. Not so with the Lilly Brush, which as soft nylon bristles and works maybe even better than my favorite sweater comb.
I decided to try it out on some other uses around my house. I used the brush to clean cat hair off of my clothes and some velveteen chairs in my studio. It removed the pet hair faster than a lint roller, and more efficiently. It feels good that I don't have to peel six sticky-paper sheets off the roller every time I need to get yellow Russie hairs off of my chairs! Not to mention that the Lilly Brush, by nature of being reusable, will save me money and save the environment some trash.
I immediately wrote the company saying that I loved their product, and they asked if I'd like to review their other brush -- the Be Forever Furless brush. So they sent me one in the mail. As you can see, the BFF brush is larger and styled less compactly than the original Lilly Brush, which is about the size of a pencil case. It's marketed specifically towards getting pet hair off of your furniture, so I decided to give it a real challenge and try it out on the most hairy object in our house: the cat bed.
The BFF brush gathers your pet hair into these neat little rolls that clump on the sides of the brush -- you can just peel them off and keep going. And I did! I cleaned the whole thing with about two passes. Imagine what it does on standard levels of cat hair (or dog hair) furniture coverage!
And now for the BEST part! Thanks to Lilly Brush, Co., I am able to give away one of each of these brushes to a lucky reader. That's right, I have TWO brushes -- the original Lilly Brush and the Be Forever Furless brush to give away.
To win, simply leave me a comment saying which one you would use most, and what you would use it on first! (Everybody has that super-pilly sweater or ultra-hair covered chair in their house, come on, share!) Contest ends on June 10th.
This giveaway is now closed! Thanks to all who entered -- winners announced soon!
