I've used these types of shavers for years, so I'm not a newbie to how they work. This one is just a lot more powerful, and the face holes are a bunch bigger, when I compared it with my older shavers.
Since the face unscrews to allow for better clean-out, it would be great if Remington offered a smaller-holed replaceable face for lightweight material.
Here are my experiences:
- I really like how heavy it feels in my hand. It's good to have a device that's nice in the hand and wouldn't slip out suddenly.
- It looks great. The blue is a nice touch and the transparent fabric shavings holder helps to give me a good idea of when to toss out the trash.
- The transparent shavings holder has a section that collects all the shavings. Most of the time, the shavings do not fall out when opening to toss out. It's a wonderful little detail that can help prevent many times when you'd have to bend down to clean up the mess.
- The bigger holes in the steel shaving cover allows the lint, etc to collect better.
- In terms of performance, my sweaters, socks, and lint on my clothes have virtually vanished.
There are more expensive, bigger and stronger fabric shavers, but this Remington fabric shaver is inexpensive and does the job. If well taken care of, this fabric shaver will last a while. If not and even over time, the fabric shaver will eventually be of no use. Still, given the price and performance, it's a must buy for anyone that has lint and fabric problems. Buy with confidence!
P.S. Be careful how much pressure you apply to your clothing/fabric. Make sure the intended area is flat, so that no drapes get stuck in the blade. With any fabric shaver, there is a potential for holes and damage, especially if not handled carefully.
We have all been there and pulled at something we shouldn't have (usually light knits, woven linens) it just made it worse...DO NOT use this device for those types of clothing. If you're worried about clothing being ruined if you pull the knots/balls by hand, don't use an electric device to do it for you.
This device works just like men's shaver: there are cycling blades inside that shave the material sticking up. If the blades stop rotating, screw off the cover and use a pair of tweezers to clean out the inside. The blades act as a fan and fans the lint balls into the collection chamber but if there is too much in the collection chamber or a long thread is tangled in the blades, they will stop rotating. It doesn't mean it's broken, just clean it out.
With the few articles of clothing I've used this on, it's already paid for itself. I'm just disappointed that I didn't buy this sooner! Don't let the negative reviews get you down....try it!
I've had this unit for a couple months now and have used it on a variety of fabrics, including fleece, sweaters, and even my sofa. After using the shaver on several items without incident, I decided to grab an old sock and see if I could make this unit eat a hole through the material (as some reviews state). I pressed fairly hard on the sock but aside from trimming off all of the little "nubbies," the unit did not penetrate the material any further.
I'm still on my original set of batteries and have done probably 20 or so sweaters, along with various other items. This unit does exactly what it should and I'm pleased with my purchase.
