11 New Uses For A Lint Roller (Besides The Obvious)

We all know a lint roller is great for getting fuzz off your clothes, but there other uses for this handy little tool. Below, some of our favorite alternative uses:

1. Tidy up your purse. Getting the lint, crumbs and little bits of dirt that might accumulate at the bottom of your purse is a breeze when using the lint roller to pick it all up.

2. Move over broken glass. Roll it over any broken glass to make sure you get every little shard.

3. Prep a wall before painting. You can get rid of any dust on the wall before painting, as well as prep the paint rollers so that any loose fibers don’t transfer onto the surface.

4. Gather up glitter. Glitter is nearly impossible to get off the wall, furniture, your clothes, etc. The lint roller can gather it all up in a snap.

5. Wipe down lampshades. Lampshades are a real pain to clean–after all, it’s not like you can throw them in the washing machine. A lint roller can collect a lot of dirt and dust that accumulates over time.

6. Clean up after the Christmas tree. Instead of lugging out the vacuum every day, use a lint roller to pick up fallen needles from your holiday tree.

7. Dust the drapes. The lint roller can help keep them dust-free in between visits to the dry cleaner.

8. Banish bugs. Simply roll it over the bugs and toss them stuck to the paper.

9. Clean ceilings. If you have a textured ceiling, a lint roller can get a lot of dirt and grease buildup over time; put a lint roller on an extender and roll all that mess right off!

10. Tidy up the car. Cars get dirty–crumbs, dust and other debris. While you can spend money at the car wash, you can also clean it up yourself with the lint roller.

11. Get rid of hair. Many women know the mess that comes after blow drying their hair–the wads of hair left on the bathroom floor in its aftermath. A lint roller can get pick up that hairy trail from the floor, your clothing or anywhere else in the home.
