A Better Solution

The Ultimate Fuzz Remover

Kit2_11_cropSweater pills and fuzz balls are a fact of life. Every single one of us has experienced the disappointment – and frustration – of pulling out an almost-new knitted garment from the closet and seeing those unsightly pills. Even the most expensive kinds of knits are susceptible! And what about that favourite sweater, the one that used to make you feel so great… you simply can’t part with it, so now it’s become weekend-wear only.

At Gleener® we understand and share your frustration. In fact, the Gleener was born out of that frustration.There are other products out there designed to de-fuzz, de-pill, de-lint — but each has it’s limitations. We have designed a better solution to de-pilling — all without pulls and tears, environmentally unfriendly batteries and small motor burn-out, or weird odours and gritty residue. Gleener is easy to use and is the only product on the market with three fabric-sensitive edges, so you can use it to remove pills and fuzz from almost any kind of garment. Plus — it actually works!


Gleener has three numbered edges

— all clearly marked on the bottom. Each carefully designed edge targets a different kind of pill — allowing you to customize the Gleener to every item you want to renew. And they are a cinch to attach and remove. Click here to find out more about how and when to use each in order to get the most out of your Gleener.

The Edges

Unparalleled Depilling

Gleener® is the only depiller on the market that has 3 detachable, fabric-sensitive edges, so you always have the right tool for the job. Each edge is designed to tackle a different size of fuzzball, which generally are determined by the kind of fiber. Heavy wools produce large pills, fine cashmeres produce smaller pills. But each fiber — and in fact each pill! — is unique.

When determining which edge to use for your garment, these suggestions should be used as a guideline. Begin with the edge recommended for a given fiber, and if you are not getting the desired results — try a different edge!


Edge 1

Heavy duty Edge 1 is for large, bulky pills. It is best for use on wools and wool/synthetic blends. Watch Edge 1 in action, click here.


Edge 2

Edge 2 is for medium-to-large pills. It is best for use on 100% synthetics and blends, such as acrylic, rayon, polyester and fleece; natural fibers such as cotton, cashmere and merino wools. See Edge 2 in action, click here.


Edge 3

Fine, delicate pills and fabrics should only be Gleened with Edge 3. It is best for use on silk blends, fine cotton, natural and synthetic blends with elastane, viscose/rayon, nylon and Spandex™. For best results, always use Edge #3 on an ironing board. Watch a demo of Edge 3 in action, click here.

How to Gleen

As Easy as 1-2-3


Using the Gleener® couldn’t be simpler. Once you have chosen your edge, you are ready to start Gleening!

Step 1

Attach your chosen edge by gripping the lip of the edge and matching the flat side to the anchor on the handle. Apply slight pressure until it clicks into place.

To remove the edge, just push n’ pull — push the black, easy release button while simultaneously pulling gently on the edge. To see a video of how to attach and remove the edges, click here.

Step 2

Now you are ready to Gleen! Simply lay the item flat, and with one hand hold the fabric taut. With your other hand, use gentle but firm strokes to remove offending pills. Always remember to Gleen in the same direction as the grain of the weave.

step3Step 3

The Gleener will quickly and efficiently remove pills from the fabric. These unsightly fuzz balls will pile up, so periodically remove the accumulation from the edge.

Repeat as necessary. Finish with the velvet lint brush, and enjoy your newly revitalized garment!
