How do you clean velcro?

How do you get fuzz balls and hair out of velcro...the velcro on my DD's bibs is full of fuzz balls. I'd appreciate any ideas....

  • I do the toothpick thing. You can also try an old toothbrush.

    Also, keep the velcro together when you wash it.

  • Well really, sometimes it's just easier to toss them and pick up some new ones. If it's a bib you love I found if you have the patience you can sit with a tooth pick and run it in between the velcro fibers. You have to individually pull each of the hairs and fuzballs out by hand. The way to avoid this to begin with it to wash the bibs by hand in the kitchen sink and hang them to dry as being in the dryer causes the most damage to it. But really who has time to do that?

  • I run a ballpoint needle along the loop rows, pulling the fluff and hair up where I can pick it out with my fingers.

  • I take a comb (not a real fine-tooth one) and it works well.
