Review of Home-it Fabric Shaver (SM-1903 Fabric Lint Remover)

Review of Home-it Fabric Shaver (SM-1903 Fabric Lint Remover) -- watch the video

In the video I used the product on a blanket to clean up salt, on a towel, and on a sweater.
-Did fine on picking up salt, but a lint roller did better.
-Removed loose threads on a towel.
-Did OK on the sweater in removing pills.

-Body is durable
-The blades are flimsy

Battery compartment
-Poor quality

-Higher then other similar products on the market

Removing particulates from fabric
-Lint roller does a better job

The instructions indicated "Before using the fabric shaver, test on a hidden area of the fabric to be shaved."  Some fabrics do not have a hidden area that can be tested.

Very loud, in a quiet room the dB level was 75+dB with it on. I got as high as 95+dB when being used on fabric.

I received this product for free in exchange for a review.

Syma S107 Helicopter Review


  • Small
  • Easy to use (on the box it says for ages 14+) This helicopter could be safely used by those as young as 8 years old.
  • Low price
  • Easy charging: Charge by plugging the remote into the helicopter or use the USB charger
  • Robust: I have crashed it several times due to air-filters pushing the  helicopter into a wall or I was trying to get the helicopter too close to an object.


  • Indoor use only: even the smallest breeze can move the helicopter where you don't want it to go.
  • About 5 minutes flight time on full charge
  • Has no lift power:  It can lift itself without any problem, but if you add more than one small pen in weight it will not get off the ground.
