We all know that a pumice stone is great for exfoliating feet and making them soft and smooth. But did you know that this beauty tool also does the same for your sweaters? Just gently rub the stone on your knits to remove pills.

I tried it this morning, and was pleasantly surprised. In less than five minutes, my favorite J. Crew cashmere sweater went from looking nubby to brand-new.

This one from Revlon is under $4 and is available at most drugstores.

Let me know how this home remedy works out for you.
