Bought this for a couple of my husbands jumpers, and have since used them on both my kids office style chairs they have at their desks, as the material was really 'bobbly'. I found the buster really effective.

I have used my bobble buster since 2010, and can now fully recommend the product. I was fully expecting it to loose its busting power rapidly but it did not (I remove the battery before storage though). It also works for synthetic fabrics such as work blouses with very thins "bobbles". I am extremely satisfied.

Washed with care my new jumper and when ironing it noticed it had gone a bit bobbly on side panels. I had used bobble buster on my husband's jumper with successful results so I reached for the bobble buster for my jumper. I only used very light pressure as per instructions but when it came across a slightly larger bobble it gobbled it up and made a substantial hole! Very sad and nervous to ever use it again!

Warning! Highly Addictive!”
Bought this little gadget after seeing other reviews on here as our couch cushions were beginning to look bobbly! As soon as I bought it I tried it out and was really pleased with the results - makes the couch cushions look much neater! Would recommend! 4 stars as batteries not included! ��

I had mixed feelings when purchasing this due to its 3.5 star rating, but I have to say it is definitely worth more than 3.5 stars! It's so easy to use and worked instantly! I used it on a wool skirt that had started to look a bit tired and bobbley and it has been revived thanks to the bobble buster! I would definitely recommend this to someone who needs a quick fix!

Brilliant for your bobbles!”
Absolutely brilliant, with a gentle hand, this removed the bobbles off a cardigan. Very impressed.

OK but put a hole in one jumper!”
I've used this on 3 or 4 jumpers and it was great, unfortunately it ended up putting a hole in another garment which was a bit annoying. I'm now using it very sparingly and lightly and the idea was to save clothes, not having to throw them away!

The Assistant in the shop told me these are fantastic. It's ok but be very careful not to press too hard or else you will have a hole in your jumper like me!

Beware the small print!”
by Roger Utley
I bought the Bobble Buster because I needed to "de-fuzz" a cashmere pullover. On the outside of the box it says "removes bobbles from all types of garments". But when you read the instructions inside the box you find that the small print contains "WARNING: Do not use on fine fabrics or weaves such as cashmere ..." So it's gone back. Shame on you Lakeland for printing misleading information on your packaging!

A note from the team: Thanks for taking the time to write the review. The bobble buster is suitable for all types of garments i.e. trousers, sweaters, t-shirts etc. However is not suitable for anything antique or if it’s made of a fine weave/fabric such as mohair, angora or cashmere. We’ve passed your feedback to the buying team.
Perfect - if you have inherited a battery warehouse”
Product functionality great. However, consumption of batteries appaling: from other reviews I was not expecting the batteries to last long. However, 2 brand new long lasting AAs wore out in under 5 minutes? really? I call that a massive hidden charge. Very disappointing.

A note from the team: Thanks for placing your review. It sounds as though you've had a faulty buster as I've just tested one for a lot longer than five minutes. I'll be in touch shortly to help.
Very useful, very pleased”
by Mrs Brown
Wasn't sure quite how this would perform, but have been very impressed. Worked wonders on wool dress and jumper that had become very bobbled through wear. Something I noticed was that it worked best on clothes that had a high content of wool - it struggled on a cardigan that was a blend, with cotton/viscose being the predominant fibres. Also be prepared to spend some time on very bobbled items, and you might have to go over the same area a couple of times to get the best results. Would highly recommend.

Bobble Buster's Best”
Works brilliantly - has rejuvenated a knitted dress and various jackets which had become bobbly. Followed instructions carefully and have had no problems. Highly recommended, well worth the money.

This is brilliant. I had a couple of jumpers that were favourites but nearly unwearable because of the "bobbles". A few minutes work with this gadget and they looked good again. Highly recommended

Yes, this is a gadget but it's one that is useful! A throw has been transformed, likewise a jumper which I was about to throw out. No problems using this at all. thank you Lakeland - another success.

I am amazed, now waiting for her to come home and do the other blazer she has on. in my opinion this is something one cannot do without well done lakeland

Worth every penny”
I bought a bobble buster after reading the glowing reviews online and I was not disappointed. It's a brilliant little gadget, easy to use and it's very efficient. I have an expensive coat which was covered in bobbles and starting to look a bit scruffy, but after using this product they've all gone. I love the fact that it collects the fluff in a separate compartment so it doesn't make any mess. Well done Lakeland.
