Philips Fabric Shaver GC026/80 Black $14.96 + Delivery @ Amazon AU ($0 with Prime/ $39 Spend) or Myer ($0 with $49 Spend)

1170

It seems Amazon price-matched with Myer. Best price based on 3Camels. Never used it but reviews look good, just be careful with some clothes as it can pull the thread and leave tiny holes.
Bought one to use up my spare eneloops.

      Same here, I hope it really looks that shiny in real life!

  •  

    How does this compare to Daiso?

    •  

      I have only used razors but guess Philips would last longer?

    •  

      Daiso one sucks and didn't last too long for me.

      I've got this one but white and blue so not as fancy from Target a while ago. It was a similar price and I can vouch that it's a quality product.

      Good to know, have you ever got any damage on the clothes as mentioned in some reviews?

      • +2 votes

        Nope, not at all. As soon as the buildup starts again I just run this over the clothes and it's good as new (again). Paid 25 for this and it's definitely worth it

        •  

          Same as what this person said, no damage

        Fabric shavers can damage your clothing if you use too much force. The people who mentioned that probably didn't read the manual or they'd know that.

        As long as you go lightly over the area you want to remove lint or pilling from, you should be good.

      I use this on my bed sheets (low thread count results in little annoying clumps, or 'pilling') and it works well for this purpose, not trusting it near my clothes though.

    Lipstick on a $5 item. My cheapie works extremely well. (as does my fabric shaver)

      can the lipstick end up on ur clothes?

        All’s I’ll say is just be careful where you shave.

    •  

      I agree. This is an exceedingly 'simple' device that shouldn't attract this high price. Plus I've been apalled by gloss electronics (particularly black gloss) since they have been introduced, but it's clear some people still like it over matte.

      •  

        Is there Something I should know about black gloss that I don’t know?

        • +1 vote

          Shows stratches far more easily than white. Shows fingerprints far more easily. That's about it.

            @overpriced: Good point, I prefer black gloss for aesthetics but agree its shiny look can be tainted easier.

            @overpriced: Was in utter despair in the late 2000s when practically every laptop went glossy for both screen and chassis. At least one doesn't have to look at a fabric shaver for hours.

      I have had two cheaper versions of this (aldi and a no name from catalogue) and they have been absolutely rubbish, blew the fibres away rather than sucked them in and maybe cut one pill off after a minute of going over the same spot. I always see good reviews on this one but it looks identical, just prettier. Really would like to know if it's better

    Didn’t ever think I needed this.

    Bought one.

    I bought this from Amazon this year and can vouch it is amazing compared to all the other cheapy ones out there.

    The build is top notch and shaves very well. It shaves off more lint that others I’ve tried. The head is slightly bigger than the cheapy ones so it covers a bit more area.

    The catcher is good too and easy to remove and empty, but… if you’re not careful you can unlock it during use and then you end up with shavings everywhere. 😂

    I haven’t experienced any damage to the clothes I’ve shaved. As with all shavers the more you shave the thinner the fabric gets so always be careful not applying excessive pressure (read and follow the instructions in the provided paperwork).

    Can also vouch for this. Works very well and is bigger than a lot of cheaper ones….I use it on my fabric 7 seater couch all the time so the bigger head certainly comes in handy.
    Think I paid around the $20 mark but more than happy with it at that price. Excellent value under $15

  •  

    So ok for depilling a couch as well?

      I think yes, many reviews vouching this function

      My Mrs is fkn obsessed with depilling the bloody cheap couch and this does the job. Obsessed.

    Got the older version for less than $10.

    https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/542166

    Works really well. Not sure I can justify the $15 dollars though.

    •  

      Got the old version also, doesn't seem to be a new model though. Just a difference in colour?

      •  

        Yeah i think it might be. But when i went through the link I bought it for, it said "newer model".

  •  

    Get one of these that has a built in battery and USB charging and you'll never go back to one of the battery operated ones.

    I just bought one yesterday because the battery life on my old one was no longer holding up

    •  

      That’s why I use eneloops for this. Easy to change batteries so in the long run it will last longer than a rechargeable one.
      However, usb charging would be convenient in some ways, which one would you recommend?

        I bought this one

        https://www.amazon.com.au/dp/B08P2NK86F/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_g...

        It arrives tomorrow. It claims 60 minute battery time so if that's even close to true I'll be happy

          Thanks for the info, I like Xiaomi Mijia rechargeable lint shaver but hesitate to get one due to the long wait from Aliexpress. Xiaomi is a decent brand so you might be interested.

    • +2 votes

      I guess it depends on how frequently you use it. A rechargeable battery will degrade over time and the unit will be useless. Whilst a battery operated one, you can simply just replace with a new battery.

    What Amazon AU category would this item fall under for cashback purposes? There seems to be no entry for Laundry, Steaming & Ironing.

      It belongs to “Home” department so no cashback imo

      Chop anything small sticking out of garments including hair

  •  

    Does it also work as a lint remover? Lint is often a much bigger issue than the threads or thread balls coming out.

    •  

      Yes, it has holes in different sizes to collect lints as well.

  •  

    Has the price been updated? it shows up for me as 17.95, not 14.95, am I missing something?

  •  

    Price has increased to $17.95.

    •  

      Down to $16.95.
