Pilling is a common problem with sheets, especially if they are made from synthetic materials. The good news is that there are several things you can do to prevent or stop sheets from pilling. First, make sure to wash your sheets according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
This will help remove any oils or other build-up that can contribute to pilling. Second, use a fabric softener when washing your sheets. This will help keep the fibers from matting down and becoming tangled, which can also lead to pilling.
Finally, consider investing in higher quality sheets. Sheets made from natural fibers like cotton are less likely to pill than those made from synthetic materials.

How Do You Get Fuzz Balls off Sheets?
If you’ve ever found a fuzz ball on your sheets, you know how annoying it can be. Fuzz balls are small balls of lint that form when fabric rubs together. They can be difficult to remove, but there are a few methods you can try.
One way to remove fuzz balls is to use a lint roller. Lint rollers are covered in adhesive tape that will stick to the fuzz ball and lift it off the fabric. You can find lint rollers at most stores that sell cleaning supplies.
Another method is to use a vacuum cleaner with a attachment designed for removing lint. Run the vacuum over the area where the fuzz ball is located and it should pull it right off. If you don’t have a special attachment, you can try using the hose attachment without turning on the vacuum.
The suction should be enough to pull the fuzz ball off the fabric. You can also try dampening a cloth with water or rubbing alcohol and dabbing at the fuzz ball until it comes loose. Once it’s loose, you can pick it off or vacuum it up.
If all else fails, you may need to cut the fuzz ball out of your sheets. Use sharp scissors to snip as close to the fabric as possible so you don’t damage your sheets too much.
