    Does anyone know where I can buy one of these electric razor type things that shaves off sweater pilling? Thanks.

    Any idea where I could get cedar oil for my shoe tree, cedar hangers, etc?

    actually if you lightly sand your cedar shoe trees or closet hanger things, it will release the oils in the cedar again; that's all you need to do

    The thing is that I have one that is so old, I think it was from an estate sale or something. The cedar scent is almost nonexistent even after some sanding.

    I got one at drugstore.com. It's called a fabric shaver.

    I have no reason to doubt that it is not cedar. I think it is just old.

    Skip the electric razor, is my advice. Use a used shaving head (or use a new one) with your usual razor to shave the sweater. Works for me and with better results than my lame electric pilling razor. This looks a bit funny so I tend to do it when my wife is not looking  [​IMG] B
