    Removing Burrs from Fleece Clothing

    I went on a late-night hike off the trail, and definitely wore the wrong gear. Now my fleece (a fuzzy one) is filled with stick-tights, or burrs. I got most of them out by hand and combing, but there are a few small ones left.

    Anyone know of a good way to get rid of these? I thought about maybe hand-washing with soap to reduce the friction, and then combing out again. Any ideas?

    Depending on the fleece and burrs, duct tape takes them off, but may also take some fleece.

    Excessive intake of alcohol, we all know, kills brain cells, but naturally it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers.
