    A needle works or a stiff hairbrush depending on how bad it is ? Girlfriend had a good idea, a lint roller might work ?

    Low tech but effective solution is to use your thumb and forefinger and simply pick the stuff out. I have a pair of very hairy dogs (Newfoundlands) and their fur is constantly fouling my velcro closures on various coats etc. Just pluck it out!

    Use a plastic comb and "rake" the stuff out of the hooks.

    This is what I've done, but be gentle on the "Hook" side or you can loose the "stickiness" by tearing or straightening the "Hooks".

The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."

    I used a dog shed brush with good results. You have to find the ones that have the sharp wire ends. The coated end ones won't work.

    There is something about firing 4,200 thirty millimeter rounds/min that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
