STOCKING STUFFERS FOR PEOPLE WHO FIND CLEANING SATISFYING
This retractable lint roller is so satisfying to use. It unscrews like lipstick, locks in place and rolls to collect lint onto the adhesive paper roll. When you're finished using it, twist it to retract it back in the case until your next use. The case ensures you won't collect dust when you're not trying to, so the adhesive rolls of paper, which you can buy separately as refills, will last longer than a typical lint roller.
