Default removing hitch hikers on clothes

Does anyone have a time saver for removing "hitch hikers" off of clothing? By hitch hikers I mean those small weeds that attach themselves to your clothes.

I assume you are talking about those small burrs. I normally use a credit card to scrape them off of the clothing. I certainly don't wash the clothing until they are removed or you will create a smaller version of the same problem with everything in the wash.

Not sure what type you have there, but there are 2 nasty "hitch hikers" here that are smaller and a pain in the arse to remove. What worked the quickest for me was to use a knife and scrape them off. However, if you cut them off, pieces of them will still be lodged within the material.

I like that credit card idea. Is it better to use Visa or Mastercard? LOL!
