Removing lint and crap from fleece

I have a nice fleece sweater that's perfect for a cool fall day, but it has a lot of lint and cat hair stuck to it. I've tried sticking it in the wash with cold water and mild detergent, and it hasn't helped. Does anybody have any suggestions as to how I can remove lint and cat hair from my fleece?

Duct tape wrapped around your hand. Sticky side out. Replace with a new strip when it picks up too much fuzz.

Air fluff in the dryer when wet for about 30 minutes (no heat) before you hang it to dry. In between washings, get the sticky roller things. One 6-pack from Costco will last you a long time.

Step 1: Apply horseradish.
Step 2: Apply fire.
Step 3: There is no step three!

Tape will work for the lint and hair. As for crap, I've never had to remove crap from fleece before.

I use one of those lint remover brushes, with the red ridged fabric head. As a long-term cat owner, pretty much everything I own is covered in cat fur, with the occasional piece of lint. The brushes work well for me.

Just avoid it getting on your clothes in the first place. Shave the cat.

Wow... how comfy would it be if toilet paper was made from fleece? (Hey, someone has to supply the off the wall comments in MERTON's absence!)

Yah, wouldn't it be easier if you just stop shating on your sweater?
