The $7 Item Everyone Should Keep in Their Desk at Work
The fastest way to look flawlessly put-together is just a swipe away.
Anyone who has pets, a so-cozy teddy bear coat, or a significant other knows that sometimes you get to work and you’re covered in fuzz or hair—no matter how hard you inspected your outfit before leaving the house. Now what? Here’s your solution: Keep a Flint Retractable Lint Roller stashed in your desk, purse, or glove compartment (or all three!) for these emergency situations. That way you can give yourself a quick once-over before anyone else notices.
Yeah, yeah, you’re thinking. Lint rollers aren’t new. True enough, but this one is especially awesome.

At a compact five and a half inches when it’s closed and an impressive nine inches when the roller is revealed, this smart design solves a lot of issues typical of regular lint rollers. First, that whole wasted-adhesive-sheet issue: Its retractable design protects and covers the adhesive sheets so you can twist them up when you’re ready and cover them when you’re done. This also solves another common problem: a lint roller that attracts hair ties, cellphone, gum, lint, crumbs, or whatever else was in the bottom of your drawer or handbag. Each sheet picks up a substantial amount of lint and hair when you want it to, thanks to its extra sticky adhesive. Plus, you can easily swap in new replacement sheets when you run out, instead of replacing the whole mechanism. (The landfills thank you in advance.)
