I just picked one up, has a shoe horn at the end of it too. But, what is its purpose? Other than removing any surface lint and such. It seems these were more popular well, when DE's were popular, around that time frame.
A roller will fade the fabric over time since it does not raise the nap like a clothes brush does. I got a pure natural bristle brush made in Germany for about $20 at Nordstrom and I will not go back to the adhesive kind any time soon.Is there an advantage to the clothes brush over the sticky roller (other than the wasted disposable roller tape)?
