Yea that’s what I do when I actually try to get them off. There’s just so many on my local trails. I don’t even know where I get them.I’ve found that stretching the fabric from “behind” seems to release them. Put your finger behind the target briar, push “up,” then pull it off the fabric from the other side.
Doesn’t do miracles, but seems to help.
That trail got us a few weeks ago. I ended up just throwing out my socks and spending hours picking them out of everything else.
I've heard this was the ticket. Sold out till Mid Oct thoEffective for the removal of Cockle-burs, Stick-tights (Beggar’s Lice) and other common burrs on a variety of materials, even fleece.burrpaw.com
Works wonders !!!!!!
