How to rejuvenate non-sticky velcro

Is there anything that can be done to things that fasten with Velcro that "lose" the ability to attach the "cro" to the "vel?"

Use a comb. What happens is that the "hooks" gradually pick up hairs, threads, lint, what have you, until there's no space for the "loops" to fit in and catch. Comb through the hooks very slowly, and you can work out the stuff that's caught in there.
