How to Remove Pet Hair:

While nothing beats the joy and exhilaration of playing with a furry four-legged friend, it is annoying to find your beloved pet’s hair in every corner of your house. The hair finds its way deep into carpets, furniture, clothes and even into the car upholstery. Even the most avid pet lovers face this problem on a regular basis. It is also important to groom your pets regularly to reduce the amount of loose hair on them. Here are a few easy and effective common tips to remove pet hair from clothing, carpeting and upholstery.

  • Dampen the palm of your hand and wipe the pet hair in a downward motion. The hair will ball up so that you can easily pick it up and throw it in the trash.
  • You can also dampen a kitchen sponge and rub your fabric, carpet or upholstery with it. Rub the sponge in a downward motion over your sofa cushion and car upholstery, the fur rolls up into clumps that make it easy to pick them off.
  • Use latex gloves while rubbing any surface as the pet hair will stick to it. For increased effectiveness it is recommended to dampen the glove or rubber section of the glove.
  • Vacuum carpets and furniture regularly and wash the surface as well as the rugs on which the pets sleep or have contact.
  • Use masking tape to remove pet hair from your clothing. It is cost effective and simple to use. Wrap the tape around your hand with the sticky part facing outside and press the tape over the surface where you have pet hair.
  • Use rubber brooms on your carpets. The rubber bristles work with static electricity and rolls up the hair in a pile. You can later pick up the rolled hair by hand and throw it away.
  • You can also buy a vacuum cleaner that is specifically designed to remove pet hair.
  • Sprinkle baking soda over rugs and allow it to sit. This helps loosen the pet hair and then you can vacuum it as usual.
  • Other tools which are used to remove pet hair includes rubber rakes, hair removal sponges, pet hair rollers, and pet hair magnets
  • There are also lint removal brushes which you can use to remove your pet’s hair.
  • Pet hair removal from upholstery is made easier if the upholstery is sprayed with static guards and then followed by vacuuming.
  • Keep a grooming mitt by your door so that every time your pet comes home from outside you can give it a quick brushing. This will limit the hair fall that ultimately piles up in your house.
