Removing Pet Hairs

To remove pet hair from fabric or upholstery, try a pet rake (a brush with crimped nylon bristles), velour brush, tape roller or even tape wrapped around your hand. Use light, even strokes to remove the hair. Another option is to try the rubber bottom on a clean tennis shoe or a slightly dampened sponge (as long as the dampness won’t harm the upholstery).

To remove pet hair from carpet, use a vacuum with a good beater brush or brush roll. Plain vacuums don’t generate enough lift to remove all the pet hair from the floor.

Another option for both upholstery and carpets – especially at the edges where pet hair tends to collect and vacuums have a hard time reaching – is a “pet sponge.” These sponges, which are used dry, are available at pet supply stores
