Several people have to deal with pesky animal hair on a daily basis, including pet owners, veterinary clinic workers, pet daycare workers, K9 division officers, breeders, grooming salons, horse stable personnel, and much more! Not only is animal hair unappealing, it can also irritate allergies, cause respiratory discomfort, and even spread germs and bacteria.
Fortunately, we have a simple and effective solution for removing unwelcome pet hair from clothing, upholstery, and all other types of fabrics!
Pet and animal hair should be removed from fabric as often as possible; not only for aesthetic and hygienic purposes, but also to maintain a healthy and comfortable indoor air environment. However, methods such as lint brushes, duct tape, and Velcro mitts for hair removal are outdated, tedious, and generally ineffective. Here are some better options for removing pet and animal hair from clothing and fabrics:
☑ Velcro Hair Rollers
Sold at most stores and inexpensive. Simply use your hands to remove pet hair in small areas and crevices of clothing or upholstery.
☑ Rubber Cleaning Gloves
Rubber is a hair magnet. Simply dampen the gloves with water and wipe away hair with your hands.
☑ Fabric Softener Sheets
Another hair magnet. Gently wipe hair away by barely pressing onto the surface of clothing or furniture. Pressing too hard will leave behind a greasy residue.
☑ Tennis Balls
The texture of the outer felt of a tennis ball is an effective hair remover. Punch a hole in one side for easy gripping and simply sweep across effected surfaces.
☑ Rubber Broom
For large-scale pet hair removal, a rubber broom is a perfect tool for faster task completion. The electrostatic cling pulls hair from the surface, removing it without a hassle.
On the topic of electrostatic cling, the same applies for balloons. Blow up a balloon to cover any surface area with pet hair. The hair sticks right to it!
☑ Kitchen Sponges
If you wet a regular kitchen sponge and wipe it across clothing or upholstery, it will clump hair together, making for easier and thorough removal. Be sure to rinse the sponge before repeating.
☑ Pumice Stones
Not just for feet! Only use pumice stone on carpets and rugs because its coarse texture could damage other surfaces. Just swipe across the carpet or rug for best results.
