Removing Pet Hair From Furniture, Carpets and Clothing
Take a slightly damp, clean sponge or microfiber cloth and run it over your furniture. The hair will ball right up. A slightly damp, clean sponge mop will remove pet hair on carpets as well when your vacuum is just not doing its job.
Also, a rubber broom or squeegee will get rid of hair from furniture and carpets quickly and effectively. Lightly spray the area with a 50/50 vinegar and water solution to help with the removal process and odor control.
Traditional rubber gloves (not latex) dampened with a bit of water or vinegar and water solution will make it easier when removing pet hair
from couches, chairs, carpets, bedding, etc. Simply rub the area covered in hair until it balls up then toss it out. This method works great on clothing too! Gloves can be rinsed, sanitized and reused so why keep spending money right?
Make it fun for the kids to remove pet hair
If you have children, you can make it fun by having them blow up some balloons and rub them on the areas where your pet hair is. The static will collect the hair from the surface and on to the balloon. Our little Noah thinks it's fun, so we figure it would be fun for your small children too.
One last trick is you can rub a dryer sheet when removing pet hair
from any surface then remember to brush away in the trash. Very simple solution for pet owners that cannot afford hiring professionals to come do the dirty work for you.
Hopefully this tip helped for all of you pet owners getting frustrated at pet hair all over the place.
