How to Remove Pet Hair From Furniture, Carpets and Clothing
Take a barely 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 cutting it.
A rubber broom or squeegee will remove hair from furniture and carpets quickly and effectively. Lightly spritz 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 easily remove pet hair from couches, chairs, carpets, bedding, etc. Simply rub area covered in hair until it balls up then toss. Works great on clothing too! Gloves can be rinsed, sanitized and reused as needed.
Release your inner child and blow up some balloons and rub them on pet hair covered furniture and clothing. The static will collect the hair from the surface and on to the balloon.
Rub a dryer sheet to release the hair from any surface then brush away.
