Tip of the Day #243: Dealing with Pet Hair

There are a few methods that I have found to be very effective in removing pet hair from furniture:

1. Put on a rubber glove. Rub the surface with it on. The pet hair should stick to your glove. Dampen the glove or rubber section of the glove for increased effectiveness.

2. You can use sellotape (packing tape) to peel off some fur. Just wrap some around your hand with the sticky, adhesive part sticking out and tap it on the fur-covered areas.

3. For areas that are not completely covered in fur, using a lint roller also works!

For your FLOORS, I highly recommend investing in a microfiber mop! A normal broom or vacuum tends to blow pet hair around, whereas the microfiber picks up every single piece--a true miracle worker! :)

  1. I like to take a roll of packing tape and unroll a stretch of tape the length of the roll. Leaving it attached I then circle the roll backwards and attach the cut end to the back folded tape. This then creates my own lint roller and it rolls smoothly with my hand extended thru the rolls hole. Once it's filled i simple cut off where the unexposed tape is (and i always dog ear one corner for easy grip the next time). It especially works in a pinch when you are out of lint roller adhesives.
