Hi All ;
 Thought I would share a simple cheap trick for pet hair removal.
We have many persian cats in our home, most in full coat...   Imagine the mess ... we love our cats but they do make it hard to have clean clothes and clean furniture.
We have tried all the different products avalable for this problem.
They all worked to a certain extent.  Sticky rollers , special dry sponges, one way brushes & i'm sure there were others .

What works best for us is a simple kitchen sponge with a scrubby on one side. Slightly damp use the scrubby side and it grabs ALL the hair fast!
Works as good or better than all the fancy expencive products.
Its cheap, fast  and its something most already have on hand.

I will try that! I struggle to get the dog hair off clothing, especially dark clothing. It comes out of the washing machine with the hair on it.

Another trick that works well is to use a rubber glove to get stubborn embedded dog hair off the car upholstery. Just rub a kitchen glove over the hair as you vacuum it and most of it comes right up.

Most of the time a damp washcloth works fine to get the hair that lands on everything compliments of my german shepherd.  I cant imagine how bad it would be if she was allowed on the furniture! This time of year, I tend to embrace the hair as extra winter warmth and less work too😀
Hey, sticks and stones baby. And maybe a wee mention of my stuff:
