Great Ways to Remove Pet Hair

Updated on May 7, 2014

When it comes to removing pet hair, many people have trouble. Whether it be removing it from your furniture, clothes, or even the carpet, you can bet you might have some trouble getting all of it up. There is one thing you can do to reduce the process of having to remove a lot of pet hair from these places. For one thing, some people might opt for getting a pet that doesn’t shed as much. However, this isn’t always possible. This is why you will need to try to come up with some of your own homemade strategies that will cost less money or buy pet hair removal products.

Brush your pet regularly

One good way to reduce the amount of pet hair on your belongings and in your home is to ensure you brush your pet with a good pet hair brush every day. Doing so in the morning, afternoon, and at night and especially after giving your pet a bath will help reduce the amount of pet hair your dog or cat will shed making your life a whole lot easier. While doing this will not completely eliminate the hair, it will help reduce it.

The use of rubber gloves or lint brushes

One good way to help pick up all the pet hair from your pet shedding so much is to pick it up with either a pair of rubber gloves or use a lint brush to remove pet hair. Lint brushes are especially good for removing it from furniture and clothes.

Dryer Sheets

Dryer sheets aren’t just for helping your clothes smell better when doing laundry anymore. You can use them for quite a few things and using them to pick up pet hair is one good thing. All you need to do is wipe the area where there is pet hair and the dryer sheet will pick the hair right up.

Create a favorite spot for your pet

This doesn’t mean you have to confine your pet to one area all the time but making a favorite spot for him or her can reduce pet hair all over the home. Doing this will reduce them roaming all over the place and therefore, reduce the act of having to remove so much pet hair. This will also provide them with a familiar place to rest and call their own.

Don’t forget to use the best vacuum cleaner for pet hair you can find as well that will help clean up the hair, eliminate allergens, and just make your life a whole lot easier.

Store bought products

Although these home remedies are a great option for removing unwanted pet hair from your home, if these options don’t work well enough for you, you will want to try store bought products. One product is called FURminator which is a special pet brush you can use to remove their undercoat and reduce shedding. You can also try Espress Natural Simple Shed Treatment which is a type of shampoo that helps decrease shedding.
