Quick Tips for Getting Fur off Clothes & Couches
You can try the following methods to find the best fluff-busting solutions for your home:
- Place your fur covered clothes or couch cushion covers in the dryer with some dryer sheets designed for pet hair. Or a go to eco-friendly reusable product, like a dryer ball or damp microfiber cloth. Don’t forget to empty the lint trap after every load, especially after having furry clothes or cushions in the dryer.
2. Run a clean, damp rubber glove—the kind you clean the dishes with—over the fur covered surface. The rubber will attract the hair, then you can simply wash off the glove when it gets too covered with sticky doggie hair. Don’t have a glove handy? You can also try a clean sponge, rubber squeegee or pumice stone works just as well.
3. Spray a combination of water with a dash of fabric softener on upholstery to loosen up the hair before vacuuming. Then vacuum, vacuum, vacuum.
4. Stick to the lint roller route. Stash one in your car for an easy, last-minute touch-up before work or a night out.
5. Ran out of lint roller refills? Create one with tape wrapped around your hand, sticky side out.
6. Use an anti-static spray to prevent pet hair from clinging in the first place.
