Quick Fix: 3 Ways to Remove Pet Hair
These three everyday items can help make it easier to remove pet hair around your home.
Pumice stones work best on carpeting, Apartment Therapy says.
- Step 1: Grab a pumice stone.
- Step 2: Test it by gently rubbing it on a small, ideally hidden, spot of your carpet or rug, such as under your couch.
- Step 3: Once you’ve tested it and determined it’s safe on your carpet, rub the stone around to gather pet hair.
Dryer sheets are ideal for clothing, according to Apartment Therapy.
- Step 1: Pull out a clean dryer sheet.
- Step 2: Test whether it will leave any residue by rubbing it on a small spot on the underside of your clothes.
- Step 3: After you’ve determined it’s safe on your fabric, rub it gently across your clothing to pick up pet hair.
Rubber or latex gloves can help remove hair on upholstery, Real Simple says.
- Step 1: Put on a pair of clean rubber or latex gloves.
- Step 2: Wet your gloved hand under the faucet so the glove is damp but not dripping.
- Step 3: Make sure your couch’s material is resilient and resistant to water damage. Then rub your damp gloved hand along your upholstery to gather pet hair.
