The Pain of Pet Hair

The Pain of Pet Hair

What would your life be without your lovely furry companion?! I’m sure there’s nothing better than the unconditional love that your pet offers you, and that’s why it is very important to take care of your pet. If you’re a pet owner, I’m sure you know those moments when you see your clothes full (and I mean full) of hair from your sweet pet, because just a few minutes ago you were playing with him. Pet hair may be hard to remove from your clothes and sheets, never fret, as we’re here to offer you some helpful tricks to get rid of that unwanted hair from your clothes.

One thing you may have lying around the house and something that’s not expensive at all is the hair removing roller with adhesive tape on it. A roller like this looks like a brush, but on top it has sticky sheets that immediately catch the hair on your clothes. Just with a simple motion of swiping back and forth you can collect the pet hair not only from your clothes but also from the couch, sheets, chair, sofa and other textures. It is a great thing when you are in a hurry and you want to quickly remove the pet hair from your clothes. Something similar is a lint brush, which have a great effect on removing the pet hair.

An ingenious and cool idea for removing the pet hair is to use rubber gloves. Their material is great at creating a static reaction and making the thin and light pet hair stick to the gloves, this way making your cleaning mission easier for you. After you get the hair, just rinse the gloves off and wash them. A regular kitchen sponge could also be used as a mop for removing pet hair from your clothes and carpet, as the sponge will cause the fur to roll up into clumps that you can pick off by hand.

Rubber velcro curlers can catch hairs, and some people also use tape to remove hair.  If you have a balloon laying around, you can also rub that across any surface with pet hair on it. The static on the balloon’s surface will attract the hair, so technically you could use it to remove more hair.

Sometimes you’ll be in a hurry, and need to remove pet hair as soon as possible. What you can do is soak your hand in a bowl of water and wipe the hair off of your clothes in a downward motion. The hair will ball up and stick to your damp hand, and the wetter the hair, the more of it will stick due to it’s weight.

Of course, brushing your pet on a regular basis can help you avoid the large amount of hair sticking to your clothes and furniture. Preventing that pet hair buildup in the first place and making sure your couches and furniture aren’t littered with hair to start with is a much more useful solution to this. Although there is no one size fits all solution for the problem of pet hairs, we hope that this will help.
