Pet hair from a beloved animal can be very frustrating when it finds its way into your clothes, carpeting and upholstery. There are some techniques you can use to remove pet hair. One of them is wiping the hair off in a downward manner after soaking the palm of your hand. The hair will ball up and stick to your damp hand. This works because the hair becomes wet, therefore heavier.
Another way of removing pet hair is by using a sponge mop. This is mostly for when you’re removing hair from a low-pile carpet, in which case the floor should be thoroughly vacuumed first. You may also like to use curlers on the surface to catch the hair. If the curler has a metal inner form, it can be bent to reach corners.
Applying fabric softener to your clothes for pet hair removal can also be helpful. A fabric softener sheet that normally goes in the dryer can be used to pick up pet hair. You can also moist the surface with a mixture of fabric softener and water, and then remove the fur. You can use adhesive tape to peel off some fur.
The most effective way to prevent pet hair from getting onto your clothes is by using preventive measures. Keep your clothes in places isolated from your pets or you can groom them regularly in order to reduce the amount of loose hair on them. Vacuum your carpets regularly. Use rubber brooms to sweep hair from surfaces.
Sometimes the fibers of you carpet are what makes it so difficult to remove the pet hair. If none of these methods work, you may want to have a professional clean your carpets. Make sure you get rid of pet hair especially if you have young kids or small babies living in the same home.
