A Paint Roller with a Twist
Do you use a lint roller on your jackets, pants and shirts before you leave the house? If so, create one you can use on your sofa, chairs and other furniture. Find an old paint roller in the garage or basement and cover its roller with a layer of duct tape. Roll it over your couch, chairs and ottoman and watch it pick up pet hair like there’s no tomorrow!
An Emory Board for Your Chair Legs
You probably have some Emory boards hanging around that you use to file your nails. Take one of them and use it to remove the hair that builds up on the bottom of your chair legs. The base of a chair leg is especially likely to attract pet hair if it has a Velcro covering on it protecting a tile or wood floor. At Fabulously Clean House Cleaning, our professional team of housekeepers is familiar with the pet hair, dirt and other debris that can quickly accumulate on the legs of chairs and tables.
Vacuum in More Ways Than One
Vacuuming the carpet to get rid of pet hair? Not a novel idea. The trick is to vacuum your carpet in one direction, then go back and vacuum in the opposite direction. Stubborn pet hair has a tendency to hang onto carpet fibers. It has a tougher time doing that if you attack it from two directions!
Water, Fabric Softener and a Squeegee Can Conquer Pet Hair
Our team at Fabulously Clean knows that the hardest part of cleaning pet hair off upholstered furniture is it tends to stick to fabric like glue. One tip to win this battle is to arm yourself with a spray bottle full of warm water mixed with a couple tablespoons of fabric softener. Lightly spray the fabric and use a rubber squeegee to remove the pet hair. Let the furniture dry completely.
