So, you have an adorable puppy or kitten and it seems like, no matter how much you vacuum and sweep, their fur and hair is still all over the house! Even though regularly cleaning can reduce the amount of fur floating around your home, it may not be enough. Here are four ways you can reduce the amount of pet hair around your home.
The tried and true way to remove pet hair from your clothes after you’ve left the house. But, have you ever used a lint roller on your furniture? You can use lint rollers pretty much everywhere your pet can leave hair: car interiors, rugs, and yes, furniture! If you’re in a bind, you can even use duct tape around a paint roller, sticky side out.
One of the best cleaning hacks for pet hair is a rubber broom! They’re ideal for carpeted floors or homes with large area rugs. Instead of using a squeegee, which would get you down on the floor, a rubber-bristle broom have a long handle to save your back and knees, and can get really deep into carpets and get up even the most stubborn hair, even the hair the vacuum doesn’t pick up.
Rubber gloves, like the ones you wash dishes with, are also great for removing pet hair! You can use gloves to clean smaller things, like a scratching post, pet bed, or even your pets themselves. Just put on the glove, dampen it a little, run your hand over the surface, and watch all the pet hair clump up.
Does your pet typically sleep or hang out in one place all day? Try using a drop cloth, sheet, or slip cover to protect their favorite spot to prevent hair from accumulating on your furniture. (Or, use it to cover up the hair that’s already there if you have surprise guests.)
By brushing your cat or dog with a high-quality brush on a regular basis, you can minimize the amount of fur that they shed every day. Especially during the change of season, this is a great way to give your animal quality attention they need, and prevent excessive hair buildup in your home.
