Lightbulb Shedding TIP! Sharing a cleaning tip with you all :)

My sweet friend (who has very short haired pit bulls and thinks THEY shed a lot, ha!) sent me an idea that she saw online for removing dog hair from couches/furniture. I tried it today on my fabric couches and it actually removed more dog hair than a sticky lint roller does.

-Put on a rubber cleaning glove (like the one pictured below).
-Dampen it by dipping your gloved fingers in water.
-Use your gloved hand to scrape/rub the hair toward you as if you were gathering it into a pile.


I got TONS of hair that was interwoven into the fabric. The only drawback was that my arm got tired after a while, LOL.

Hope this works for you guys too!

Good tip. You can also get shedding hair off the dog with the same method! Unfortunately, after doing it to dogs all day, I don't much feel like doing it to my furniture.

I do the glove trick on the chair the dogs like to camp out on. Even with a blanket on it, it gets hair. The glove works, and yes, your arm gets tired!

I remember as a kid my mother would put on shoes with crepe soles and do that to the carpet. Back then we did not have the super duper vacuums we have today.
