NancyJ 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.

dogfaeries 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!

Freestep 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.

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!
