Minimizie Shedding

Wow is Patty starting to shed. I thought it started after winter!

I brush her with the furminator and then a regular brush everyday and still hair seems to go everywhere!

Any extra advice on how to keep clean.

Re: Minimizie Shedding

I have hardwood, so my best friend is the Swiffer...I do it everyday.

And even still there is hair. Certain times of the year are just bad, I do my best to sweep and swiffer each day and that keeps it bearable.

It's either that or invite my mom over (she cleans as she talks)

Lower your standards of what's a clean house. Honestly. It's a losing battle. You can only do so much. A little hair never hurt anybody.

I have the furminator, too.

I keep up with mine by using a Roomba. Man, does he pick up the dog hair.

Re: Minimizie Shedding

A lint brush is your best friend!! Dh swears Sandi purposely puts her hair on his uniforms. Every closet in my house has a lint brush.
We brush daily (almost if it's raining or snowing hard we don't) outside.

I agree with Tracy, it can be a losing battle, but I won't lose!! LOL

Simple fix for this one:
I stay in my jammies ( I do shower) until 5 minutes before I have to go to work. Cyrus gets crated and the girls go to their spots, then I get dressed and leave for work.
I also keep a lint roller in my desk at work, just in case.

Oh Yes, lint rollers are a must, in the house, in the car, and at work.

Hubby dresses very nice for work, and wears black quite often; and every morning we have to roll him before he goes out the door.
