Winning the War Against Pet Hair


If you own a pet, you know that the battle against pet hair is never ending!
Here are some useful tips to help you keep the pet hair at bay.

Buy a deshedding tool. My favorite deshedding tool is the
FURminator. I would like to note that I am not being paid to endorse this product. The FURminator not only is easy to use, but you get instant results. I remember the first time I used it, I was shocked at how much hair came off my dog. My dog doesn’t look like a shedder, but huge clumps fell off her easily. I also noticed that the amount of time spent daily cleaning up the pet hair was cut by 75 percent! I purchased the FURminator shampoo and received even greater results! If you have a dog, bathe him/her at least once a week. For cats, FURminator offers shampoo and waterless options to accommodate your feline friend’s preferences.
Use a vacuum with a pet hair brush. Many commercial vacuum cleaners offer such attachments. I use my pet hair brush for cleaning the couch cushions, throw pillows and even my bedspread. My favorite vacuum cleaner is the Shark Navigator. Again, this is not a paid endorsement. I also prefer vacuums that are bagless. Not do you save money by not having to buy bags, you can see your results instantly. I find that bagless vacuums don’t retain odors like their counterparts. I also vacuum daily finding that this keeps the pet smell away.

Keep a lint roller in every room.. By doing this, you can easily pick up stray clumps of hair as they appear without having to leave the room. I prefer the lint rollers with tape as I haven’t had much luck with the reusable brushes. I purchase a five pack for it $9.99 at BJ’s Club.

Wet that dust.When you dust, use a wet spray. Dry dusters tend to just spread the dust around. Either use a commercial spray or make your own. Here is one DIY spray to try.

By using these strategies, your home will be virtually hair free! Until next time, happy homemaking!
