You adore your pets. You love the way they greet you after a long day. You also love their snuggles, companionship, and warmth. There’s just one thing that you struggle with: the hair that they leave everywhere!
Pet hair is a common problem for dog and cat parents, especially when you have a small space living situation. You may have tried various tricks but have found that the mess quickly returns as if you didn’t clean at all. Here are some quick tricks to remove pet hair from your home easily.
Start with Your Pets
Though you might want to start with the mess itself, the best way to reduce the amount of hair is to treat the source: your pets. Grooming them doesn’t just help them feel pampered and loved. It also reduces the amount of hair that they shed in your small space. If you brush your pets with a pet hair removal brush twice a week, you’ll see a big difference in how much hair is left around your home.
Your Sofa and Tables
Do you get annoyed when pet hair gets stuck on your favorite sofa? How about getting out of bed to find that you’re covered in hair? Don’t buy an army of lint rollers for your home, as the cost can add up quickly. Instead, try using a rubber glove. Simply put one on and rub the hair off your couch, ottoman, or other upholstered furniture. Watch as even the most stubborn hairs loosen their grip.
You can easily clean your coffee table and other smooth furniture surfaces with a dry microfiber cloth, which picks up pet hair well.
Your Carpet and Floors
Vacuuming is naturally the first choice when it comes to removing hair from your floors. However, frequent vacuuming can wear out your carpets. It may also be too noisy for some hours of the day.
A clever (and silent) trick is to rub a pumice stone along your carpet to pick up hair easily. If you have hardwood or laminate floors, use a dry Swiffer sweeper to pick up stubborn hairs.
Your Clothing and Linens
Lint rollers are the go-to hair removal tool for clothing you’re currently wearing. If you’re looking to remove hair from a larger quantity of clothing, simply toss in the furry fabrics into the dryer with a dryer sheet for about 10 minutes. They’ll come out spic and span.
Follow these tips and find that small space living with your beloved pets has never been easier.
