Bellamy's Top Five Tips on how to remove dog hair from furniture

To effectively remove dog hair from furniture, there are several methods you can try. Here's a roundup of some helpful techniques:

Tip 1

Lint Roller: Use a lint roller1 to roll over the surface of your furniture to pick up dog hair. The adhesive on the roller will catch and remove the hair. Lint rollers are easily available at drugstores or grocery stores.

Tip 2

Tape: You can also use regular packing tape or duct tape1. Wrap the tape around your hand with the sticky side facing out, then press it onto the furniture surface and lift off to remove the hair.

Tip 3

Rubber Gloves: Put on a pair of rubber gloves2 and lightly dampen them with water. Then, run your hands over the furniture surfaces, and the hair will stick to the rubber gloves.

Tip 4

Dry Sponge: A dry sponge can be effective for lifting pet hair from furniture cushions3. Gently rub the dry sponge over the furniture, and the hair should stick to the sponge.

Tip 5

Vacuum with Upholstery Attachment: Use a vacuum cleaner with an upholstery attachment4 to vacuum the furniture thoroughly. This will help remove loose pet hair and dirt from the fabric. Pay extra attention to problem areas where hair tends to accumulate.

Tip 6 (BONUS)

Fabric Softener Spray: Mix water and fabric softener in a spray bottle, then lightly mist your furniture. The fabric softener will help loosen the hair, making it easier to remove with a lint roller or tape.

Remember to check the care instructions for your furniture to ensure that the cleaning method you choose is suitable for the fabric or material1. Regular maintenance, such as frequent vacuuming or using furniture covers, can also help prevent excessive pet hair buildup.
