1. Use textured rubber gloves.

Slip on some rubber gloves and run your hand along carpet and pet beds to collect pesky pet hair.


2. Scrub carpeted surfaces with a pumice stone.

If you have a dog that sheds a lot, you know that vacuuming alone won’t get all the pet hair out of your vehicle’s carpet. To save time, use a pumice stone to collect hair before using the vacuum.


3. Run a rubber squeegee over carpet.

Do this after you vacuum, and you’ll be surprised at how much hair is left over.


4. Pick up a pile of hair with a latex balloon.

Ever try rubbing a balloon against your hair? Yeah, it’s like that, but far more useful!


5. Use the rough side of Velcro.

Fuzz, hair, thread…Velcro can easily pick up fibers from fabric and carpet. If you don’t have a big strip of Velcro, try a plastic hair curler.

8. Brush surfaces with a scrub sponge.

The rough side of an everyday scrub sponge will also do the trick.


9. Run wet hands over pet hair.
