Pet Hair on Microfiber

We recently purchased a microfiber couch and its beautiful. However, our dog is currently shedding as a result of her being pregnant. We have attempted to vacuum it off. How do I get rid of the pet hair that is clinging to the couch we love?

Have you tried using a rubber glove to wipe the hair? It works on regular furniture but I have had no experience with microfiber furniture. It's certainly worth a try. (02/26/2006)

I have the same problem with my six cats. I was told to use a damp sponge and just wipe it off. I vacuumed the couch first then used the damp sponge. It worked OK - I think if I did it once a week it would work very well. (02/26/2006)

Spray endust on a cloth then gently wipe your couch it will repel the animal hair. (02/26/2006)

I am looking at purchasing a Microfiber couch and I also have animals. The salesman told me to spray Static Guard on the furniture and then vacuum. I don't know if this works so you probably want to try a small area, but he said he uses this method for his Microfiber furniture. (02/26/2006)

A wide strip of tape like sealing tape, or the sticky window envelopes used by UPS/FedEx works well to remove a few layers of fur!; follow with a damp sponge or a sponge available at pet shops for removing pet hair. (02/27/2006)

I use a sticky-tape roller on all of my upholstered furniture, including microfiber, and it works really well. I get the rollers at the dollar stores and they last quite a long time. You just peel off the used part of the tape when you get through, and you have a new sticky tape available. Needless to say, I go through a lot of tape as I have a constantly shedding pomeranian, an old Pekingese who sheds, and a solid black cat who also sheds. (02/27/2006)

P.S. The sticky tape roller also works well on your clothing. I always get hair on me when I'm around my pets, don't you? (02/27/2006)

We have two major shedding felines and two microfiber couches. We use a soft rubber brush thing that is sold for the purpose of removing pet hair, and it works very well. (02/27/2006)

Just wipe with a cloth dampened (not wet, just damp) in bucket of water with a little fabric softener added. (02/28/2006)

As I sit here with 3 rescue cats piled on top of me I feel your pain. They want me to tell you about a wonderful product Pet Hair Magnet by Petmate, you can find it at most pet stores and wow. It looks like something you would scrape your windshield with and you use it very much the same way. A quick tip, if there is a lot of hair and/or it is fly away have your vacuum close by, it normally rolls the fur into long strips but sometimes with fine hair it drags it in a pile but not easy to pick up. Tip #2 if you have carpeted stairs and you just can't ever get the hair up this thing is great. (03/30/2006)

I have a microsuede couch and I vacuum the bottom of it twice a week to keep up with the dog. In the summer I cover it with a cotton throw cover. (03/30/2006)
