Between laundry, I use a roller with adhesive tape on it. They are in the dollar store, for $1.
I also just pop the stuff in the dryer with a dryer sheet.

Don't even try to remove it. Wear it proudly as an accessory. (10/17/2005)

RE: Removing Dog and Cat Hair from Clothing

I tried the tape method, haven't tried the rubber gloves, but I've found lint rollers for $1 each at Walmart; they're usually found on the ends of aisles. You can't beat the price. Just leave the used one on the roller till you're ready to use the next clean sheet. Works like a charm. By the way I have a white dog and a black dog, there is always hair everywhere. (05/22/2007)

I find lint removers of all types work, Unfortunately I find the best way is keeping the dog and cat groomed (Shed Ender works wonders) and cleaning the bed, furniture, and carpet weekly with a lint remover get it out of your house and less gets on you. (05/23/2007)

RE: Removing Dog and Cat Hair from Clothing

I bought a rubber pet brush to brush the cat. The bristles, handle and every part of it is made out of a rubber material. He sleeps on the pad of the rocking chair and it is always covered with hair. The brush works wonders. It removes so much hair I could make another cat out of it. Works better than the vacuum. I bought the brush for around $5 at Walmart. (05/23/2007)

I've got 3 cats. I bought a Magic Fur Ball last year on QVC and it works great. You can buy them online now at magicfurball.com You just put it in your dryer and it loosens the hair from clothes. The pet hair ends up in the lint trap. (11/11/2008)

How do you remove dog fur from clothing and sheets in the dryer?

By Dawn from Saint Petersburg, FL


RE: Removing Dog and Cat Hair from Clothing

If you tumble the clothes/sheets in the dryer before you wash them, a lot of the hair comes off of the clothes. Then wash and dry as usual. Make sure the lint filter is clean when you do this. (01/02/2010)

RE: Removing Dog and Cat Hair from Clothing

Using house hold rubber gloves is great for removing dog and cat hairs off your clothes, and especially your car upholstery. The static from rubber makes hair stick to gloves. (01/06/2010)
