I have two dogs and a mink blanket, and with it becoming summer, they are still shedding profusely. I have washed my blanket several times and dried it. The dog hair remains, not nearly as bad, but there is still plenty there. Does anyone have any ideas on how to get the rest of the hair off of the blanket?

Take a roll of wide duct tape. Unroll just enough to wrap it around the spool backwards and stick to the beginning. Then roll this over your sheets and blankets. It'll pick it all up. If it gets full of hair and debris, simply cut off this section and roll out a fresh section. I have 2 black dogs who sleep with me and I do this every morning when I make the bed.
I can recommend two options. #1 purchase one of the rollers that you use to take lint off of clothing. You may go through several sheets but I know it takes all of my cats fur off of just about everything.
Oh yes, if you're near and IKEA I've found them to be the cheapest there. (They have refills too.) #2 there is a pet hair remover sponge (mine is blue) which is sold in Bed Bath & Beyond (about $5) and it seems to work really well also.

I would recommend using Fur-Zoff. It works great for getting all of my cats hair off of the furniture. I like it better then most ways because it's a "green" product and is supposed to last you forever. I believe you can find it now at http://www.FurZoff.net. I hope this is helpful! goodluck!

I would like tips for removing cat and dog hair from bed sheets and blankets.

This works very well for fine hair that gets embedded in the fabric and it's super cheap. I store the tape on the roller handle and keep it in the closet so I can run it over my clothes just before I go out the door. Hope this helps, it's the best solution I've found. (09/18/2006)
