We have four animals – three cats and the dog:
We love them to pieces!! But these sweetie heads create a lot of work. I think it’s like with kids – one or two aren’t bad, but when there’s three or four they start to take over a bit. ;)
The biggest issue is the hair, which I try to keep up with but let’s be honest – it’s usually once every month or so (if that) that I actually address it. Thankfully the cat hair is only (mostly) a problem on the floors, but the dog hair is a sneaky beast that seems to show up everywhere, usually on his “perches.”
Our little dog has little dog syndrome, and must be on the lookout most days:
I’ve tried other brushes and and they don’t get it all either, including this one:
I got it at Bed Bath and Beyond and it’s OK, but it doesn’t get all the hair and it’s pretty rough. I wouldn’t use it on more delicate fabrics.
My favorite trick is the simplest (as usual) – I use a rubber glove:
Look away now if dog hair grosses you out. :) I show you this because I love you:
What I love is that you actually use your hands – you can really grab along the edges of furniture and cushions and use your fingers to get it all. It works better than any other method I’ve tried in 20+ years of adulthood with animals.
Peanut watched me the whole time I worked on this chair, and then promptly got back up on his spot:
Just thought I’d share this quick tip! I use it every time I clean off the sofas or chairs – along with a vacuum at times. But this is a quicker method of getting it cleaned up. Have you tried this trick? Any others you animal lovers use?
