How to Remove Pet Hair from Carpets

Rubber brooms can be used on stubborn hairs. The rubber bristles work with static electricity and the cat hairs just seem to jump on to the brush. Another method is sweeping with a soft bristle brush before vacuuming.

If time and energy are not a problem to you, you can go over your carpet with a rubber glove or damp sponge to remove the hairs.

Try mixing some fabric softener with water and mist it on to your carpet with a spray bottle. Don't saturate the carpet just a fine mist is all you need. Allow to dry. After the carpet is dry, go over with your vacuum cleaner. 

For Dogs

You can vacuum the dog! Really. You can teach your dog to enjoy being vacuumed. It's best to start doing it while the puppy is young but you can teach old dog new tricks. It's a great way to get rid of the dog hair before it hits the carpet. Use a small brush attachment tool and massage it over your dog. They really do grow to love it.

Buy a New Vacuum Cleaner

You might want to invest in a new vacuum cleaner. Dyson makes a specially designed vacuum cleaner that removes animal hair. It's called Dyson Animal. It may be a difficult decision to buy an expensive vacuum cleaner but if you are a pet lover and you are likely to have cats or dogs in the house for most of your life then the initial cost could be money well spent to save you from the "pet hair blues."
