These rollers are great for removing pet hair. Keep one handy and use it often. In the absence of such a roller, it can be made from a small paint roller and adhesive tape. Wrap a long piece of duct tape around the roller, sticky side out.
Pumice stone and scraper
Some surfaces are especially difficult to clean from pet hair. Such is the case with car upholstery. You can use a pumice stone that you gently run over the upholstery to remove even the most stubborn hair. And a mop can be an effective tool for picking up hair from carpets. Simply run the squeegee over the desired surface and gather the hair at the end.
Old socks quickly push hair away from furniture and floors.
