Remove Pet Hair With Rubber Gloves

Due to an influx of natural cleaners, many homes don't keep rubber gloves around like they used to, but they may very well be the easiest and cheapest way to remove pet hair from your sofas, chairs and vehicles.

There's no trick or gimmick with this tried and true method of pet hair removal. All you need is a pair of typical rubber gloves found in the cleaning aisle at your local supermarket. Slide them on and you're set to get frisky with your sofa and car interior. After a good rub down (hubba hubba) the fur should lift and stick to the glove.

Simply submerge your hands in water and the hair will unstick and float on top of the water for you to gather and dispose of. You can of course remove the excess fur without water, but we've always been fans of the quickest and easiest method possible, and from experience, I can say this works like a charm.

Got your own favourite method of pet hair removal? Do you stick to the vacuum and lint rollers or have a favourite off the shelf product? Let's hear it in the comments.


    sweeet. Been looking so long for something like this!!!

    I'm using lint brushes or any stick tapes. They're cheap, easy to use, and disposable.

    Just saw this article (link from the thongs one) and gave decided to give it a go this morning. Works like a charm - except the fur didn't stick to the gloves, but stayed clumped up on the sofa.
    No biggie - some sticky tape got rid of the fur nicely.
    Thanks for the great tip!
