Ways to Remove Cat Hair from Furniture

Quickly and Inexpensively


Thanks to Cats Forum member Susannah (suayres1) for the following tips for cat hair removal from upholstered furniture.
  • Bed Bath & Beyond sells pet-hair brushes (they're funny looking, made of rubber, with soft rubber "fingers" which pick up the hair from furniture like gangbusters).
  • Buy a cheap pair of water shoes (Wal-Mart, under $5) and brush the hair off furniture or whatever else with the soles of the shoes.
  • Roll cat hair off furniture and rugs by first spraying them with a mixture of fabric softener and water, and then just brush it off with your hands! (Color-test first in an inconspicuous area.)
  • And from Majken by email: "Rubber dishwashing gloves also have the added benefit that you can catch the hair you're balling up in the same hand, and since they fit "like a glove" you can reach anywhere, even smaller cracks. It works great for any sort of lint actually. Whenever my husband is going somewhere in a suit (and we all know how cat hair likes to tag along with suits!), we make sure he takes a glove with him so he has a spotless suit as soon as he gets out of the car."
