The EASIEST way to remove pet hair from clothes and furniture.
There are so many hair removal gadgets that claim to easily remove pet hair, but I’ve only found one that really WORKS. I also have an easier hack for the dog and cat hair that you probably already have at home!
We are HUGE animal lovers! With three cats and a dog, we have to keep up with the pet hair on the upholstery and floors regularly.
Our problem areas are usually the back cushions where both the dog and cats like to perch, and the upholstery on the sides of the couches and chairs where the cats rub up against the furniture.

Beyond the constant cushion smooshing, the dog hair was all over, especially down the back of the seat behind the back cushion:
I’ve tried all kinds of pet hair removal tools over the years. The sticky tape lint rollers work OK but they don’t get everything, and I feel like I end up using a third of the roller for one piece of furniture.
It works just as is, but I find it works even better when a little wet (just be sure that’s OK for your fabric). You just use your hand to wipe the hair into piles:
The rubber gloves easily grab the pet fur and allow you to grab it in bigger clumps:
Even Colby approves. 🙂 It works SO well and is free if you have a rubber glove laying around.
What I love is that you can really grab along the edges and detail areas of furniture and cushions and use your fingers to get all of the pet hair.
It has the textured fabric that grabs the fur and lint (we had paddle lint brushes with this fabric when I was a kid). But the difference with this one is is has those rubber strips (that act like a squeegee, similar to the gloves) that really help to grab ALL of the hair.
You operate it like a vacuum — just run it back and forth across the upholstery and it grabs everything right up!
It’s also super convenient that the fur and hair stays inside the contraption. You just push a little button on the lint trap and the lid pops up so you can remove everything:
This fur remover is great because there’s no hair flying all over as you use it!
I prefer this tool to my rubber gloves because it cleans up a bigger space much quicker than using my hands. Plus I don’t have to gather up all of the excess fur as I work.
This Chom tool is especially great for getting around the sides of the couch and chairs:
It’s so much faster than using your hands or a traditional lint remover!
The animals watched as I cleaned the sofas this morning…they were ready to settle back down to spread more fur. 😂:
I still like using the gloves for getting into crevices between cushions, but for everything else this tool can get into tight spots pretty well.
The cats love these upholstered dining chairs…they sit on the back and cuddle up on the cushions ALL the time:
I’ve used this tool on upholstered furniture, ottomans, benches, fabric poufs — even blankets, carpet and rugs for a quick touch up!
These two pet hair remover methods are great options when you don’t want to haul out the vacuum cleaner. And sometimes I find they work better to really get all of the hair off of furniture.
