That’s why you’re here, So here we go
Simple and Easy Methods to Get Dog Hair out of Your Carpet
A good vacuuming round is probably the best way to start any hair removing session.
Some vacuum cleaners come with pet hair attachment that you can use.
Go over areas of your carpet twice with alternative directions to loosen up stubborn hair, start vacuuming as much loose hair off your couch.
Remember to vacuum the sides and corners
These are available at any hardware store around you with different types and various suction powers.
Be careful with large amounts of dog hair as it may clog up the vacuum cleaner and damage it.
This is a good method to remove loose hair as fast as you can. As for the more stubborn hair, the next ways are probably more useful.
There is a variation to this basic method I recommend deeply,
1.Apply baking soda to the hair infested areas of your carpet.
2.Let rest for a while.
3.Start your vacuuming session.
Not only this will help clean the carpet but also it will leave it smelling great
If you are okay with getting wet to get your puppy’s hair out, then you should definitely try these:
#1 wet Hands
This is the easiest method of them all.
You simply get a washcloth and soak it in water, Rub it against your carpet in a downwards motion.
After getting wet, the embedded dog hair beneath your carpet will get heavy. It will be harder for it to stick to any surfaces.
Now rub your wet hands against the carpet and you will find the wet hair just rolling up to form a ball of fur that you can pick and throw it in the pin.
It will get kinda messy as the hair will also stick to your hand in an unpleasant way, But it works
#2 Sponge Mob
This works best after using the vacuum to suck all loose dog hair off the carpet, for the sticky remains that didn’t come off you can do the following:
1.Get a clean kitchen sponge mob and a spray bottle of water.
2.Spray the sponge mob with water
3.Move the sponge mob across the carpet gently to remove the hair from the carpet fibers
The hair will eventually clump into a fur ball that you can remove it easily with your hands
#3 Fabric Softener
This approach will only take some creativity and a little bit of time to be perfect.
Here is how it goes:
1.Get a spray bottle and mix three parts of water with one part fabric softener in it.
2. Spray your carpet with the solution and let it sit for a few moments.
3. Vacuum all the hair off
The ingredients of the fabric softener will loosen up the dog’s hair on the carpet threads. making it much more easier to be vacuumed than before
If you have a profound position against using MILD CHEMICALS into your dog’s living environment,
Then you should skip this method and move to the next.
Yes, you read that right. This is the pinnacle of modern science in the war against your fluffy four-legged friend’s hair.
OK, Let jokes aside, This way is just too easy and too effective and this is how it works:
1. Buy anti-static spray from any grocery or drug store near you or you make it at home by mixing water and fabric softener in a spray bottle, as we mentioned before
2. Spray on the parts of your carpet that have stubborn hair on them.
3. The spray will remove the electric charge on the hair that makes it stick to the fabric of the carpet. So basically it will loosen up and that will make the hair removal process much more easier.
4. Simply then wipe the hair with a soft cloth and it will come out.
This is a good household object life hack that will make cleaning dog hair off your carpet a breeze.
Wear a pair of basic disposable gloves, get them slightly dampened, run your hand up and down your hair covered carpet.
The hair will eventually stick to the gloves then simply rinse off the gloves and repeat till you get all the hair.
Also, a dry rubber glove can also do the trick. So keep one under your sofa for quick touch-ups.
I know this is strange but bear with me, please. Using a squeegee to remove your dog’s hair out of your carpeting and upholstery is actually a smart way and much more handy than what you think.
How to use:
1.Fill a can with soapy water
2. Spray the carpet but don’t overdo it.
3. Rub the squeegee against the carpet to remove the dog hair.
4. Remove the hair off the squeegee after every wipe.
That’s it, the dog hair is finally out of your carpet.
