Jodie’s use of the term: a small hint or clever tip! (Think Hints from Heloise!!)

For those of you out there that enjoy the company of a pet or two (or more), you deal with pet hair on a daily basis. Is there an easy way to not carry it with you every minute of the day? I may not have all the answers (don’t tell my husband…he thinks I do have all the answers)…but here are a couple items that make pet hair somewhat manageable—besides the obvious lint rollers. Of course every pet owner has one of those in every room, right?
1-Coated or Leather Jeans. We all know that the advantage of leather couches in our house means no accumulation of pet hair. But have you tried the leather or coated jeans? Oh my golly—they are so, so great! After my first pair of coated jeans, I quickly purchased two other pair in different colors after realizing that my kitty hair did not stick to them like glue! And the coated ones don’t have to be shiny and look leathery. There are so many variations and price points, so if you haven’t tried them, I’d suggest to purchase an inexpensive pair and see for yourself. (Then, you too, can buy more). Here’s two examples to check out:
If you want a certain size or color, email me and I’m happy to try to find what you want.
2.The Pet Fur Remover Sponge. If you don’t have leather couches all over your house, here’s a fabulous reusable tool that really works wonders. We’ve had ours for over 5 years. It doesn’t wear out and it works on all of our upholstery. It basically is your lint roller that never needs replacing…how great is that?
3. Water. Ok…laugh all you want at this suggestion, but when we first started brushing the kitties, half of their fur wound up on me. I stupidly thought that throwing my clothes in the washer would solve that problem, until I found that it really just spread the hair to everything else in the wash. So now, I just run my hands under the faucet, wipe them over my clothes to collect the pet hair, and then ta-da, it’s like I used the lint roller!
What are your trick for winning the war on your pet’s hair? This week’s theme on the blog will be matching sets…are you game?
