Household Hacks To Get Dog Hair Out of Car Seats

A classic lint roller is a convenient tool to remove pet hair from a car. You could also use a vacuum. Still, if you don’t have these items on hand in Conway and need to remove dog hair fast, like before a first date, these are some common household items you can use in a pinch:

  • Damp Rubber Kitchen Gloves
  • Fabric Softener Sheets
  • Duct Tape/Packing Tape
  • An Inflated Balloon: Utilize the static electricity by rubbing a balloon over an area to collect hair. 
  • Velcro Hair Curlers: Just make sure you clean them before using them again.

Tools To Use For Getting Dog Hair Out of a Car

Removing pet hair from a car’s fabric seats is the most difficult. To remove pet hair from leather upholstery simply wipe down the sets with a microfiber cloth or use a lint roller. These are some other tools for getting dog hair out of a car:

  • Pet Hair Removal Mitts: These mitts are made out of a nice soft fabric and gently remove dog hair from your car’s more delicate fabrics or leather upholstery without scratching it.
  • Grooming/Deshedding Glove: Designed to wear while you’re petting your dog or cat, it’s also a great tool for collecting hair from the nooks and crannies in your car.
  • Pet Hair Roller: It has a long handle and sort of looks like a Swiffer but with a super-sticky lint roller at the end.
  • Pet Hair Brush with Rubber Bristles: This product typically comes with different sizes of rubber bristles on each side of the brush and is used either on your pet to pre-emptively remove any shedding hair, or it can be used on your car’s upholstery.
  • Fabric Sweeper: This handy tool is found in most Murrells Inlet grocery stores, It uses two rollers simultaneously to remove pet hair and trap it in a compartment on the tool.
  • Fur Remover Broom: If your dog sheds A LOT, bring out the big guns with this rubber bristle broom for a thorough sweep of the seats and floor.

Helpful Tip for Dog Owners with Gardens

Save your dog’s hair after removing it from your vehicle to help repel pests from your garden. Rodents and deer don’t like the scent of dog and human hair, so if you put your dog’s hair in a breathable burlap bag in your garden, or sprinkle it around the edge of your garden, harmful critters are less likely to bother your Murrells Inlet garden.
