How to rid your clothing of pet hair

We all love our pets, but what we don’t love is their hair covering our clothing. Getting rid of pet hair is not as simple as putting your clothing in the washing machine. If you were to do that, the hair would clump together and clog your washing machines drainage pipe. This could result in your washing machine breaking.

Rather than risk breaking your washing machine, here are some pre-treatment methods to rid your clothing of pet hair. 

  • A lint roller
  • Sticky tape 
  • Rubber gloves
  • A sponge
  • Tumble dryer

A lint roller 

A lint roller is one-sided adhesive paper wrapped around a barrel with a handle attached for easy use. They are incredibly handy when it comes to removing pet hair. Simply roll it over your hairy item of clothing and observe as the adhesive paper picks up the pet hair. If you notice the paper becoming clogged with pet hair, simply remove the top layer of adhesive paper and there will be another layer ready to use underneath.

Sticky tape 

If you don’t have a lint roller available, sticky tape can be just as effective. Simply tear off a strip of tape and lay it over your item of clothing. As you pull the tape from your clothing the pet hairs will come away with it. Repeat this process all over your garment until it is pet hair-free. Depending on the size of your clothing, and how hairy it is, you may need several strips of tape to complete the dehairing process.

Rubber gloves

An ordinary pair of rubber gloves are handy for washing the dishes and removing pet hair. Begin by laying your garment on a flat surface. Next, put on your rubber gloves and rub your clothing item. The movement will create friction between the fabric and the gloves, resulting in the pet hairs becoming loose and forming piles. These piles of hair are a lot easier to pick up and dispose of. Once the bigger clumps of pet hair have been disposed of, slightly wet your rubber gloves and repeat the process of rubbing your garment. This will pick up any stray hairs left on your clothes. 

A sponge 

If you are looking for a way to remove pet hairs without getting your clothes wet, use an ordinary kitchen sponge. Firstly, make sure that your sponge is completely clean and dry. Next, lay your clothing on a flat surface. Take your sponge and slowly rub it over the surface of your item. Your pet hairs will stick to the sponge and your clothing will remain dry. This method is best for quickly removing small amounts of pet hair, however, is not as effective if your clothing is completely covered in hair.

Tumble dryer

Using a tumble dryer is the best way to remove pet hair from multiple items of clothing. Put your items in the dryer and use a 10 minute, no heat, dryer cycle. This will soften the fibres in your clothing and loosen the pet hairs. Unlike a washing machine, your tumble dryer comes with a lint trap that will catch the pet hairs and prevent damage to your machine. Once the cycle has been completed, remove each item of clothing and give it a shake to remove stray hairs. If your clothes need washed, put them in the washing machine and add ½ a cup of white vinegar to the cycle to keep the clothes loose and remove deep-set pet hairs.
