When you have animals, fur is an intimate part of your life. That’s why what you sit on is called FUR-niture! I do love to snuggle with my furries on my couch and bed.
I’m very understanding of hair and fur, as long as it’s not in my mouth. Blech!! I have attempted to try to remove fur from my couch and other things, but I understand that I’m only mitigating the issue. The fur won’t be gone unless the source is, and that is not an option. Of course the boys get brushed at least weekly, but unless I become a bit more OCD and step-it-up to daily, we’re going to have fur issues.
This is my black sheet from the travel trailer. I don’t think they are of real high quality and I don’t know if that matters. The sheets and the rugs in the camper really attract the fuzz. It could also be the fur to floor ratio… I think I’ve only got 35 sqft of floor!!
I have tried many things to collect the fur. Here are some of the weapons I’ve been told remove fur:
In the end, I’ve not found a product yet that doesn’t entail a bunch of work. However, the sticky tape words fairly well, but you will blow through a roll in one Queen sized sheet. Go to the Dollar store for this tape, buy 10. That should get you through one large bed.
The next best method is to use rubber dish gloves. They must be the type pictured above, not like sterile rubber gloves. Flatten the sheet on something and rub the glove over the surface, it will collect the fur into a clump, which then can be removed. This works awesome on couches, chairs and carpets.
Has anyone had any luck with any products I’ve not mentioned, or even what I have mentioned? Let us know!!
