Pet hair is apart of my daily life.
I have no problem with fur on every single surface in my house. After all, I have one of the breeds on the list of top twenty dogs that shed so if I didn’t have pet hair everywhere it would be a concern.
However, I do have people that come to my house that aren’t all about pet hair mostly because they have allergies to it. Not all pet hair, just brown thick Newfie hair.
For these people I need to clean.
There’s nothing worse than having your SIL over for dinner and she’s sneezing so bad that she can hardly talk because you forgot to vacuum or when your son’s best friend spends the night unexpectedly and lays on the couch that the dogs lays on and you wake up to him with a box full of tissues next to him and used tissues all over the couch. Poor kid.
This is why I sometimes need to remove as much fur from my house on certain occasions. If we never had people over I wouldn’t dust, vacuum or mop. EVER. (just kidding)
Since it’s easy for me to forget things I’m in love with this infographic from our friends over at Neato:
How To Remove Pet Hair From Every Surface.
I never knew about the white vinegar and I’ve heard some people recommend using a rake on carpet to remove the deep pet hair before vacuuming. Good tip! Looking for a new vacuum cleaner?
Note-we trim for neatness to get rid of excess fur we don’t cut just to stop shedding! I think it goes without saying that if you need to cut your pet’s fur because you don’t like pet hair in your house you should get a pet fish. <–Just my opinion.
