How to Easily Remove Pet Hair from Carpet and Upholstery9/25/2012
If you have pets, whether they're long-haired or short-haired, I'm sure you can sympathize. You may have tried everything you could think of, purchased every product on the market (I bought a $200 vacuum because it was marketed for hairy pets), but to no avail. So, when you hear about I'm about to tell you, you very well may fall over. Brace yourselves, friends! You'll never believe what works....
A simple window squeegee will remove pet hair from carpets and upholstery!You heard it here, folks. It doesn't even need to be a fancy squeegee — just one that's comfortable for you to hold, and bonus points if it has a long, detachable handle.
I'm not going to lie and tell you it's quick and easy. It is definitely easy, but it is not quick. While it is time consuming, it's extremely effective at getting the job done. I purchased my squeegee from Dollar Tree, which goes to prove my point that cost is not a factor in function.
Remember the long, detachable handle I mentioned earlier? Since I had to go around a large room on my hands and knees, scraping my carpet in relatively small sections, I found myself fantasizing about how much quicker (and easier on my body) doing this would've been had my squeegee had a longer handle. If you plan on doing this on a large carpet, find a long handle. Duct tape a broom handle onto yours if you have to... You'll be glad you did.
Will you be trying the squeegee method on your carpets?
