How to Remove Pet Hair from Almost Anywhere

Share this article

We love our pets, and that’s exactly why we tend to let them go almost anywhere around the house. Pets add so much joy to our lives -- but if you have the shedding type, they add hair, too! Most pet owners, and their guests, are always thinking about how to get dog hair off clothes. We’ve been in the business of cleaning pet hair for years. In fact, we now have a whole line of Pet Hair Eraser products to help with this small pain point of having a pet. So, whether you’re looking for tips and tricks for how to get dog hair out of carpet or just the best dog hair remover in general, we’re confident we have a product that will help you pick up all those furry pet messes.

Pet Hair Everywhere

And we mean everywhere. Our pets love napping. They do it pretty much anywhere, and they’re not the ones to discriminate against the couch, the floor or your bed. If it’s comfy and they’re tired, they’ll take a snooze. And after that snooze, they’ll leave behind their hair. Enter Pet Hair Eraser® Turbo Plus Vacuum Cleaner. It’s so much more than just a vacuum cleaner to clean pet hair from floors. Sure, it’s got a patented Tangle-Free Brush Roll that keeps that annoying pet hair from wrapping around it, and a set of LED headlights that illuminate pet hair on the ground, but that’s just the start. This vacuum has a quick release extension wand that is always on and always ready to clean whatever above-floor messes you may encounter. And if you’re looking specifically for ideas on how to remove dog hair from couches, we recommend using the Pet TurboEraser® Tool on upholstery to get that hairy task done.

"[I] have a Siberian Husky and it took me forever to find this vacuum cleaner. I was hesistant at first because my dog sheds a lot and I doubted the cleaner BUT it is absolutely amazing. Never have I seen a vacuum cleaner pick up dog hair like this one does. My sofa looked brand new, my car mats were cleaned easily. I am in love with this vacuum cleaner. I highly recommend it!!!!"* -Kenzity, 5-star review.

If your dogs are anything like ours, they love taking a ride in the car. Cats, not so much. So, what’s the best way to get dog hair out of cars? We’ve got a few solutions! This is where many of our hand vacuums come in handy. They’re small, so they’re perfect for quick cleanups, especially in the car. Some of our favorites are Pet Hair Eraser Cordless Pet Vacuum and Pet Hair Eraser® Lithium Ion Cordless Pet Hand Vacuum. Both come with specialized pet tools, like the crevice and upholstery tools, to get dog hair off the seats and out of small nooks and crannies.

"Cars and stairs! That's where the pet vac really shines. We have 4 dogs and a cat in our extended family, and all of them visit us at some time or another. Our stairs are carpeted and there is no electric outlet near them. This hand vac does a great job of de-hair-ing the stairs - even the risers. I was astonished at how much hair was removed! It also gets the hair out of car upholstery and off our couches....dogs get hair on everything!”- Wynee, 5-star review

We even have ways to get the hair directly off your dog. Our Pet Hair Eraser® Grooming Gloves come in 3 sizes; medium, large and extra-large. They work to de-shed your pet and also give him or her a gentle massage at the same time. Some customers have even used them to get hair off other spots in their home.

"My husband even uses the gloves to pull hair off of our Cat's favorite spot, on the couch, off of our sweaters, and off of the carpets!! They work way better than a lint roller!! I use these grooming gloves daily! This feels like a high quality product, fits perfectly, and pretty much keeps our whole household hair free!”* - Sasskeys3, 5-star review
