ImpressedLaundry Tips0 Comments

If you are sharing a nest with your fluffy friend such as a kitty or puppy, it’s likely the pet hair
seems to cover everything in your home – such as clothing and other washable items.You can pick hair off with your fingers, of course, but this can take quite a bit of time and unless you are very patient you may not get it all. But, you can actually reduce your own labour by following the tips & tricks below

Shake and Roll
One of the best and quickest ways to remove it is to use a pet hair lint roller or a dry sponge, to help pick up the pet hair before you wash it. You should also shake out all clothes out before put them into the washing machine, and also once it comes out of the wash and before you put it in the dryer.

White Vinegar
Add 1/2 cup white distilled vinegar to the rinse cycle when there are lots of lint or hair. The vinegar will help the fabric fibers relax and “release” the hair. Also, remember do not overload the washing machine. The clothes need room to move freely in the water so that the hair can be loosened and flushed away down the drain.

Pet Grooming
If your have an outdoor space at your home, do it outside so that the hair can fly around and not inside your house. If you have indoor pets, use a towel and lay your pet on the towel when brushing, that way you avoid the hair getting on the floor and the fabric will trap more hair.


For prevention, don’t let your animals sit in your drawer or closet. Try to hang most of your clothing items. Dogs and cats usually don’t lie on your hang-ups. The last but not least, don’t fold your clothes if your pet sleep on your bed! Folding clean laundry on top of a pet hair covered surface is just asking for hair covered clothes.
