If you’re a pet-lover you might be wondering how to remove pet hair from your clothes in the dryer. The good news is, all it takes is a Bounce® Dryer Sheet.
How to Remove Cat and Dog Hair From Clothes
One option is drying your clothes together with a Bounce® Dryer Sheet before washing. The anti-static properties of Bounce® Dryer Sheets help to repel a lot of that pet hair (as the sheets balance out the static electricity of the atoms in each item of clothing with positively charged particles), so you can then wash and dry your pet hair-free clothes as usual. We recommend this option if you’re dealing with clothes covered in a lot of fur.
Another way to go is simply washing your furry clothes, then pop them into the dryer with a Bounce® Dryer Sheet. By the time your clothes are dry that clingy pet hair will be gone.
Removing Excessive Pet Hair with Household Objects
Tried and true methods for the removal of excessive pet hair prior to washing and drying your clothes can involve the use of household objects. For example, put a latex glove on and rub the problematic surface to grab loose hair. Another quick-fix for removing pet hair is using the prickly side of Velcro to grab and clear away fur from your clothing.
Removing Pet Hair from Your Carpet or Upholstery
There are also some pretty handy ways to remove pet hair from other surfaces around your home. For your carpet, add a spoonful of liquid fabric softener into a spray bottle and top it up with water, shake to mix, and spritz the solution onto your carpet. After a couple of minutes just vacuum up that forest of pet hair that has risen to the surface. You can also wrap some sticky tape around your hand with the sticky part facing out, and tap it on your fur-covered upholstered furniture to lift off the hairs.
Pet owners are known for two things: their devotion to their best furry friends, and the extraordinary amount of pet hair on their clothes and furniture. That’s why every pet lover needs Bounce Dryer Sheets in their life, because loving your pets doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have fur-free clothes.
