If you are anything like the millions of Americans that cruise around with their furbaby riding shotgun, or at the very least in your vehicle at all, undoubtedly your ride has become a magnet for pet hair.
You may try to combat the issue with blankets or even vacuuming regularly because there is no way you are kicking Fido out- yet nothing seems to remove the hair from your car entirely. So just how do you remove and keep your vehicle’s interior pet hair free?
Start by vacuuming– it won’t pick up all of the stubborn strands embedded into your interior, but it’s a great place to start.
Below are some additional tips to keep the hair off the seats.
- Rubber gloves. Grab a dry glove, yes the same yellow ones you use to clean your house, and in one direction, run your hand over the seats and carpet. Feel free to dampen the glove for better results.
- Balloons. The static electricity from an inflated balloon is excellent for collecting stubborn pet hair.
- Good ole’ Duct Tape. Using tape is a cost-effective way to pick up pesky hairs left by your furry little loved ones. Packing tape is lighter and is less likely to leave residue behind.
- Ladies, grab your pumice stones! These callus scrapers work wonders on your car’s interior, more specifically on the flooring and car mats. Make sure you do a small test spot to ensure there will be no damage to your upholstery. You need a pumice stone, spray bottle, fabric softener, and some water. Mix, spray and wipe the hair away in one fluid direction.
- Dryer sheets. Believe it or not, the very thing that makes your laundry static-free is a favorite tool to keep your seats and carpet clean. Grab some fresh, unused dryer sheets to remove pet hair from all of your vehicle surfaces with ease. You don’t even need water. Just run the cloth over the seats, floor, and console to remove dust and pet hair.
