We love our pets over everything, but the reality is that sometimes you can’t stand them. Usually, that’s when you wear your new clothes only to discover your black dress is no longer black but full of pet hair. Well, that’s what you signed on if you decided to get that adorable ball of fur. If you are sharing a house with a pet, then there’s absolutely not any way to completely get rid of their hair. But, by following these tips you can control it.

Implement regular grooming routine

You would not believe how significant grooming is. By beginning regular grooming sessions with your pet, you will manage to decrease the shedding drastically. That doesn’t have to be a strenuous and difficult task. Even if few minutes of brushing them daily can mean a less vacuuming for you later. Every time you feel that brushing your pet is strenuous, consider the fact that each and every hair you remove now is one less hair you’ll have to clean up later. On top of that, every grooming session can help you to further develop your bond.


We all know that pet hair usually does not cooperate with us when we want to vacuum it. But, there’s a trick to it. Before you begin vacuuming apply baking soda on the carpet. It has two functions; it can enable you to get rid of odor and to loosen pet hair making it easier to vacuum it later. Vacuuming is not a challenging job, but there are still some tricks that can facilitate the process. Go forward, back and then again forward, but on an angle.

Washable blankets will save your life. Set them over pet’s favorite spots and over sofas or armchairs. They will keep the hair from getting on the furniture, and you can easily remove it if someone is visiting or when you need to wash them. You wouldn’t believe how a small and inexpensive action like that could make your life that much simpler.

Use a lint roller

Always have a lint roller desire the doors or around the mirror. Every time you are getting out of the house check for pet hair on your clothing and use a lint roller to resolve the problem. That won’t take you a lot of time, but it will help you to look tidier when you are getting out.

You can even use the lint roller to remove pet hair from fabric, but a better idea would be to use a damp washcloth. Wipe with the cloth in 1 direction and the hair will gather making it effortless to pick it up by hand.
