We all love our pets dearly — but the hair is just sometimes too much. Especially on laundry day!
The most frustrating experience ever is getting a load of laundry out of the dryer just to see your beloved pet’s hair still clinging to the fabric. It’s left more than one mom (or dad) feeling hopeless!
But you don’t have to fight this fight alone. There are a few tricks you can use to help get rid of pesky pet hair, and we’re sharing them in this post.
Use Anti-Static Tricks
There are quite a few ways to combat static when it’s time to do your laundry, and they can help loosen the bond between pet hair and your clothes. The best two tactics are:
- Anti-static sprays
- Dryer balls/sheets
Either of these options will either altogether remove hair or loosen the static hold enough so that lint rolling is easier. You’ll likely find more hair in your lint catcher though, so clean that out between loads!
Use a Steamer To Loosen Hold
For delicate items (or dry clean only options), consider buying a steamer to help with pet hair. Similar to anti-static options, the steam will loosen the bond between the hair and your clothes, letting you clean them off much more easily.
Wet Microfiber Cloths In The Dryer
If you want to avoid chemicals from sprays or dryer sheets, another alternative is to add a couple of wet microfiber towels to your dryer. Just like the sheets, they’ll help catch stray hair and leave your clothes much cleaner at the end of the day.
Last but not least, your first line of defense should always be a lint roller! They’re super handy, can easily find a home in a car or purse, and will reliably help you keep the pet hair to a dull roar.
