Living in a multi-cat household, I am fully aware that cats shed a lot of hair, especially in places they sleep regularly. My cats love to perch in their favorite lounge areas – usually somewhere soft, near a window, bed or on the back of a large chair. As you can imagine, these places accumulate more hair than usual. For years, I have used beach towels as furniture covers. Then, when they are too hairy, I exchange for a new, clean towel.
Recently in a client’s home, she introduced me to a solution that works well for her cat hair problem and I don’t know why I never tried it before. She has a woven-cloth lint brush that she uses in her cat’s sleeping areas every few days. It works like a charm and much better, in my opinion, than a sticky tape roller!
Surprisingly, when I searched for lint brushes online, most of the shopper reviews are about cats, “Works great for cat hair!” Who knew? Lint brushes can be used on clothing, furniture, pillows, and accessories like towels, sheets, and blankets (and I’m sure they work for dog hair, too). You should be able to pick one up from Walmart, Bed Bath & Beyond, or Amazon for $10 or less. Try it and let me know what you think!
