Getting fur off the furniture

Your friends are coming over for a visit and you’re worried about all of the fur on the chairs and sofa left by your beloved pet.  Here are some tips for removing pet hair from the furniture. You’ll need some inexpensive tools for this job.  A rubber tipped brush can be used to ball up longer cat and dog hair from couches and rugs. I use a lint roller because my cats hair is short.  Use the kind with disposable sticky sheets. Even a piece of packing tape will do for a small area. A damp dryer sheet will pick up some pet fur as well. It’s also a good idea to keep cotton throws on the seats of your furniture. It’s a little extra laundry but at least you won’t have your guests going home with a bunch of fur on their pants!  Remember in addition to playing with your pet with his dog or cat toys, brush him regularly. This will keep the shedding down a little.
