There’s nothing I hate more than dander and pet hair. I love my dog and my cat, but they can sometimes get on my nerves because their hair seems to get absolutely everywhere. On my clothes, on the carpets, on my upholstery, and even in the car, it’s everywhere I look. Fortunately, unlike many other people, I am quite healthy so I don’t even have a mild allergy.
Over the years, I’ve used several tips and tricks to get rid of cat and dog hair conveniently. I’m going to share some of them with you, so keep on reading. One of the first pieces of advice I can give you is to try to keep your home with as many solid surfaces as possible. If you’re lucky enough to live in an area with a warm climate, you don’t even need rugs on your floors. You can get rid of pet dander from furniture, baseboards, walls, and ceilings with an all-purpose cleaner and a rag.
Something I would also suggest would be to invest in the best broom for dog hair. There are several models that you can use efficiently and easily, and many of them are cordless so you can reach every space you want to clean. I’ve opted for a Dirt Devil model because I can turn it into a car vacuum, but it all depends on your personal requirements.
Another tip I recommend is bathing your pet on a regular basis. It goes without saying that this might be a bit tricky if you have a cat, especially one like my own. She hates water so much I can’t even begin to explain. However, you can do this with dogs, and if you have kids, my advice would be to grab an inflatable pool and have a bit of fun in your backyard.
If you’re unlucky and do have some upholstery in your home, it would be great if you used some tape to pick up the hair. Of course, this doesn’t work on large surfaces because nobody wants to waste that much time. Make sure to keep your dog and cat groomed as often as possible. Think of it this way. It’s enjoyable for them because it’s like you are giving them a massage. Plus, they like it because they like you and this way, they’ll feel like you are giving them the attention that they crave.
Also, if you have a dog breed with long hair, don’t hesitate to groom him or her at home or take him or her to a salon. If you have your own machine, there’s a bunch of tutorials you can find online and on sites like YouTube, and many of them are made by professional groomers.
