The Best Ways To Remove Pet Hair From Laundry

Do you have a pet that sheds? If so, you know how frustrating it can be to try and get all of the hair off of your clothes before you wash them. Your washer can handle some pet hair but it can quickly become clogged if there is too much. And, even if your washer can handle it, you probably don’t want to have to pull out all of the hair from the lint trap after every load! So what’s the best way to remove pet hair from laundry before washing? We will teach you here!

Here’s How To Remove Pet Hair From Laundry

Tired of constantly having hair on your clothes? Here are some tips for removing pet hair from laundry.

Removing Pet Hair Before the Washer

First, make sure you get as much hair off of your laundry as possible before you wash it.

1. Shake It Off

This is probably the quickest and easiest way to remove pet hair from laundry. Simply take your article of clothing and give it a good shake. Doing this outside is best so you don’t make even more of a mess!

2. Use a Lint Roller

One way to remove pet hair from the laundry is by using a lint roller. This is a quick and easy way to get rid of any hair that may be clinging to your clothes. Simply roll the lint roller over the affected area and the hair will adhere to the sticky surface. Look for the oversized ones specifically designed for pets, to make it easier.

3. Use Tape

You can also use tape to remove pet hair from your clothes. Simply lay a piece of tape over the hairy area and then peel it off. The hair will come off with the tape. Keep using new pieces as you go.

4. Use a Fabric Brush

Another way to remove pet hair from the laundry is by using a fabric brush. This will work best on items that are made of thicker fabrics such as jackets and sweaters. Simply brush the fabric in one direction and the hair will come off.

Removing Pet Hair In the Washer

Even if you remove as much pet hair as possible from your clothes before washing them, some will usually still end up in the washer, here are some ways to make sure your washer is ready. We should also mention if your washer is having issues draining, you may not be removing enough pet hair.

1. Wash With Vinegar

Another way to remove pet hair from your laundry is by washing your clothes with vinegar. Simply add a cup of vinegar to the washing machine along with your clothes. The vinegar will help to loosen any hair that may be clinging to the fabric and make it easier to remove.

2. Use Fur Zappers

If you have a lot of pet hair in your laundry, you may want to invest in a fur zapper. These devices are designed to remove pet hair from clothes and can be placed in the washing machine. They work by generating static electricity that helps to loosen the hair from the fabric so it can be removed more easily.

Removing Pet Hair in The Dryer

And finally, for any leftover hair, the dryer is the last stop! You shouldn’t be seeing much hair at this point, but let’s get rid of the last of it.

Removing Pet Hair in The Dryer

1. Dryer Sheets for Pet Hair

One way to remove pet hair from the laundry in the washer is by using dryer sheets and even better are the ones made for pet hair. Simply place a dryer sheet on top of the clothes in the washing machine and it will help to remove any hair that may be clinging to them. This can also help with any dryer odor issues.

2. Wool Dryer Balls

Wool dryer balls are another great way to remove pet hair from your laundry. Simply place them in the dryer with your clothes and they will help to loosen any hair that may be clinging to them. The wool fibers will also help to absorb any hair so it doesn’t end up on your clothing.

These are just a few of the ways you can remove pet hair from laundry. By using these tips, you can keep your clothes looking and feeling great, even if you have pets. And if you’re in need of any washer repair, don’t forget to give Best Service Company a call!
