Default Best way to rid your car of dog hair

I detail cars for fun, so I have to find ways to be efficient.
With dog hair, what I found that works, fill a bucket with clean water. With dog hair on the carpet, stick your fingers into the water, and scrape them like your raking and all of the dog fur rolls and comes up for you to remove. Here are the "before and after" pictures.

(I thought of licking your fingers and doing it, but.....!!!! )

Thanks for the tip! I had to take both of my mom's dogs to the groomer in my car and I was looking for a way to clean it up.

Default Pet Hair Removal

A couple of things that will remove dog hair from carpet / fabric upholstery:


For removing pet hair from upholstery in your house and car an easy method is to use rubber upholstery napping brush or washing-up glove, those with a raised grip work better.

1. Put the glove on and run it under the tap to make it wet then shake off excess moisture. Run your fingers over the pet hair areas in short scraping strokes. You will find that the hair is easily removed and it is especially easy to get into nooks and crannies

2. A synthetic lava rock or a large pore pumice stone (CarPet Pet Hair Remover)

3. Use a lint roller or masking tape wrapped around your hand for the hard to reach places.

Glove idea from TOGWT works for me. Cheap and I don't risk picking up some mystery sticky liquid from the carpet on my bare skin lol

I just use the wide packing tape and use the sticky part to lift off the dog hair.

I think the best way is to put the dogs in the bed of a truck..... and not in the interior... lol

Good idea on the removal, keep that in mind. I always used the masking tape or duct tape...

Nice work highlighting a great way to get the hair up. Great before and after pics as well! Greg Nichols (not me) from Reflections Detailing in Utah has an article about using a pumice stone to remove dog hair as well. Both are pretty cost effective solutions for what was a long process.

Default clean dog hairs

I have encountered a similar problem. There is a slight dog urine smell in my car. I am going crazy! ! ! Have you tried a hand vacuum cleaner? ? ? I am thinking about investing in one because it is meant to clean the carpet in the car.

Works on auto carpet and fabric upholstery as well.
