I have 7 cats so I have cat hair every where. Does anyone know of anything besides a lint brush that is effective in removing it from your clothes. Sometimes this does not work is their any magic, I got a complaint at work the other day and I need help.

I agree with most everyone else. The only thing that works perfectly is packing tape. I use a lint brush for most of my cat hair removal, but for getting all the hairs, use packing tape.

Have a vitamins first for your cat so that it don't losse hair. Then after vitamins clean your surroundigs and after that go to your clothes and wash them in washing machine for one day.

before you leave for work you could try to take some packing tape and put it on your clothes to take the hair off. This is what i usually do. or don't let the cats in your closet, so that the hair stays off your clothes. You could keep your clothes in those bags from the dry cleaners, so that your work clothes don't get hairy. You could wash your cats in special hypoallergenic shampoo, which cuts down on their shedding. THere are also these tape roller things, i find them at the grocery store. Just roll your clothes with these, and it gets all the hair off. I can't remember the exact name ... but you can find them in most pet stores, and in the pet aisle of most grocery stores.

The tape idea works wonders. You can also use a very slightly damp sponge, or one of those petting gloves with the rubbery nubs on the palm. They work good on furniture.

I never had any cat hairs but I have had the odd few dogs hairs. I never found the brushes much good so I used my vacuum cleaner. I put it on a slow speed with the curtain attatchment on it and I vacuumed the hairs off. I still do this when I am going out somewhere and I get some of my own hairs on my black coat.

Another use for duct tape! I use the rollers but find them lacking for getting pet hair off. I use tape as the above does. Any kind will work, Ijust prefer the duct tape.

Good morning BK, I had 2 cats but my son took the white persian when he moved so some of my cat hair problem has ended, although my king tabby still sheds his share. What I do is buy cheap clear packing tape and roll it around my hand sticky side out and just tap away at the hair changing sides as it becomes congested with pet fur... great on clothes to.

The tape idea is great - they also make those rollers with the sticky peel-off adhesive layers. You roll it around until it is full of fuzz and pet hair, then peel off the top layer, throw it away, and voila! onto a fresh piece. Also, they make these really cool rubber sponges that are made for removing pet hair. You just rub them (dry) over any surface with cat hair (or dog hair, human hair, fuzz, etc!) and it sort of rolls up the hair into a small pile that is easy to discard. You can use them over and over again! They sell them at pet stores and also at Walmart, Target, etc in the pet care aisles.

I use one of those rollers with the sticky tape on it. I use woolite's version and it works great on my work clothes. I have also heard that if you use a bounce dryer sheet in the dryer that it helps make your clothes lint and hair repellent, don't know how well that works, though.

tape works great! lint brushes work too, but i always seem to have tape on hand. we thought black cat hair wouldn't show up, but it does more so then the blonde kitty hair.
