How do I remove hair from furniture?
If your pet moves about the house vigorously, its hair, along with dust, will fall on the furniture. While removing hair from cabinets, cupboards and windowsills is not a problem (just use the right products), removing hair from the couch can be a challenge.
To remove hair from couches and armchairs, a hair glove will come in handy. It’s very practical – just put it on your hand and comb the surface with it. Another way is to use a special vacuum for hair. Before vacuuming your furniture, it’s a good idea to sprinkle baking soda on it to absorb the smell.
