How to Remove Pet Hair: It’s Like Magic

If you need to remove pet hair from a carpet or a chair, put on a pair of latex gloves and rub the surface with the pet hair on it- the pet hair should stick to your gloves.

If you don’t have gloves, dig out that package of birthday balloons. Blow up a balloon and tie off the end. Rub it across the surface that has pet hair on it. The static on the balloon’s surface will attract the hair, which you can collect with your other hand. Then, re-use the balloon to get more hair (just think of the fun your children could have!
