"Furr - eliminator"

Like most homes with pets, there is fur around. Although our Havanese, Lola, doesn't shed, the cats, Pearl and Zoe do. Their favorite lounging spots are covered with their long black and white hair.

You can purchase many items for pet hair removal, special sponges, tape or vacuuming tools. Or you can try my inexpensive and foolproof tool: everyday latex gloves. Rub the glove over fur covered area and it will clump together making it easy to remove with a final step of vacuuming.

I love it. And I'm sure it will work on German Shorthaired Pointer Hair too! Good tip, Heath!

Three Australian Shepherds. The blue merle who sheds endlessly in black, white and grey sneaks up on the couch to sleep while we are gone. We'll be a great test.
