Using a squeegee to remove your dog’s hair out of your blankets and upholstery is actually a smart way and much more handy than what you think.

1.Fill a can with soapy water

2. Spray the blanket but don’t overdo it.

3. Rub the squeegee against the blanket to remove the dog hair.

4. Remove the hair off the squeegee after every wipe.

#5 A Solution of Water and Fabric Softener

Make a solution of 7 parts water and 1 part fabric softener and put it in a spray can.

The ingredients on the fabric softener will help loosen the hair by breaking any static bond that formed between the hair and the carpet.

This will soften the dog hair making it easier to clean.

How to use:

1. Spray the solution into the parts of the blanket that were difficult to get the hair out of before.

2. Simply get a wet washcloth or your gloved hand and rub it across the blanket.

3. The hair will gather around the cloth or your hand more easily now.

4. Remove the hair off the cloth or your hand and repeat.

#6 Vacuum Cleaner

I should have mentioned this early, but I didn’t because it is not as effective with blankets as with carpeting and upholstery

With blankets, dog hair can be really stubborn as it weaves into the blanket’s fabrics

Needless to say, a good round of vacuuming is the best way to start any hair removal session.

This is a good method to remove loose hair as fast as you can.

How to use:

1. Go over areas twice with alternative directions to loosen up stubborn hair

2. Start vacuuming as much loose hair off your blanket. Remember to vacuum the sides.

Be careful with large amounts of dog hair
as it may clog up the vacuum cleaner and damage it.

# 7 Rubber Soles

I know, Right!!?

Rubber soles of shoes such as cowboy boots or trainers can pick up dog hair effectively.

How to Use:

1. Simply, Wear them and drag your foot across the blanket. amazingly the dog hair will be bunched up.

2. Then, Simply lift it up.

Another way is to:

1. Hold them in your hands

2. Rub them against the blanket again and again. With this way, you can remove the hair thoroughly.

It’s better to choose a pair of new shoes.
In case you use the old one,
make sure it’s empty of Dirt before cleaning.

That’s it, the dog hair is finally out of your blanket.
