Getting rid of cat hair around the house can often seem like a futile job because as soon as you wipe it up, your cat thinks you have cleaned that spot just for them and they redeposit the fur. Although it is a never ending task, there are ways to make getting rid of cat hair easier and more efficient.
A good vacuum always helps. Keeping cat hair at bay requires regular vacuuming so make it count with a specialized vacuum. Dyson makes an "animal" vacuum cleaner that is engineered to remove pet hair more forcefully. If you don't want to buy a specialized vacuum, make sure you have an attachment for your vacuum that is bristled for better hair removal (bristles get down into carpets and grab more hair).
Another tool to always have around are lint brushes. This is more for getting cat hair off of smaller areas such as clothes and chair cushions. There are a few varieties of lint brushes, one being the disposable sticky rolls, which are effective but costs money to keep refilling them. These are preferable among consumers because of their ease of use and they are much quicker than manual lint brushes. They do, however, require a little more effort than other hair removal tools.
Another choice is brushes that look like paddles covered in velour. These are reusable and have two sides for more use and less maintenance. "Evercare Magik Two Side Lint Brushes" are a popular choice. All you need to do with these types of lint tools is empty the canister or wipe the fur into the trash, no refills required.
Two even more economical tools for taking care of cat hair is a rubber glove or a damp cloth. A rubber glove is simple and can be easily tossed out. If you have extra rags or washcloths around, just make them damp and you have a reusable and effective cat hair fighter.
