    Default Removing pet hair off the carpet before vacuuming

    Just wanted to share the best product I've found for getting my lab/border collie mix's hair off the carpet. I have a so-so vacuum, so getting the most hair off the carpet FIRST is key.

    This thing is amazing for pet hair. The handle leaves a bit to desire but I haven't yet found a regular broom handle that fits.

    Any other products out there that you all use to handle shedding on your pet or to protect your house from being consumed by hair?

    yep, my mom has a similar broom (but not much carpet)

    I have seen hair salons use those, too

    The shipping costs more than the broom thing.

    if you don't mind it not being purple, those things have been around for a long time.

    My MIL has one in (urg) black she bought almost 10 years ago with her then favorite DIL (not me) one night from the home shopping network (or infomercial or whatever)

    your local store (pet or box) might carry a hand held version, usually marketed as 'deshedder' in the pet aisles.

    They used to sell them at the horse expos all the time (yellow handles with black heads)! I've had 2 of them for years, and a small hand held one that works great on the sofa. I actually use one of the large brooms to sweep snow off our vehicles in the winter - no worry about scratching the paint

    ? the only reason I vacuum is to remove the pet hair- why would you remove it before vacuuming?

    because

    I find vacuuming much easier when there is no hair to clog things up.

    or stuff vacuum cleaner bags.

    A short-tined small rake works great too.
