How to Get Dog Hair Out of Your Car
Periodically, your furry friend will be traveling with you in your car. However, dog hair attached to your seats can be a nuisance and can be difficult to remove. Here we discuss different tricks and methods to get dog hair out of your car.
Method One – Using A Liquid Solution
Mix equal parts of fabric softener and water to make a solution. The solution will loosen the pet hair clinging to seats and carpet inside your car and make pet hair removal easy.
Fill a spray bottle with the solution and spray it on the carpet and upholstery that you need to clean. Alternatively, you can also wear rubber gloves and dip your fingers in the solution and to make the seats and carpet wet.
After the desired area is wet with the solution, brush your hand (with rubber gloves) on the areas where you see pet hair. Rubbing the gloves against the seats and carpet should collect the pet hair on the glove. Alternatively, you can also use a pumice stone to scrub the area and collect dog hair.
Once the area has dried, use a vacuum cleaner to remove any dog hair left behind. For better results, use vacuum attachments with small rubber bristles.
Method Two- Create a Sticky surface
A lint brush or roller is a good tool to remove dog hair from car seats and carpets. Purchase a lint roller or brush from a local drug store. Remove the protective covering and roll the brush where you see dog hair sticking to the surface. When you roll the lint brush, the dog hair will stick to the brush.
You can use packaging tape or duct tape to collect dog hair from your car’s upholstery. Wrap your hand with duct tape or packing tape in a way where the sticky surface is facing outwards. Pat your hand on areas where you see dog hair. The dog hair will stick to the tape and can be easily removed from your car’s seats and carpet.
Preventing Dog Hair
Most dog lovers love to take their furry friend wherever they go. You can reduce the dog hair problem in your car by taking some preventive steps. For example, before taking your dog with you in the car, brush its coat thoroughly.

Alternatively, you can use a dog travel crate that will not only keep your furry friend safe but will also reduce the dog hair problem.
Pet hair clinging to car seats does not look good and might also stick to your clothes. The methods given above will remove the dog hair without causing damage to your car’s seats.
