Top 5 Pet Hair Removers
All the hair your pet sheds is worth the snuggles, kisses, tail wags, and purrs. Still, that hair can be a nuisance when it covers your clothes, sheets, pillowcases, and furniture! At Carey Animal Hospital in Cincinnati, OH, we’ve browsed the web to look for some of the best (and most affordable) pet hair removers currently available on the market. If your basic lint roller isn’t doing the trick, consider one of the products listed below instead!

1.ChomChom Roller Pet Hair Remover
With 173,541 reviews on Amazon and a 4.5-star rating, it’s hard not to include the ChomChom Roller pet hair remover at the top of our list. This tool effectively removes dog and cat hair from a wide variety of surfaces, including carpets, sofas, pillows, clothing (if fabric is laid on a flat surface, otherwise the tool is a bit bulky to use on clothing), and car interiors. It’s easy to use and comes with a built-in receptacle for storing hair once it’s been picked up. And once you’re done cleaning, all you have to do is press a button to empty the receptacle. Even better, this roller does not use disposable adhesives, meaning it’s fully reusable for as long as you need it.
2. FurDozer X6 6-in-1 Pet Hair Remover & Auto Detailer (by Neater Pet Brands)
There’s something special about having multiple tools in one. This made-in-the-USA pet hair remover boasts 3 squeegee blades, 2 textured pads, and 1 crevice tool for more detailed cleaning. Thanks to its versatility, the FurDozer works well on all kinds of surfaces, including car interiors, carpets, sofas, and much more. When you use it, it pushes all the hair into a clump for easy removal and disposal. It also works great at removing deeply embedded pet hairs (every pet owner’s dilemma).
Additionally, the FurDozer is reusable and can be cleaned easily. It consists of hi-tech rubber material that is gentler on surfaces, so you won’t have to worry about damaging fabrics or upholstery. However, this doesn’t make the tool any less effective at pet hair removal.
3. Analan Mini Pet Hair Detailer
If you want a portable pet hair remover that works great on the go (or in the car), consider the Mini Pet Hair Detailer by Analan. Almost small enough to fit in your palm, this tool is surprisingly effective on multiple surfaces and has rubber grooves instead of metal teeth to allow for thorough, but gentle, hair removal.
While not ideal for larger-scale jobs, the Analan Mini Pet Hair Detailer has a simple but comfortable design for holding and three grooved sides for three levels of cleaning. It’s highly versatile, reusable, and easy to keep clean. We would recommend this tool for pet owners who frequently need to remove pet hair from their cars or other small spaces.
4. Bounce Pet Hair and Lint Guard Mega Dryer Sheets
If you want to remove pet hair from your laundry, these dryer sheets might be just what you need. While they’re not reusable, the Bounce Pet Hair and Lint Guard Mega Dryer Sheets were tested and found to remove a vast majority of pet hair from garments. A bonus of this product is that it can soften your fabrics at the same time. These sheets are designed to trap more pet hair and lint than Bounce’s regular dryer sheets, and can do their job in as little as one 20-minute dry cycle.
5. OXO Furlifter Pet Garment Brush Hair Remover
Looking for a new brush-style pet hair removal tool for clothing? Check out the OXO Furlifter Pet Garment Brush Hair Remover. Available on Amazon and at Walmart, this brush is easy to use and super convenient for pet owners who have places to be. The Furlifter can be used over and over and has a self-cleaning base for holding the freshly-removed hair. Simply empty it once it’s full! The tool has directional arrows on it to show you which way to swipe, so make sure you check before using it.
While this pet hair remover is not quite able to pull out the most deeply embedded pet hairs, it does a fine job of removing most, if not all, surface hairs and will leave your garments looking tidy.
