How to remove dog hair from your clothes?

This is a real inconvenience when you own a dog, our clothes are often covered with their hair and we can encounter difficulties to remove them. Even after our clothes are washed in the machine, it is possible that some hairs remain. So we'll give you some tips on how to easily remove your pets' hair from your clothes.

How to remove dog hair from your clothes?

Choose your clothes well.

Hair will cling more or less easily depending on the texture of the clothing. For example, fleece material attracts hair very strongly. They will then cling to your fleece and it can be difficult to remove the hair from the fabric. It is, therefore, preferable to avoid this material when you have a dog that sheds a lot. On the other hand, denim or some other more synthetic materials may not attract hair, so hair will not cling to this type of clothing.

The color of the clothing will also be important. If you have a dog with a black coat, it is advisable to avoid all-white clothes. On the other hand, you should avoid black clothes with a white dog. In addition, the hair is less visible in certain colors like yellow or blue for example.

Use a roller with an adhesive strip.

The adhesive roller is surely the most known way to remove the hair of his dog on his clothes. The advantage is that the anti-linting adhesive rollers can be found almost everywhere; supermarkets, pet stores, the internet, etc. These rollers are really useful if you have a dog that does not shed a lot or is short-haired. However, they are not always effective when you have a dog with thick fur. Unless you use multiple rollers to remove all the hair from an article of clothing.

Remove the dog's hair with the textile-specific pimple brush.

This is a brush with rubber bristles. It is sold especially for dog owners and for the purpose of getting rid of hair on clothes. This brush has the advantage of being infinitely reusable since it does not need to be recharged or changed as is necessary for adhesive rollers. As you pass this brush over your clothes, the bristles gather, as well as the dust or hair, and you just have to pick them up. This brush can be found in pet stores or on specialized websites.

Put the clothes in the dryer.

After cleaning the washing machine, putting your clothes in the dryer will remove most of the hair. This is an easy and simple solution that is effective in removing pet hair from clothes.

Final word 

We love our pets more than anything, but losing their hair can become a real ordeal on a daily basis. Brushing your dog regularly and taking him to a dog groomer during shedding periods will help reduce hair loss. This way, your clothes will be less stained with your pets' hair.
