Cat Shedding Control

Unless you’re the proud owner of a hairless Sphynx, you probably have a collection of cat hair around your house. Whether it’s on the bed and lounge or random tumbleweeds rolling down the hallway, it’s amazing just how much a cat can shed. But fear not, there are effective ways to combat your little shedding machine and work towards a hair-free home. 

Lint Brush

An oldie but a goodie, the lint brush is an easy way to remove cat hair. While it’s useful for small areas with minimal build-up, you may need to look at something more powerful for regular use. Consider investing in a high-quality brush with strong bristles that can easily capture and remove stubborn cat hair from various surfaces. 

 All Washed Up  

An affordable and surprisingly effective hair remover could be right under your nose – the simple rubber glove. Put on a damp rubber glove and run your hand over fabric surfaces. You'll be amazed at how much cat hair it picks up, even after vacuuming. The static charge created by the glove helps attract and lift the hair from the fabric. 

Lint Roller 

With its super-sticky surface, a lint roller is a convenient and efficient tool for removing cat hair. Simply roll it over the surface, and the hair magically transfers to the roller. This is particularly useful for removing hair from clothing. Keep in mind that you may need to regularly replace the adhesive rolls to maintain its effectiveness. 

Dust Buster

Another easy way to remove cat hair is with a powered dust buster or handheld vacuum. While this method is highly effective on smooth surfaces like floors and tables, you'll need a backup solution for fabric surfaces. Consider using a brush attachment or a specialised pet hair attachment for your vacuum cleaner to effectively remove hair from upholstery and carpets. 

Pet Vacuum

Australia offers a wide range of vacuum cleaners specifically designed to tackle pet hair. Look for models with powerful suction and specialised pet hair attachments. Vacuums with a detachable handheld unit are particularly convenient, as they can be used daily on the lounge, bed, or anywhere else cat hair tends to accumulate. Remember, investing in a high-quality vacuum cleaner will yield better results in effectively removing cat hair from your home. 

Slip Cover 

If you're not interested in the daily chore of hair removal or have expensive furniture to protect, a slipcover could be a practical solution. Slipcovers now come in a range of contemporary fabrics and designs. These tailored covers are designed to safeguard your chairs and lounges from cat hair and can be easily removed and washed when needed. If you have trouble finding a slipcover to suit your decor, a gorgeous blanket can also serve as a temporary protective barrier. 

By incorporating these strategies into your cleaning routine, you can effectively manage and control cat shedding in your home. Remember, regular grooming of your cat can also help minimize shedding by removing loose hair before it ends up on your furniture and floors. With a little effort and the right tools, you can create a more hair-free environment and enjoy a cleaner, more comfortable living space for both you and your feline friend.
