One of the biggest giveaways that you have a dog is the pet hair attached to your clothes. If you have a dog, surely you have dog hair sticking to the bottom of your socks as we speak! It's just one of the small cons of owning a pet. It's completely normalized these days to have a few strands of dog fur on your clothes, but once it's out of control, it's time for a washing machine hair catcher.
If you're wondering what you can do to remove pet hair from clothing before washing clothes, it's best to start with the source of the problem. Usually, pet owners will find that their dogs need a pet grooming appointment once loose hair has marked its territory on their upholstery and fresh laundry.

The main reason why I love rubber bristles is that you can rinse them off in the sink. With a typical broom, bristles can be ruined by water. Cleaning long hair from nylon brooms is awful. Opt for a rubber broom like this one. It's made to pick up hair that your furry friend leaves behind.
