October 03, 2014

girl and dogWhile dogs can be the perfect companion, their hair can be a nuisance. Is your pooch shedding onto your beloved carpet? No matter how hard you may try to prevent it, a hairy carpet (from time to time) is inevitable.  Although vacuuming can be a great way to help maintain the quality of your carpets on a daily basis, relying on a specific approach to clean deeply embedded hair correctly will save you money and time in the long run.

Clean Up Dog Hair with Baking Soda

The baking soda method is not only great for extracting dog hair out of your carpet; it also leaves it smelling great! All you’ll need is a vacuum and a fresh box of baking soda (which you probably already have in your pantry.) Apply the baking soda liberally to the hair infested areas of your couch and allow it to sit for a few minutes. Vacuum it thoroughly and you’re done!

Clean Up Dog Hair with Fabric Softener

Cleaning up excess dog hair from your carpet doesn’t have to cost you a thing. In fact, when you use the fabric softener approach, all it takes is some creativity and a little bit of time for this perfect do-it-yourself remedy to take affect! For this DIY, you’ll need a spray bottle, fabric softener, water and a vacuum. Start by mixing three parts water to one part fabric softener and pour into a spray bottle. Without spraying too much onto your carpet, spray solution by lightly misting the affected area of your carpet. Let it stand for a few minutes and vacuum it up!

Use a Sponge Mop or Squeegee  

For stubborn hair that has been in your carpet for a while, it can easily become embedded deep in your carpets fibers. Try using a rubber squeegee and brush it along those troubled areas that contain your dog’s hair and fur.
