Goodbye Cat Hair

Pledge Fabric Sweeper for Pet HairI have four cats, and I love them. You could call me a crazy cat lady and not be too far away from the truth.

I love my kitties, but I hate their hair. With four mostly indoor cats, cat hair is ubiquitous in my home. It permeates everything.

Add to that the fact that I have a thick mane of long, crazy, curly hair, and you can imagine that there is hair in every nook and cranny of this house.

It sticks to my clothes, my furniture, and even my food. It flies around in the air like dust, and it follows me to work.

You’d think we never clean or do laundry, but we do. All the time. And we have a Dyson for pet hair.

As you can imagine, I jumped at the opportunity to review SC Johnson’s brand new Pledge Fabric Sweeper for Pet Hair.

When it arrived, I was jubilant. I tested it out by sweeping my couch, my microfiber pillows, and my bed (where one of the cats sleeps daily).

Some of my Family Review Network colleagues took pictures of their Fabric Sweepers to show their readers the hair and dirt that the little device can pick up. I didn’t do that, Dear Reader. I have an image to maintain, and all of the cheese curl dust, goldfish crumbs, cat hair, and other miscellaneous gunk would not help in that department.

Okay, Dear Reader, the real reason I didn’t take a picture is that I’m embarrassed that it found so much crap on the surfaces I sit on every day.

Suffice it to say that we’ll be buying Fabric Sweepers for the Feels like Home house.

I do have one complaint about the Fabric Sweeper, and that is that the little gadget is disposable. I’d rather if it were reusable. I wouldn’t mind emptying and cleaning it for re-use, though I’m sure tossing it in the trash is part of the appeal for some people.

This post was written for Family Review Network as part of a program by SC Johnson, who also supplied the product for review and giveaway.

  1. I would love to use this on our Pillows and cushions. There is nothing worse than laying your head on a pillow full of hair! Thanks for the giveaway. This is my first time at your site but I will be back!

  2. We have three dogs and a cat. While rules were in place for “no dogs on the couches”, they never listen. The cat feels she owns the back of the loveseat. I hate having dog or cat hair clinging to our clothes after we sit down and the vacuum just doesn’t pick it up off our couch like it should.

    My couch and loveseat have been dying for something like this.

    • Removing cat hair from clothes. I had bought a little package of disposable wipes at a petstore. The wipes, are designed to remove loose hair from the cat while petting and/or grooming. The wipes come in a little air sealed package, much like the handy wipes you may carry in your purse or diaper bag. The ones I bought are “Pet Head – Pretty Kitty” and are citrus scented.
      I had cat hair all over my clothes, anything I tried wouldn’t remove all of it, or even most of it. Cat hair works it’s way into the fabric. Brain flash! I washed the clothes as usual, added a cat wipe into the dryer with the wet clothes. When the clothes were dry, voila, they were completely free of cat hair. I haven’t tried this with dry clothes or furniture but I don’t see why it wouldn’t work. It sure did an excellent job on the clothes.

  5. I’d love to try something like this. I wasn’t aware of the product at all. I have two cats and naturally, they do shed! I’m sure it would work great on our sofa.

  7. Ooh- I haven’t seen this one before! I have 3 cats and a dog, so the first place I would use this would be my couch. Second place would definitely be my office chair- because like you, my cat hair follows me to work and my office chair looks like it’s covered in mohair!

  9. I did stumble across your blog and this product after reading your pizza recipe.
    I would use the pet hair remover on my couch and loveseat which my two cats love to sleep on!

  11. I’ve got 2 big dogs and 2 kitties – I’d use it everywhere!! I’d love to try it on my couches. I think the dogs sneak up on them while we’re out of the house.

  13. I would use the sweeper on my van’s interior. The sad part — I would need to use more than one because of the crumbs and assorted detritus.

    BTW — did you know that if you search for your blog as “feelslikehome” you get the blog of a real estate person in CA. I used live.com to search for your blog as “feels like home tara blog” and came up with a blog that you were featured on as the first entry, but your blog was only mentioned 4th or 5th. Just thought you should know.

  15. I would first use it on my sofa in my family room.

    Of the restricted use, it is recommended that you not use it on vinyl or leather.

  17. I would use it on the sofa and cushions, but also a quick swipe down that strip of carpet between the sofa and the baseboard heater. It’s out of site and not convenient to get to, except the little furry guy visits there.

  19. Use a pet cleaner vacuum to help get rid of the cat hair. A handheld pet vacuum designed for pet hair removal works great on hard to reach areas such as couches, stairs and cat furniture. Cats tend to leave their hair in every nook and cranny, so a handheld pet vac can be a useful tool to say the least.caderea parului
