cleaning dog hair off carpets with a Grip-It brush

I was brushing Penny's long hairs off my pants today, using a Grip-It brush that we bought for removing pilling from woollen clothes, when I suddenly had a thought...Would it work on the carpet to remove Penny's long hairs, and would it be even better than the damp cloth I've been using?

The answer is...yes, and yes.

We've had this Grip-It for a long time, and I can't remember where we bought it, but in searching for the link above I discovered it's possible to buy them online and that replacement pads are available - though I can't figure out how to take the old one off and put on the new one. However, I feel sure we'd be able to do it if we had to.

Mom uses these to get our fur off the seats in her car and dad's truck! She swears by them! She never thought to use them on a rug! Thanks for the tip!

Love ya lots

Maggie and Mitch, when I went to the site of the brush, they said it could be used for getting stuff off carpets, so I guess I just reinvented the wheel.

Parlance, I didn't want to join YouTube to be your friend so I couldn't watch the video.

Mary, I accidentally clicked the wrong button when I was posting the video clip to YouTube. I've fixed it up now, so you should be able to look at it.

Thanks for alerting me.
