clean pet hair off the carpet with a pet comb

If I write once again about cleaning Penny's hair off the carpet in the loungeroom, you might get the idea I'm obsessed with house work. Let me tell you, that is so-o not true. But when I saw a great new product at the recent Pet Expo in Melbourne, I had to buy it.

It's called a Pet Comb, and I got it from The Fabric Care Company. The advertising leaflet says it is Australian made, but I don't know whether it is an Australian invention.



It works really well, and it's heaps easier than cleaning the carpet with a damp cloth, or with a clothes brush, as I had been doing.

Interestingly, the clothes brush is sold by the same company.

Since we've gotten the pooches, I've been a bit obsessed with cleaning lately. They're shorthaired and we have a problem with their little hairs getting caught in the microfiber. We found an amazing "dry sponge" we use, and had to tell the other dog bloggers about here: http://pittiesincity.blogspot.com/2009/03/pooches-spring-shedding-clean-up.html

This is the most exciting video I have EVER seen. BOL (couldn't help myself) Seriously now, thank you for sharing products that work for you. We should all do it more often. As for Penny's hair...what is she, the Wooly Mammoth?
Twink!

What a great idea!! I had not thought of that...now if they could put it on a longer stick and make the rake area larger!!!

Twink, I think Penny's hair has an affinity for the carpet. When she was little we used to call her The Flying Carpet, so maybe her hair thinks it has to fly off her and land on our carpet.

Schwang, I had a look at the site you mentioned, but I didn't get a good idea of how the sponge works.

It looks a bit like those microfibre sponges you can buy in hardware stores here, but they are usually used wet. I presume this one is not dampened?

Maggie and Mitch, I guess it's wouldn't be very useful if you have wall-to-wall carpeting, but we've only got rugs on polished floors, so there's not too much to clean.

Tina and Teddy, it sounds as if you need a garden rake, lol.
