How to Get Dog Hair Out of Your Car

“Fall in love with a dog, and in many ways you enter a new orbit, a universe that features not just new colors but new rituals, new rules, a new way of experiencing attachment.” – Caroline Knapp

That quote couldn’t be truer. When you bring home a dog, you bring home a bundle of happiness that is never going to leave your side. With a dog, you bring home a new life that will make your world more fun and brighter! However, problems arise when you need to clean up all the hair from your car after you take your fur baby for a ride.

However, here are a few ways which you can follow to clean your car.

Use a Rubber Brush

Using a rubber brush to clean your car’s carpet and upholstery is one of the easiest and most effective ways to get rid of dog hair. All you need to do is take a rubber brush and gently rub the carpet or the area that has the dog hair. Do not scrub. The rubber bristles of the brush will dislodge the dog hair from the area and your upholstery won’t be harmed.

Once you’re done, collect and keep all the dog hair in one place and then dispose of it.

Use Velcro Curlers

Velcro curlers are used by women to curl their hair. These curlers trap the hair and you need to roll them to curl it. This is the same technique you can use to trap and collect dog hair. The only difference is instead of rolling the curlers on your head, you need to roll them over your car’s upholstery. Simply run the curlers through the car’s upholstery to collect dog hair. The small size of these curlers is quite helpful in reaching tight spaces, making this device a great tool to clean dog hair from your car. However, run the curlers gently on the upholstery so that you do not tear your seats apart.

Use an Air Compressor

You’ve heard about cleaning the car’s upholstery with a vacuum cleaner but here is something new: you can use an air compressor to clean your car of dog hair! Air compressors use the power of blowing to rid your car of dog hair. It is fairly simple to use. All you need to do is:

  • Aim the air compressor on the areas that have dog hair.

  • Next, press the trigger of the air compressor and blow away all the hair. Ensure that the compressed air is strong enough to remove even the most stubborn hairs.

Remember to point the air compressor to a single point so that the dog hair is not blown all over your car. You can also clean the car’s upholstery with a rubber brush after using an air compressor to get rid of the leftover dog hair.

If you thought cleaning dog hair from your car is a tough job, simply you follow these methods. They are pretty simple to follow, do the job well and do not harm your car’s upholstery.
