How To Clean Pet Hair From A Car

Tools that are used when removing bad dog hair from a car:

1: Pet stones

These are amazing but the downside is that they wear down far too quickly and are quite expensive. The pet stones reach far in the carpet fibers which then lifts the hair with ease.

2: Soft bristle brush:

Soft Bristle brushes are good for brushing the excess hair away but it doesn’t quite get down to the root of the fibers in the carpet. I would use this brush on a low to medium pet hair covered material.

3: Vacuum:

A good vacuum with good suction makes all the difference. Most of the time a vacuum will remove pet hair that is just sitting on the surface which still leaves hair deep in the fibers.


4: Fabric softener:

This will loosen up any ground in hair for easier removal.
