How to remove animal hair from the sofa

Hair on the couch is a common sight for cat and dog owners. Over time, it accumulates, gets clogged in cracks, sticks to upholstery and pillows, flies in the air, and settles on all surfaces.

Pet stores sell special brushes designed to pick up pet hair from upholstery. Use them according to the instructions, as they are usually only effective in one direction.

Method 3
