The Be Forever Furless brush is more focused on pet hair removal than any other brush I have tried in my career as a cat behaviorist and registered veterinary technician. You can use the Be Forever Furless brush on upholstery, clothing, bedding and carpet which makes it very adaptable. This brush will even work for your car if you have to transport cats back and forth to the veterinarian.
Cat hair is a fact of life which quickly encompasses every piece of clothing and piece of furniture that you own including your bed and other pieces of furniture. While we love our cats and everything about them – cat hair can quickly overwhelm a household if it is not removed on a specific schedule.
I am not the type of person to exclude my cats from the couch or my bed but want to keep the house looking good for visitors and clients when I have them over. It is also important for animal shelters to keep up their appearance so that visitors do not feel overwhelmed with cat hair. Having what looks like an explosion of cat hair does not make your business or house look attractive.
I have been on the lookout for the top product for hair removal every since I went into the rescue business. What I wanted and what most people want is a product that will work on nearly any piece of clothing, bedding or furniture so it would be worth the investment and time. What I did not want was a different product for each piece of furniture or clothing that I own.
I have 15 cats of my own plus many rescue cats and kittens so I wanted something that is going to work on a long term scale which is why I fell head over heels when I found this brush. I also wanted to have a solid recommendation for people who had the same problem with long-haired cats.
The Be Forever Furless brush is available in a big version and a mini version for those who travel. These two brushes can be bought separate or together for a small discount. The difference between this product and every other product on the market that I have used is that this product utilizes bristles which I prefer.
I always suggest that people buy both of them since they are so effective. The mini version comes with a special carrying case which looks amazing and prevents it from picking up hair inside of your pocket. You can purchase this product on Amazon at a discount.
I personally find that they work about the same so I tend to carry the mini version in my pocket so I can lint roll my pants every so often before walking into an important meeting or appointment. I use the big version for when I am home and have to clean off big pieces of furniture.
Benefits and Comparisons
I tested the Be Forever Furless brush on a large variety of surfaces to gauge how effective it is in comparison to other leading brands like the Gleener Ultimate Fuzz Remover and the Chom Chom Roller. I did my best to test each product on scrubs, shirts, coats and other types of fabrics that people wear. I found that this brush removed all of the cat hair without a problem.
The brush worked on so many surfaces including old couch cushions and unique crafted furniture. I would rate the Be Forever Furless brush as the best overall, Gleener as the second best and Chom Chom Roller as the third best which will all be reviewed in the future. I looked at the price, effectiveness of each item for the cost, durability of each item and other factors.
The Gleener brush slightly outperforms the Be Forever Furless brush and significantly outperforms the Chom Chom Roller in the ability to remove hair from furniture. The Gleener brush does come packaged with a variety of attachments for different types of furniture which sets it apart from the competition.
The Chom Chom Roller outperforms both the Forever Furless and Gleener in the removal of hair from clothing but absolutely fails at the removal of hair from furniture in my experience with a variety of different clothing styles and cat hair types. That was a deal breaker for me. It can be easy to see why some have a preference.
- Gleener is best for furniture
- Chom Chom Roller is best for clothing
- Forever Furless is great at both
The last point to consider is the price. The Chom Chom Roller is nearly $25 which is expensive once you consider it does not remove hair from furniture well. Both the Gleener Ultimate Fuzz Remover and Forever Furless brush are $19.99 on Amazon right now. The Gleener brush can be expensive also for the fact it does not remove hair from clothing too well.
What you need to decide is if you want a brush specialized in one of the two important qualities that a brush would have or if you would want this brush which is proficient in both areas. Or if you are a person who wants the absolute best for both things. It was important to me that I had just one product that met both needs.
My favorite spot to use this brush is on the 4 cat trees that I have and over the scratching posts where the tufts on their toes are likely to leave the most hair deposits. It works great on sisal rope even. The ergonomic handle is very comfortable and the nylon bristles are insanely effective at hair removal in comparison to the type of fabric that other brushes choose to incorporate.
I wanted to especially test this brush on my black scrubs and hoodies that I always wear since I have 4 white cats that insist I pick them up and love on them prior to work. It was simply embarrassing how fast and how much hair was pulled from my clothing that was not even visible to me.
The effectiveness of the brush is upgraded to a higher level of performance if you dampen it prior to use on clothing or furniture. I found that this brush is very powerful when used for corners, seams and other places a vacuum cannot possibly reach even with attachments. Other brushes do not do well in corners in comparison to the Be Forever Furless brush which makes this brush a clear winner for which one to invest in.
I use this brush for my cat rescue and my personal belongings at the start of each day. Most days I also have to use it on my own clothing before I go into work. Getting rid of the accumulated hair is also simple because it literally rolls off the brush with your finger after it has been collected.
- Dampen the brush
- Shake off water
- Rub brisky over fabric
Wash with soap when you are done with water and run your fingers over the bristles to remove the hair. Please note that doing any of this stuff will not damage or harm the brush in any shape or form. I will say that this brush appears to be the brush that is the easiest to disinfect among the three I have talked about.
The biggest selling point for this brush is that you can reuse it over and over again without having to refill or replace anything. I would imagine that this brush would last for years and years. The below picture was only two minutes of work with the brush alone. It was a cover I did not know my cat was sleeping on! Absolutely no vacuuming or lint rollers used. I did not even wet it down which would have made it even faster. Video footage later!
Sticky lint rollers work well but sheet by sheet goes by and suddenly you are spending hundreds of dollars. I will admit that you will need to use at least one or two sheets after you get a majority of the hair off your clothing to fine tune your appearance. I have significantly increased the life span of my lint roller. Vacuums have come and went in my house because they are disappointing for hair removal.
- Works great for corners
- Use in any direction
- Gentle on fabric
- Quick and effective
- Will last years
- Easy to carry around
- Comfortable handle
- Inexpensive to clean
Seeing how much hair you can remove off a surface became a game to me after I had tested it for a week. The amount of hair that the brush removes is impressive. The hair is easily collected and comes off the brush with just a finger. No time is spent struggling to untangle any hair from the bristles.
This brush is going to be a fantastic investment for cat owners, animal shelter managers and animal control officers who spend most of their day working with a variety of different cats.
Time is my most important asset which is why I am ecstatic that I have found something that has finally worked for me long term. The handle seems to be made for the purpose of preventing fatigue from repetitive use.
I received this product for my cat rescue at no cost to me in exchange for writing this review. The free product did not persuade my opinion and my views on this product does not necessarily reflect the opinion of other writers on this website. All of the opinions listed are my own after extensively testing this product with over 20 cats from a range of different backgrounds and personalities.
