Do you use damp rubber gloves to get rid of cat hairs? I don’t. I use this:
This brush is more convenient and as effective. You just grab it and brush. No messing around finding the gloves and making them wet and then having to wash off the hairs. Where do the hairs go? Down the plug hole where they might clog it up?
To get the hairs off the brush you just brush it in the opposite direction. You can do it with your thumb or on the carpet and then just pick up the hairs that are in a bundle and put it in the bin. An all dry process. I have always found this brush very useful. It beats the hoover sometimes because it is silent so you can brush the bed while your cat is on it (I sometimes hoover my bed with an upright hoover!).
I thought about buying some of these wholesale from China, customising them with “PoC” on the back etc., and selling them on PoC. It is the only cat product I have consistently used and found truly effective and useful.
There are probably lots of alternative ideas for picking up cat hair. What does Elisa do? She has a lot of cats and a dog. She has a mega hair problem (if you see cat hair as a problem, which I don’t).
Note: the Buzy brush is not a conventional brush. It is made of velvet which lies in one direction. It does not stick up vertically like a scrubbing brush. The bristles are very fine and durable. The brush in the picture is 25 years old! It still works fine and I use it frequently.
