Oh furry friends, we really do love you but your fur can be oh-so-frustrating! And we know that we have nearly as many furry Comphy customers as we do human, so we thought we should share some tips for removing your fuzzy offering from our Comphy beds.
Many of us here at Comphy have furry family members so we put things to the test to help you keep your Comphy linens fur-free.
- PREVENTION. Though it doesn’t solve the problem completely, regularly brushing your pet will help prevent the major buildup of fur. Try to brush them daily. Not only will they love it but it will mean less fuzz they can leave behind.
- MAINTENANCE. As with most things, regular upkeep is better than letting things get to an unmanageable point. Try to remove pet hair from your bedding daily so that it doesn’t build up.
- SAVE YOUR WASHER & DRYER. Though it’s tempting to just throw your bedding into the wash, it’s important that you remove as much fur as possible beforehand. The buildup of pet fur can cause major plumbing or equipment problems over time.
- REMOVAL. We tested many of the common suggestions you’ll find with a quick Google search and concluded that often the simplest option is best.
- Rubber Glove Trick. Hands down, this was the best option we found for removing pet fur from your bed and it’s probably the least expensive too. Simply wear a latex cleaning glove (not even the fancy pet ones you’ll find online) and wipe in one direction on the fabric. Fur will quickly clump and can be removed easily. Read more about this trick here.
- Lint Brush. These brushes are marketed as a fur removal trick and we tested it to see if they work. They do. Just not as well as the simple rubber glove.
- Roller. Not awesome. Rollers are good for a quick solution on your work outfit at the office, but not for cleaning bedding. You’ll spend way more time and money with this tool.
And there you have it! We hope we’ve helped improve your relationship with your pet so they can continue to sleep at the foot of your Comphy bed! Head out to the store and grab a new set of latex cleaning gloves and you’ll be all set!
