    My new favorite cleaning tool

    Just wanted to share that these gloves (brand doesnt matter) work amazingly well at sweeping the hay and poops into a pile. The little scrubbers act like bristles so you can just rub your hand acrossed the fleece...it grabs a bunch of hair too!

    I was using the gloves for general cleaning and gave it a try, will get a dedicated pair now.

    Intriguing! I might have to get a pair to try! I'm really sick of brushing hay and hair off of fleece using my little dustpan broom; it just isn't very efficient.

    My silicone dustpan brush works well for removing hay and hair but I'm always interested in new products. This looks intriguing...thank you for sharing.

    Thank you @specialk1979 for this great suggestion.

    I looked these up and got a pair just to give them a try. I usually use a handheld vacuum and a small broom to brush hay and hair from my fleece pads/cage liners before throwing them in the washing machine.

    I was VERY pleasantly surprised at just how well these work to brush hay off of my fleece while holding them over the trashcan!

    The broom causes a bit of a mess because it breaks up the hay and the vacuum would get clogged...but these allow me to rub my hand over it and it falls directly off into the trash without dusty bits flying about! And it allows me to brush it all off without having to go over it with the vacuum. Time saver!

    Love them! Thank you again for the suggestion!
