    Removing Hair from Fleece

    So everyone has a bunch of hair on their fleece that they can't get off. Lint rollers, vacuums, brushing, all of that leaves behind so much. I have found a MARVELOUS little trick that gets 80-90% of the hair off in SECONDS!!! I went to my local dollar store and bought a squeegee for $1. It's meant for a shower, but you use it the same way in the fleece! I will make a video next week when I do the fleece cleaning and post it on here. This trick was originally pinned on Pinterest for removing hair in carpets or on furniture. Enjoy and let me know how you like it!

    This is what mine looks like, it has an arch to make it easier to use. The front is also rubber and that's what pulls up the hair.

    Mind blown is so true. It would be nice not to have to worry about hair in my washing machine.

    Re: A Well Kept Secret!

    Please, please, please Get that video demo up!!! I just did four loads of bedding in my washer and no matter how much I shook and used a hard brush there is always hair. I would love to see how it works!

    As long as no fleece comes off with it like it does with lint rollers, I'm game to try it!

    Re: Removing Hair from Fleece

    I bought one of these and tried it today. I must have done it wrong, though, because I couldn't get much hair off the fleece.

    Re: Removing Hair from Fleece

    If the results are not what you expect from the squeegee I would like to suggest getting the AS SEEN ON TV Sticky Buddy...it is a resuable sticky rubber roller...but I didn't even use that I just used the little rubber 'fingers' that are attached to it! Similar to the grooming brushes used on horses...It did a terrific job on cleaning my fleece bedding tonight especially my hay loft fleece! The rubber fingers have a good grib and get the imbedded stuff out. Bought it at Walmart...but I am STILL interesting in seening the demo YourSoJelly!
