    Ok, the video is up but you should know a few thing real quick:
    1) I sound like a 4 year old boy...I'm not. I sound quite horrific on video and I don't know why.
    2) it's allergy season and that's why I'm sniffling.
    3) my camera stopped when I was finishing my last sentence, but it was: "I just sweep it up until I have all the hair off. It takes no more than 1-2 minutes."

    Hope my videoing wasn't TOO dreadful!

    I used long instead of short strokes, maybe that's why it didn't work. I'll try again next weekend. Thank you for the video!

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!

    Ohh I have a curry comb that has the little rubber fingers....I must try that & squeegee

    I saw someone throwing out a small broom and dustpan, and the dustpan had a rubber lip so I grabbed it. It works great!

    Jimmy Cricket that's alot of hair!!
    I suppose if you have more than 2 guinea pigs it would be more beneficial to remove the hair.

    Omg I love this idea. My dust pan also has rubber on the edge. I will have to try using it like a squeegee to. Thanks for the tip.
