Hi! I was wondering if anyone had any tips on how to get fur off of fleece. My pigs shed like crazy and I always have a big ball of fur in the dryer and washing machine after I wash the fleece.

I have a rubber brush that I use to gather hair into the dust pan. You can find one at Bath and Body works with the pet items, and there are other home stores that have them, I think target and walmart may have them. I would google "rubber pet hair remover brush".

Yes, I've had a lot of luck with one of those brushes with the rubber bristles, like princessangel mentioned. I usually brush all the hair off using the brush and then go over it really well with a sticky lint brush to make sure I got all the smaller fur as well.

The rubber bristle brush works for hay remnants on the fleece as well.

Thanks for the rubber brush suggestion. I've been using the lint roller but it hasn't been getting as much off as I hoped before putting it in the washer.
Off to find one of these brushes tomorrow!

I found mine in the pet section of the local Walmart.
