My guinea pig is a short haired. His hair whe it sheds would go threw the fleece ! I have tried so many ways to clean it but it just won't come out unless I sit there and pull them out one by one, which I definitaly don't want to do anymore ... My guinea pig shed quite a bit as he has a THICK coat of hair ... But anyways, HELP?!. . .:mad:

I used to sit and lint roll my fleece for hours to save time cleaning the washer after each load, but it was like you suggested, very tedious. Now I used the scrub brush attachment that comes with most vacuum cleaners. Any hard bristled brush would do the same job. It works wonders!

I gave up and just accepted it as part of the weave! Haha Considering how much lint comes off my fleece and towels I figured it was just extending the life of the fleece! lol

Wash it in a tied pillowcase take it out in dryer and throw in a tennis ball it will beat out the hay and hair and catch it in the lint trap.

Hey! thank! Does the tennis ball trick actually work? It's sounds pretty cool. :cheerful:

HAHA! I've been doing that for a couple of days now . . . . But I don't want my washer to get clogged up because last time it got clogged I pulled out guinea pig fur balls ALL DAY . :eek:
