Cat Fur vs Uniform

Postby Highland2012 » Tue Apr 09, 2019 3:08 pm

Hey all,

Anyone have any good tricks for getting the cat hair off your uniform? I spent a good 10 minutes and many lint roller sheets making my uniform look.. acceptable.

The wife to be has 2 dogs and 3 cats and wants another dog.... if you find a good solution pass it my way!
The 3M lint roller is the best I found so far. A rubber glove works in a pinch too, works great on the sofa.

A somewhat more costly option is to not wash your uniforms at home. I.e. laundromat or dryclean and keep them stored at work. I have found my cat particularly loves dark, freshly cleaned, uniforms for laying on... I get to wear plain clothes now but I contemplated the cost of separate cleaning vs. time lint rolling many times. Usually just lint rolled but I'm sure separate cleaning/storage is the most effective (aside from eliminating the pet and deep cleaning the house).
Humour and sarcasm are my default options. Except on Tuesdays.

I also found using unscented dryer sheets aided in the collection of animal fur.
