How To Get Dog Hair Off a Microfiber Couch
Do you know the following feeling?
You sit on the couch with your family and the dogs decide to sit too? Only they start shedding all over your microfiber couch?
Now your microfiber couch is covered in dog hair.
Now your couch is covered in dog hair. Don’t get discouraged: there are a lot of ways you can get dog hair off your microfiber couch.
What’s a microfiber couch?
Microfiber couches are a type of upholstered furniture that uses a synthetic material called microfiber as its primary upholstery.
Microfiber is a material made from synthetic polymers and is often woven together with cotton to create soft, durable fabrics. It’s used in everything from clothing to furniture because of its softness and ability to repel water and stains.
Now that we know that, let’s get to it.
A few ways to get the hair off a microfiber couch:
A rubber brush (e.g., short-bristle brush) is a great tool to use for microfiber fabric. Microfiber fabric has a smaller pile than other fabrics. Dog hair will stick to it, but it doesn’t stick in the pile easily.
For a quick fix use a lint roller. Gently roll a lint roller over the hairy areas of your couch. It’s a quick and effective way to get pet hair out fast.
Lint rollers are handy. They can also be used for stairs, furniture, and blankets.
This is probably the most powerful method. If you don’t have patience for those microfibers, you might just want to vacuum. Press into the edges and creases of the couch with a good pet vacuum.
Toothbrushes are small and versatile. They are like mini brooms. If you’re willing to use a new toothbrush great, otherwise an old dry toothbrush works just fine.
With the toothbrush in hand, gently brush the areas of the couch (edges and creases).
How to prevent dog hair on your microfiber couch
You have a few options to keep dog hair off your couch for good.
First, you can spray a mix of water and fabric softener. If that doesn’t interest you, you can buy covers for your couch.
Not interested in covers?
You can put your pet behind a dog gate.
The last option is to groom your dog. If you trim your dog’s coat short, that may stop the problem until the hair grows back.
These are just a few ways on how to get dog hair off your couch.
