Ways to Tackle Dog Hair in Your Home
Do you have a dog or like me, dogs?
Do they shed or have “hair” that needs to be clipped?
I have both!
We have a Miniature Poodle, Chloe, and a Pit Bull mix named Cayli.
Cayli sheds and Chloe has hair that we clip or on occasion have it clipped.
Even though Chloe does not shed like the typical dog, I definitely see her white hair sometimes show up and I have a little theory that Cayli sheds so much that Chloe “carries” Cayli’s fur on her and sheds it that way – like a walking, barking dust bunny of sorts!
Even though we keep our dogs groomed, during the changing seasons (and just daily) Cayli sheds her coat generously.
Though her fur is short, it is very dense, much like a Labrador’s fur and I definitely work to keep up with it!
My husband and I get Fall allergies and the dog fur can exacerbate those symptoms, so today I am going to share with you Ways to Tackle Dog Hair in Your Home that has worked for our home.
Scotch-Brite™ Lint Rollers are our secret weapon when it comes to battling stubborn dog hair.
We are talking about the kind of dog hair that weaves its way into the carpet and the vacuum can’t pick it up.
This is the kind of dog hair that infiltrates into your favorite sweater or coat and you would like to be able to walk out of the house without people saying, “You clearly have a dog, right?”
And yes, that has happened to me!
Yes, friends, full-home, dog hair infiltration is a real thing and a total pain point for me and I know it is for others.
So don’t go grabbing every strand of dog hair with tweezers –
I have found that these Scotch-Brite™ Lint Rollers quickly and effectively remove dog hair from a variety of surfaces in the home.
In addition to the Scotch-Brite™ Lint Rollers being available in the cleaning section of Walmart, you can find them in the closet & laundry and sewing & notions sections as well.
Here is some information I learned about Scotch-Brite™ Lint Rollers:
Scotch-Brite™ Lint Roller:
- They keep clothes lint, hair & fuzz-free.
- You can use them on pants, coats, sweaters, dresses, suits, formal wear and more.
Scotch-Brite™ 50% Stickier Lint Roller:
I love the Scotch-Brite™ 50% Stickier Lint Roller and it is definitely my favorite for really stubborn dog hair.
- Totally great for large debris pick-up such as pet hair & crumbs, yes, really.
- They have 50% more adhesive to grab more than just lint and hair.
- You can do more than just pick up lint or pet hair – it can pick up crumbs, sand, glitter to avoid having to take out the large vacuum cleaner which is very useful if you have a napping baby!
Scotch-Brite™ Printed Lint Roller:
- They bring creativity and fun to your household and are pretty 🙂
- They have designs on every sheet – I suggest these for in the car or on the go in your purse!

Step-By-Step Tutorial on Ways to Tackle Dog Hair in Your Home
#1 – Cleaning the Rug/Carpet
This is a little cleaning hack that I learned from my mom.
Growing up, we always had a pet dog and you bet there was fur to clean up.
We also had rugs in every room of the house.
Not every vacuum can get that fur that somehow gets “woven” into the rug.
I suggest vacuum as you would normally and then scan over your rug to see if there is any stubborn dog hair.
You can go over the rug with a Scotch-Brite™ Lint Roller to pick them up.
#2 – Take Along & In The Car
When I worked an office job, I ALWAYS took a Scotch-Brite™ Lint Roller with me. Why?
Because my dog’s hair would travel with me to work!
It would get in the car on my seat at work and certain fabrics seemed to be worse than others – not to mention some of my sweaters and coats (see below!).
Having a lint roller with you where ever you go is insurance that you won’t have a distracting “sign” on you saying, “Hello, I have a dog!”
I would suggest the Scotch-Brite™ Printed Lint Roller for on the go.
#3 – Cleaning Clothing and Outerwear
I have this one black, winter, pea coat that I love but alas, it always seems to attract dog fur!
In the picture below, on the left is the pea coat untouched and on the right, I have used my Scotch-Brite™ Lint Roller to remove the lint and it worked so well!
This can work for other types of outerwear or sweaters too!
I use the Scotch-Brite™ 50% Stickier Lint Roller for this type of job.
#4 – Furniture/Upholstery
Imagine having a sofa or piece of furniture that has dog hair all over it?
I don’t have to imagine because it’s definitely something that I deal with when I am cleaning the house.
My Scotch-Brite™ Lint Roller does a great job of cleaning up those furniture surfaces so that I don’t have to look at pet hair when I sit down to watch TV in the living room.
