1. Use a Pet Hair Removal Tool

Firstly, investing in a pet hair removal tool… Specifically designed for cars can make the job much easier! So, these tools are usually made of silicone bristles. Thus, hopefully making it easier to get dog hair out of any car carpet. But how!? Well, the flexible silicone bristles will attract and trap hair. Thus, they are quite effective by creating static electricity that attracts and lifts hair from the carpet.

  • So, start by ensuring the tool is clean. And free of any debris.
  • Then, begin by gently running the silicone brush over the carpet in one direction.
    • Whilst, brushing with short strokes to lift the dog hair from the carpet.

So, continue this process… Working section by section… Until all areas of the car carpet are covered. Also, working in a pattern will help you to build piles of hair. Thus, making it easier for you to finally remove all hairs. As opposed to just spreading your dog’s hair everywhere on the carpet.

As, for really stubborn. Or embedded hair, you can apply a bit more pressure while brushing to loosen it. And once you have covered the entire carpet… Simply, gather the piles. Then use your vacuum for easy disposal. As explained in the next method. Got it!?

2. Vacuum Thoroughly

This step might just save you a lot of time, unlike your dog… C’mon! That made my colleague laugh!

So, anyway… Before using any specialized tools… It’s very helpful to vacuum the car carpet thoroughly no matter which method you choose. So, go and get your vacuum cleaner out. Because this will help a lot by removing some of the hair that is already loose. And, also any dirt and debris.

So, before you begin vacuuming, remove obstructions out of the way. Thus, allowing your vacuum cleaner to effectively get rid of the dog hair on your car carpet.

So, start by selecting the appropriate vacuum attachment for removing pet hair. A vacuum attachment with strong bristles will help loosen. And lift stubborn dog hair from the carpet fibers.

However, without the attachment. Or a stiff brush, the vacuum will most likely not be the most effective method because it will not be able to remove the hair that are deeply embedded into the carpet.

Thus, it will most likely only remove the hair that is already loose. And therefore, leave behind the hair that is embedded into the carpet. Also, it will only be able to reach some areas of the carpet. And thus, leave off areas with remaining dog hair.

You don’t want to let too much hair attach to the adhesive sheet. Because the more dog hair you allow on your lint roller… The less dog hair you will be able to gather afterwards.

So, work in smaller sections. And work on one section at a time. Whilst frequently checking that adhesive sheet. This will help ensure that you don’t miss any spots and make the process more manageable. And efficient. Otherwise, you might look back and think no progress is being made.
