    Default Advice for removing cat hair off bedding?

    Our cats love to sleep in and on our bed. Even when I was the sheets and dry them in the dryer they are still covered in hair. Our washing machine does have a lint filter but it doesn't seem to catch much of the hair.

    I usually use a sticky roller to remove all the hair but it's a big job.

    Does anyone have any tips or know of anything that may help? I think I saw a product once that was like lint remover balls you put in your washing?

    I just use the lint roller too, so can't offer any suggestions sorry, but I Googled those lint remover balls and most people say they don't work.

    Hopefully someone has a great suggestion.

    This will
    Sound crazy but use a massive roll of wide packaging tape . Just keep pulling more off and pushing it on the hair , it picks it up brilliantly !

    No cats, but dogs hair is removed by washing and drying in dryer here, they come out completely hair free.

    In between washes though if they've shuck on the doona cover I'll use the dyson hand held and it removes it pretty easy.

    Not sure if this is coz dog hair is easier to deal with than cat hair or not.

    This^^ wrap it around your hand, like all four fingers with the sticky side out. Cheaper than a lint roller.

    I bought a lint roller cos I thought it'd be easier but its really not.

    Thanks for the advice, I've actually used the packing tape for removing hair off my work clothes at work but never thought to use it for the bed! DUH

    I would have thought our dryer would remove it but it doesn't. It removes it from our clothes but not the sheets for some reason. Maybe I try and shove too much in the dryer at once or something, lol.

    That's very possible, I was the doona cover, fitted & flat sheet n pillow cases together but dry the doona cover separate to the rest. we have a 3.5kg dryer

    Alrighty, I haven't got the hair problem as we have a safety gate blocking the cat from coming upstairs, but seeing as we are on the topic, and not to deter from the original question, but does anyone have a fab tip for removing cat urine odour from clothing/shoes etc?? I swear I have tried EVERYTHING!

    Try soaking in eucalyptus oil and water. A LOT of Eucalyptus.
