    Have you tried vinegar or tea tree? I'm lucky enough my BIL is a car detailer and gave me a 'bio-aid' cleaner that removes biological substances from material. If you can speak to repco or anywhere that sells car detailing products they might sell something similar to the public?

    Default Advice for removing cat hair off bedding?

    Ok I've tried vinegar. Bicarb. Tea tree, eucalyptus, dishwash detergent, washing detergent...

    Might have to enquire about the car detailing stuff thanks!

    Ba*tard boy cat. He's usually very good but we have had some hiccups

    OP I don't want to derail your thread.. Have you tried vacuuming the sheets? That was my first thought as its what I do to the cat bed before I wash it. I would remove the vacuum head, and thoroughly clean the end of the pipe then use that?

    We had a wee problem with our boy cat when he was a kitten. It's such a bad smell isn't it!! I just chucked any 'contaminated' items out. We lost quite a few items...

    Not sure if this is coz dog hair is easier to deal with than cat hair or not.
    Our washer and dryer had no prob getting dog hair out, but since we've also had cats it can't get cat hair completely out. It seems to be stickier!!

    Op, jump on eBay and buy a product called a furminator. It is a metal blade brush kind of thing that removes any loose/dead hair off your cat or dog. I use ours maybe once a week and the reduced amount of hair is amazing.

    You can get them at pet shops but they are about $70 eBay about $30. My cat loves his

    I used to have a suede lounge and even though I didn't allow the Cats on it, somehow their hair used to gravitate towards it, so after using those sticky rollers and large packing tape to remove it, I ended up buying a cheap pair of thongs and using that! I would use the rubber thong in a downward motion and it would remove the hair quite effectively. It wouldn't work as well on a doona I would imagine, but the Dyson handheld 'Animal' (that's it's name) vacuum would work a treat.

    As for the washing machine, a relative of mine buys a 'Horsehair' washbag as opposed to a normal washbag and puts all her clothes in that in the machine. Apparently it picks up finer hairs in your washing machine as it's designed to pick up horse hair and is a bigger bag.
