    I second the clothes dryer, it seems to get off a lot if the cat hair from my sheets and clothes.

    I use a lot of the ikea sticky lint rollers on the couch.

    You can also use those lint 'brushes' that are kinda made from like a red felt material like the pic below, I had a mitt made of it that was excellent at removing hair off the suede couch (that wasn't a very smart purchase with 2 indoor cats!). It's really effective. ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1385943292.981992.jpg

    I read a review that the schticky is a bugger to clean... Is that true?

    I am going to order a furminator this week. Depending on how that goes, i may get her shaven as the weather is only gonna get hotter and she likes to sleep in my drawers too or DS when he forgets to close them which is often. Hopefully that will help.

    Honestly not has an issue with it so far, just have to make sure your water is warm and give it a good rub

    Cheaper to buy on eBay than in a pet store. Think my pet store one was $50 then got one on eBay for $20!
