Cleaning up cat hair

The cat hair doesn't really come off my sofa or clothes that well with a clothes brush thing or the tape roller. I saw this glove thing at Target. Has anyone tried it at all?

I've heard those work well, but never owned one myself. I have this thing that looks like a yellow sponge that works pretty good ...it feels like...almost like its made of some sort of rubber and the hair sticks to it then you can just pull it off when it gets full. I've tried the tape also....not as good as they make it look...if anyone could ever come up with something that really worked they would be rich...that's for sure...

I tried putting a link below that I found that looks like what I have...sorry if it doesn't work...not sure how to put links in here..

The sponge thing reminds me of a thing I had that was supposed to clean lamp shades. I don't think I ever tried it. I wonder what happened to that!

Anyway, thanks for the info.

The best thing I've found for fabrics is a damp paper towel. It works better than sticky tape or any other gadget. Actually, damp hands work well too.

I had a rubber curry brush that worked well, especially if I wet it a little. Essentially, anything rubber should work well. Someone here recommended just the kind of rubber glove you wear to do dishes.

I sure hope my vacuum gets all the fur off my sofas because last time I had some company without pets, they were cleaning fur off themselves so it wouldn't get in their car.

Best of luck to you!! I had a long haired all white cat whose fur was so fine it stuck to everything. I used to use the masking tape on a roll and it did moderately well but I don't think it would have worked well on a coach with deep coarse fabric. I learned to wear clothes that the hair didn't stick too very well like it never really stuck to blue jeans. It was very embarrassing when friends left covered with my cats hair. His coat was very thick and long and it accumulated everywhere. I loved that cat to death but I swore my next cat would be a short hair. That's what I got and at 4 months she doesn't seem to shed a bit but I bet she'll start to shed as she matures but the hair is much coarser. After 11 years with my snow ball maker it was worth every minute. I also have a large coarse long haired Aussie whose hair is much easier than my long haired cat to clean up after. Good luck with the damp paper towels and enjoy your friend!

A damp cloth or strong paper towel works well. That's what I do to get the hair out of my car seats.
