How to remove dog hair from car

I’m back! We had a fabulous time with friends in West Palm last week….the time in the sun was glorious! Even though we were there for a few days we came home rested and relaxed. Hope you had a great week too!

Great way to start a Monday huh….talking about removing dog hair from the car?!!?:) We had gorgeous weather here this weekend….and my car was in desperate need of a cleaning on the inside. I tend to take Stella with me a lot…and her hair is like glue to the carpet in the back of the car. I was on a mission to remove the hair and also protect the carpet so that I didn’t have to “wax” my car again;) I thought I would pass this little tip onto you in case you haul around a furry little friend in your car too:)

Think of it like “waxing”…..the hair pulls off with the stickiness of the tape. I used the strongest tape I could find….gorilla extra strength tape. I ripped off sheets and tape and pressed them firmly on the hair. I ripped up and repeated. Our golden retriever’s hair tends to be fairly stubborn…it took a few pieces to get the hair in the really bad areas. But the tape really worked great! I liked how I could hold onto one end and push it into the corners and the hair would come right up.

This was the before…gross right….

After I worked at it a bit more I was ready to protect my hard work. I used this carpet protector that has a bit of stickiness to the back of it and I cut pieces to fit. 20160220_125714

Hopefully I will never have to wax my car again:)

I put a blanket down to make it a bit more comfy….God forbid Stella isn’t comfy:)

So there is your tip of the day! Have a great Monday!
