Best way to get dog hair out of carpets?


Go to solution Solved by falcaineer,

Question

So I'm doing the interior of my wife's Acadia today, pulled out the floormats to clean those, and there's dog hair ALL over the carpets.  I've tried vacuuming, and that doesn't work.  Tried an interior brush, and that doesn't seem to work, the stuff just STICKS to the carpet like glue.

 

To make it worse, we've got a blonde dog and she's got black interior carpets.

 

Oh, and did I mention that after I vacuumed the floor mats and got ready to put them back into the car, they were covered from ash from the wildfires up by Fort Collins? :(

The Lilly Brush has been a lifesaver for me! I also use the Barrel Vacuum to pull up the piles.

Here are some results I got recently on a client's car that was simply covered in dog hair (also coated the leather with the Leather and Vinyl Coating)

A semi-stiff brush is the best way that I have found.  I hang the mats up so gravity can help with the sand and hair falling to the ground.  Using a crosshatch pattern and going over them multiple times will get the majority of the hair and sand out.

Has anyone tried this? I've been wanting to try it for a while. I haven't had any/many hairy cars to do so I haven't pulled the trigger. I believe it's supposed to work well with sand so maybe I'll pick it up around the time we got to Florida this year.

@aurikI have not tried the Lilly brush, but have something like it.  I let my wife use it in the house and had to pick up a new one for my detailing supplies!  Try searching for 'rubber pet hair brush' - I got the SM Arnold version, as they are a supplier to most detailing vendors.
