Fur Fighter - Keeping Your Blankets and Clothes Pet-Free

  • Written by News Company

Do you have fur babies? There are lots of benefits to sharing your life with animal companions. For one, dogs are usually really, really happy to see you at the end of the day. More so than your husband or wife sometimes! Cats make great hot water bottles during winter and are just plain pleasant to have around. Dogs can make sure you get enough exercise, and both sorts are good at keeping loneliness at bay. But the hair and the fur. Don’t get us started. It. Just. Gets. Everywhere. It can get a bit much really. So let’s take a look at how to keep your clothes and blankets pet-free and nice and clean.

Appropriate Storage

One way that your things can get covered in shedded fur is that you don’t have adequate storage solutions. Some decent plastic containers can be a great way to store your clothing and blankets while keeping them out of range of your pooch or moggie. Some folks like to pop all their winter clothing into storage containers while it’s warm, and vice versa. These can then go under your bed, or on top of the cupboard, or in the garage or the spare room. Vacuum seal bags are another option and are probably better for those living in smaller dwellings like apartments, units or townhomes.

Be the Boss

Did you know that if you let your pet sit anywhere, including on chairs, beds and couches, then they actually believe they are the dominant member of the household? While you need to be kind and loving to your pets, you also need to be the boss. So, a good idea is to invest in a dog or cat bed and place it on the floor and make it clear that that’s where they need to sleep or relax. That way the bed can get as covered in fur as it can, while your bed, couch, chairs and clothes and blankets stay nice and clean.

Invest in a Fur Roller

DId you know there’s handy tools that can help to de-fluff and fur your clothes and blankets? These often aren’t that expensive and can be a lifesaver when removing stubborn pet fur and hair from your belongings.

Grooming is Important

Pet grooming is an important way to remove excess fur from your pet, especially during the warmer seasons when they start to molt. You can go about this in a couple of ways. The first is the DIY option. This involves having the necessary combs, brushes and clippers to trim your dog or brush your cat. This can cost money to buy the tools and it will cost you time out of your routine to correctly groom your pet. Also, you need to do it the right way so you don’t make them uncomfortable or cause them pain.

The second option is do take them to a grooming salon and let a professional do it. This can be costly but can save you time and effort in the long run.

Fur Free Life Awaits

So, invest in some storage containers to keep your clothes and blankets away from your fur friends. Make sure that you’re the boss of the household so they don’t think they can sit or perch any old where. Invest in a de-fluff or fur tool for your clothes and blankets, and consider also buying some grooming tools. If you don’t have the time to groom your pet, take them to a professional to do it for you. Enjoy your fur free life from now on.
