You can usually find the Pledge Fabric Sweeper for Pet Hair at stores like Walmart and Target between $5 to $10.
I love the new pledge fabric sweeper for pet hair, but one little thing about it was bugging me. On the package it comes in, it says you should throw it away and buy a new one when the container fills up with hair. Looking at it, I knew there had to be a way to empty it, but of course Pledge wasn't going to put instructions for emptying it on the box. I almost broke it the first time I tried to figure out how it opened, but then I realized the rollers pop out. So, do not try to pry the back off, it will break :) If you have pets this thing is awesome, just ignore the fact that Pledge could VERY EASILY have advertised it as a reusable product and just put instructions o the package.
NAD found that broadcast advertising properly limited the comparison of the Fabric Sweeper and lint rollers respective capabilities to the removal of pet hair from upholstery and determined that a disclosure, stating the Fabric Sweeper was not intended for use on clothing, was unnecessary. Further, NAD did not find the demonstration depicted in broadcast advertising to be misleading but, rather, representative of the product’s demonstrated performance capability and storage capacity.

Pledge Pet Hair Remover Fabric Sweeper Reviews And How To Reuse It -
Dealing with shedding fur is one of the minor annoyances that goes with most pets. Pledge Fabric Sweeper for Pet Hair is a clever little product. You roll the sweeper left and right for 8 to 12 inches on fabric. It uses one textured roller to pick up the hair and a second to brush off the first and deposit the hair into a clear chamber that also serves as the handle. It is gentle on the fabric, unlike some vacuum furniture attachments. It is disposable, meaning you can't empty the small chamber. The hand sweeper did prove effective on open surfaces such as sofas, upholstered chairs and throw pillows in three test homes with dogs, cats and rabbits with short- to medium-length hair. But it is useless in the corners at the back of sofas where the seat cushion meets the back and side panels. The product fills a small niche -- quick cleanups when you don't want to take out the vacuum and for unattached fabrics, such as bed spreads, that will be drawn up by a vacuum. The pitch: This new product picks up as much pet hair as 145 traditional sticky roller sheets. This handheld solution quickly and effectively solves the age-old problem that man's best friend brings to the home -- pesky pet hair showing up on upholstered furniture. You simply slide the Fabric Sweeper side to side in short strokes over upholstered furniture, and the rollers grab, lift and trap pet hair inside of the device. I own furry pets. I also own multiple vacuum sweepers, lint rollers, lint brushes and lint pickup stickers. The Pledge Fabric Sweeper for Pet Hair might -- whew! -- replace some of those. It works like a lint brush, but you don't have to stop every couple of minutes to clean it. It's also nice to not have to continually pause to rip off and toss a sticky roller sheet, as you do with lint rollers. But like roller sheets, the Pledge sweeper eventually ends up in the landfill. It can't be emptied, so when it fills up -- which will take a while -- you have to buy another. Nothing tackles pet hair better than my hand-held vacuum cleaner, but that is noisy and big and needs a power source. I've been using the Pledge sweeper to quickly give my clothes and car seat a once-over every morning. It's handy, quick and easy to use -- and I'm most appreciative. Pledge Fabric Sweeper for Pet Hair is great for removing pet hair from throw pillows, sofa cushions, chairs, car seats, bed spreads, and bed pillows.
