Q: What type of things does the Pledge™ Fabric Sweeper for Pet Hair pick up?
With sticky roller sheets, you can go through a lot of sheets. One Pledge Fabric Sweeper picks up as much pet hair as 145 sticky roller sheets before needing emptied!
This product is basically two rollers which you roll over various fabric surfaces which seem to accumulate cat hair, like upholstery, carpet, couches, and other fabric. The hair is picked up and placed in a holding bin at the top of the product. (Sorry if my explanation leaves something to be desired -- it really is easier to understand once you see the video which shows the product in action.)
This first video is from Consumer Reports, and it compares this product to the , which is an adhesive based product, and the Scotch Fur Fighter, which is a product with sheets with basically rubber grippers which grab the hair.
Basically, Consumer Reports thought the product worked very well, and was easier to use than either of the Scotch products.
Next, here is a video showing a great little tip to let you use your Pledge Fabric Sweeper for pet hair longer. Basically, when the little pet hair holder fills up Pledge instructs you to throw it away and get a new one. That could get expensive really quickly.
This video shows how to remove the rollers to get rid of the accumulated pet hair so you can reuse the Pledge pet hair remover over and over without having to buy a replacement!
This video shows you how to reuse the fabric sweeper over and over after it fills with pet hair, instead of throwing it away and having to buy a new one.
Finally, here is a video that shows both the limitations and positives of this product. Basically, she liked it for easy quick clean up of pet hair, but for big amounts she felt her vacuum still worked better.
From observing how it is used, I assume that this works best for cleaning solid surfaces, like a couch or carpet, but would not be a great choice for removing pet hair from draperies or your own clothing, at least not without having to lay that fabric over a more solid surface first. Is my assumption true?
I would like to hear from even more people, sharing their opinions about this product, and how it has worked for them. You can , for this or any other brand, telling me what you liked (or didn't) about it, and why.

pledge pet hair sweeper : Target
After some thought I came up with an idea how to reuse it over and over again, or at least until the brushes give out. There are some photos attached to show yo how this is done. All you need is the full Pledge hand held pet hair pickup and a Q-tip. Turn the hand held unit over to expose the gray brushes, slide one end of the Q-tip between the gray roller brushes and twist to wind up the hair slide the Q-tip all the way to the right and pull out. All the hair will come out on the Q-tip! 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.
