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 Fabric Sweeper For Pet Hair Product ..
selling a product called the Pledge Fabric Sweeper for pet hair.
JoanDogs, I am glad you found something that works great and is better for the environment and your wallet than the pledge product. Another great product for removing pet hair is Fur-Zoff. It's made from recycled materials and it lasts forever! $10 at This product works wonders. You can buy it on Amazon for cheap, and even cheaper if you subscribe (what we have done).
It collects all the hair in a single go. If you have ever used a sticky pad or a lint roller to collect hair from your sofa or upholstered cushions, you know that using sheet after sheet, you still get a high volume of hair.
Well, say bye bye to that. This thing will collect the hair in the little box above the rollers. The best part is, unlike the description, this is not a disposable thing. You can just remove one of the rollers and then empty the collected hair and perfectly reuse the brush over and over again.
This is really great if you have a shedding queen like we have! (We have a year old Cocker Spaniel.)
Therefore, we like this product that is very cheap, and is extremely effective where a vacuum would take hours of hard work and lint rollers would take 100s of sheets.
I use the Pledge pet hair remover for the sofa, upholstery, chairs, cushions, fabrics, clothes and people!Thanks Mandy for your review of this product.
It seems like many people really like it. I had assumed it was not very good for removing hair from clothing, but you say you use it for that purpose. That is good to know.
I would love to hear from others sharing their experiences with this, or any other pet hair remover, telling me how it has worked for them. You can , or read reviews of other products already submitted.
