As much as I love cats, especially long haired Persian cats. I hate having cat hair in my home on my things. Contradictory I know. But it is possible to live with cats, even Persian cats, without having your home over taken by cat hair.
Here are my top tips to remove cat hair:
Put away your clothes.
- If you have a pile of clothes on the floor on or the bed, you are just asking your cat to make that their bed. Keeping your clothes behind closed drawers, closets and cupboards keeps them hair free.
- Investing in a good vacuum is the single best thing you can do to remove cat hair. Having a vacuum that works well and is easy to use is very important.
- I have an older version of the Dyson Ball Multifloor Canister Vacuum Cleaner DC37 which I just love. I’ve used this Dyson for over 4 years and only have positive things to say. See my new Dyson cordless vacuum here!
- The Dyson Mattress Tool is wonderful at removing cat hair from fabrics, sofas, chairs and beds. This is my most used Dyson accessory.
Protect your Bed
- Dust Mite & Allergy Control Pillow Case are great at protecting pillows
- Mattress protector is a must, this one is great:Breathable Terry Cover Protects Against Dust Mites, Allergens, Bacteria, Mold and Fluids -Machine Washable Mattress Protector – Best 10-yr Guarantee
- Some people choose to not allow cats in their bedroom, which would cut down on hair on the bed and personal items big time. Personally I could not do this as I love sleeping with my cats. However when we are not home our bedroom door is closed. They are only allowed in the bedroom when it is time to sleep at night.
- Regular grooming is necessary for long haired cats and helps remove excess hair. Click here to see my favorite brushes
And of course lint rollers. These are most useful just before running out the door.
