I'm selling my jeep cherokee and the rear seats and cargo area have a lot of dog hair in the carpet. I've vacuumed and used a lint remover roller. It has made some progess, but I'd like to get more of it out?

Does anyone have any better / other methods?

Thanks.

Are these different than regular dog hair brushes? I've tried using the brushes I use on my dogs (a regular brush and a shedding brush). Didn't seem to do much.

Thanks.

I have seen them at my local Pet store, they SAY there made to remove pet hair from pile carpet, but don't know if there really any different. Never tried them. I have mostly hardwood floors in my house and my dog doesn't shed much anyway.

Edit: Did you try the HIGH suction vacuums like at a carwash while you brushed?? just an idea :shrug

What works good on my couch is 2 things
1 i bought a Bissell little green machine.
this is a power cleaner like you would use on you home carpet but in a small portable unit.

the cheeper way to go (if you can find one) is the lint brush. no the roller one, but the one that is red on the bottem (useualy red) like this one http://studioshowroom.com/b2b/p121.html but bigger. This is the type that one way removes lint and if you move it the other way it removed it from the brish. Works great, better than the roller.

try a new wire brush. that may get down into the pile better, then you can vacuum after.:shrug

there is no way to get all the dog hair out enless you pull every strand with tweezers it gets weaved into the carpet i asked my detail guys about this before thats why if you bring in a vehicle with dog fur we would decrease the value of your trade.

put on a rubber dishwashing glove and pet the carpet. the hair will roll up into clumps and discard. Trust me, it works:thumbup

I’ve noticed a lot of owners talking about getting dog hair out of seats/carpet, etc and I’m not shilling anything, no financial interest whatsoever but this is the best damn thing I’ve ever found to get up pet hair. Apologies for the weird picture but I was sitting at my desk and took it with my IPad and not sure how to crop..

Ditto. Or clear packing tape.

This one oddly works a lot better than you think it would.

Otherwise, a roll of packing tape. Not as gooey as duct tape.
I went through about half a roll of it, but had nice (mostly) dog hair free seats.

Do a search for the all dog loving bronco owners thread by BikerPepe`. Someone over there told me a recipe using fabric softener that will make the hair come out easier with the rubber glove method
