Roll of packing tape works wonders.


#3

I wear my dog-friend’s fur as a badge of honor!


#4

Really?

OwO


#5

Love Glove: hated the name, thought the concept was ridiculous. Cats love it.


#6

OXO. Is there anything they don’t do? :face_with_monocle:


#7

Speaking of “love glove”, I’d be a little frightened of their condoms…


#8

Nearly everything is better than a dog’s unprotected.
Except a cat’s unprotected.

Trust me. I’m a biologist.

If you don’t, ask Jimbo.


#9

If the fur is self-cleaning why do I need to brush it!?! I’m not falling for your scam frauenfelder!


#10

Doesn’t really work as a pet hair remover.
Dog is still as furry as before.


#11

These do remove lint but will also cause some fabrics to pill. Not as good a solution as tape rollers.


#12

True, but that economically sponsors some environmentally insensitive corporations, and it’s not cost effective.

Make a decent baster?

If you moisten your hands slightly and run them over a surface you’d like to clean, hair and lint will stick to your hands, and then you rub them together briskly and the material rolls right up in to easily disposable yarn. The trick is to have just the right amount of moisture on your hands; I’m afraid it does take practice.

Um… a roll of packing tape is much cheaper than a lint roller. Kindly show me the carbon footprint and toxicity analysis of paper (or plastic) tape production vs. production and assembly of OXO Good Grips.

It’s cheaper than a gold-plated moss-encrusted family credenza, too. That doesn’t make it cost-effective.

I am not your research assistant.

I use water and my hands. My friend Mr. Mike taught me how to do it.


#15

Hmmm… I seem to have got your goat. I much prefer being on more cordial terms.


#16

I cordially accept the return of my goat, then. :slight_smile: Didn’t mean to jump salty, sorry!
