Chuy is a short hair Chihuahua but there is dog hair ALL over my home. I’m always looking for new dog hair cleaning hacks to make my life easier. I’ve come to the realization that I’m NEVER going to get all of the dog hair out of here. However, there are things you can to stop fur from covering every square inch of your house. Minimizing dog hair is a must have cleaning hack for dog moms. I’ve put together a list of dog hair cleaning hacks that you’ll want to pin and save.
Dog Hair Cleaning Hacks
1. Textured Rubber Gloves
This hack is great if you have upholstered couches. We all know how much dog hair accumulates there! Slip on a pair of textured rubber gloves and simply wipe them across the couch. This will loosen up the dog hair. Carry it over to the trash can and BOOM.
2. Get a Really Good Lint Roller
This one is probably obvious but it works! Invest in a really good lint roller. The hack here is to keep one in the house, one in your purse, and one in the car. This works on more than just your clothes. You can use a lint roller on furniture, pillows, the car, and carpet.
Bonus Tips: I keep a mini lint roller like this in my purse.

If you’re a dog mom and don’t have a Swiffer Sweeper, you need to get a Swiffer ASAP! These little babies are so good. These are a must have for cleaning up the dirt, dust, and dog hair from floors.
5. Furminate Your Dog on the Reg!
Regular brushing helps to remove the fur that’s already loose and going to shed all over your house. A regular brush won’t do a good enough job. I absolutely love and recommend the Furminator for brushing your dog because it removes a ton of loose fur.
6. Invest in a Handheld Cordless Vacuum
Who wants to bust out the big guns every single time you need to clean up some fur? Every dog mom and dad needs a handheld cordless vacuum. These are genius for cleaning the steps and small areas that are hard to reach with the regular vacuum. This is the one I have:
