It's frustrating (to say the least) when you get ready for work in the morning, only to discover pet hair covering your suit. You obviously don't want to change, but at the same time you don't want to show to work wearing a suit that's covered in pet hair. Sound like a familiar scenario? We have some tips to help you out. According to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA), nearly half of all US households have at least one dog or cat. There's nothing like the feeling of coming home to see your furry four-legged companion waiting at the door. But owning a pet -- whether it's a dog or a cat -- means dealing with pet hair. It will inevitably find its way onto your couch, bed, floors, and even your clothes. This can make the otherwise normal task of getting ready for work just a little more difficult since you have to constantly watch where you place your clothes. First and foremost, try to avoid sitting down on furniture after you've put on your suit. Even if the couch look clean from afar, it could be harboring pet hair -- pet hair that can transfer to your suit if you sit down. For this reason, it's recommended that you avoid sitting when wearing a suit. When was the last time you vacuumed? Don't underestimate the cleaning power of vacuuming, especially if you own a dog or cat. A good rule of thumb is to vacuum your floors at least once per week if you own a dog or cat, as this will eliminate stray hair by capturing it from the floors. Don't focus strictly on your floors, though. You should also clean your furniture. So, what's the best way to clean pet hair off furniture? You can always use a vacuum cleaner "wand" attachment, but a lint roller works surprisingly well. Featuring a roll of sticky tape, lint rollers are highly effective at capturing loose hair. Just run it across the surface of your furniture and voila, it's hair-free! You can even use it directly on your suit to remove any pet hair that found its way here. Just tear off the old roller tape so it's new and run it across the surface of your suit. There's no easier or more effective way to remove pet hair from a suit.
