How do I get dog hair out of my car carpet?

My partner and I recently got a Border Collie. He’s a shedding machine. I have leather seats in my car, so it’s not hard to get rid of the dog hair there; it’s the carpets that are driving me crazy. How do I get dog hair out of my car carpet?

Answer
Congratulations on the new pup! Dogs can leave behind lots of dirt, dander, and hair that can make anyone’s car a real mess. Luckily, you can remove dog hair easily with the right supplies:
  • A vacuum cleaner or dustbuster for your car is a great investment. They can pick up anything your dog may leave behind without having to get so up-close and personal.
  • Lint rollers and duct tape work to pull embedded hairs from their hiding places. Simply roll them over the areas affected and watch the fur come right up.
  • Use water or a mix of fabric softener and water (for a good pull and clean smell) to loosen up the hairs, then attack with a paper towel or a rubber squeegee. Allow the area to dry and then vacuum.
If you plan to take your dog on frequent car trips, why not take this time to ensure you and your car have the proper protection with the Jerry app. With Jerry in your pocket, you’ll never have to worry about being stranded. Jerry’s roadside assistance includes jump starts, lockout service, key replacement, and towing for as little as $4.16 a month.
