How do you get dog fur off of car seats?

I have a dog that likes to ride with me, and I usually don’t care about the fur all over the place. But my partner’s mother is coming to stay with us and she’s allergic. How can I clean up my seats?

Pet fur can be a little tricky to get out of car seats, but it isn’t too difficult. There are plenty of methods you can try when the high-power vacuums at the local car wash don’t cut it.
Try using:
  • Rubber gloves
  • Lint rollers
  • Velcro (check if you have velcro hair rollers you don’t care about)
  • Wire brush
  • Duct tape or other tape
Wet methods for stubborn fur include:
  • Mixing fabric softener (2 teaspoons) and water in a spray bottle and spraying down your seats. Use a paper towel to get the fur loose, then vacuum them up
  • Wetting rubber gloves and rubbing the seats
Another way to take care of your car is by making sure you have roadside assistance. With Jerry in your pocket, you’ll never have to worry about being stranded again. You’ll get access to winching, 10 miles of towing, lockout services, and more.
