This Is The Best Hack Ever For Dealing With Pet Hair

When it comes to picking up pet hair, sometimes a standard lint roller just won't cut it! Use this genius hack to make an extra sticky lint roller out of stuff you have lying around!

We get to see a lot of my grand-puppy Milo, who lives in our basement apartment with my son Erik and daughter-in-law Kaitlyn. But we’ve also been seeing a lot of Kona this summer too!

Kona belongs to Aliyah, my son Kell’s girlfriend. And since Kell is living with us for the summer, Aliyah and Kona have been frequent visitors!

The Summer Of Dogs

But having two dogs running around the house all summer hasn’t really phased me. Because even though my own kids didn’t have a dog growing up, my siblings and I had one when we were kids!

Shane was a Vizsla whose energy knew no bounds, so watching Kona and Milo romp around the backyard has been rather tame by comparison. (It’s a far cry from the days of my youth, when “Shane’s coming!” was our cue to dive behind the couch to avoid getting trampled by him as he sprinted inside!)

Facing The Fur Problem

If there’s anything about having Milo and Kona over that has required some adjustment on my part, it’s all the dog fur. How can two short-haired dogs shed so much fur? (Especially when you consider that one of those dogs has alopecia!!)

I was contemplating this question the other day and wondering what to do about it, because I couldn’t find a lint roller anywhere. That’s when I came across a brilliant cleaning hack for making a super-sticky DIY lint roller on the fly!
