Re-nest Recall: Pet Hair Magnet

Re-nest Recall: Pet Hair Magnet

It hurts us to have to write this — because we really thought we'd struck gold — but we've given up on the Pet Hair Magnet. We haven't been using it too much for the last year or so, because it seemed to have gotten less and less effective at cleaning our cats' hair up off of the couch and our blankets ...

No wonder! We looked more closely at it today, and the little rubber nubs on the squeegee-ish side of the tool were completely worn down. These are the things that grab the cat hair and ball it up for easy removal. They were gone.

We like tools with longer life spans. Next, we'll try Mrs. Meyer's advice: Don a pair of rubber gloves, lightly wet them, and run them over the fabric you want to remove the hair from. Apparently this works? Has anyone tried it? Does anyone have any other cat hair removal advice?
