Simple Green: Pet Hair Edition

We got such great info about kitty litter disposal practices yesterday that we couldn't resist another pet-related green tip. If you're anything like us you're guilty of using 300 squares of the lint roller to get all the pet hair up just to see the couch cushions again. Well, it doesn't take a genius (we're just lazy that's all) to realize that there's a better way:

Obviously you could dust bust or vacuum it off but that takes power (and having a dust buster or vacuum with the right head). We're more excited for the Pet Hair Magnet as featured on Re-nest, because it appears to actually remove the fur without throwing a pile of sticky furry sheets in the trash or plugging anything in. There are other products that are similar (like a mitt) but we can't vouch for their abilities.

There's also removing the fur from the animal before it gets on the furniture, but that isn't our best bet (we're lazy). sometimes we just put towels down and wash them (but then we're using power and water).

What's your method for removing pet hair without (wait for it) tearing your hair out (oh and be green)?
