We have a Sheltie and FOUR cats, so our battle against pet hair is both ongoing and nearly impossible!!
Do you have pets? We have a medium sized dog who stays in the house with us. She’s a member of our family and has full reign of the house, except for upstairs where we and the twins sleep. We don’t like for her to get up on the furniture but sometimes she does. I have an older style Electrolux vacuum that I thought did a pretty good job at picking up dog hair on the carpet and on our furniture.
When I was sent the Pledge Fabric Sweeper to review (thank you Family Review Network!) I wasn’t sure how well it would pick up because I noticed the rollers on the bottom and thought they might not work too well on our furniture. It’s small, light weight and plastic and fits very comfortably in your hands.
How it works:
It’s very easy! You simply slide the sweeper from side-to-side on your furniture. It’s recommended that you use short strokes (about 8-12 inches in each direction).
The rollers on the bottom of the fabric sweeper pick up the pet hair and as you slide it from side-to-side the pet hair gets trapped inside the container. If pet hair builds up on the rollers just repeat the side-to-side motion a few times on a clean area and the hair will end up in the container.
Let’s just say I got a little sweeper happy and I tried the fabric sweeper on a medium sized area rug. I was having so much fun using it on the furniture I wanted to see how well it did on other things.
It worked perfectly on our area rug. I’m a little embarrassed to show you this picture but for the sake of how well the fabric sweeper works, I will put my pride aside and show you. ( And for my sanity, please keep in mind that it was a very busy week with the twins so I didn’t have a chance to do any vacuuming. I really do keep up with the housework, I promise!)
Check out all the hair it picked up during my sweeper spree!
Overall I think this is a great product. It’s small, light-weight and easy to handle. It worked great on our furniture. From a search on Google it looked like they were priced at around $5 which is affordable. The Pledge Fabric Sweeper is disposable, there is no way to clean the canister and reuse once it’s full, but if you just use it for small projects like it’s created for it’s definitely worth the price and will last a while.
