Absolutely love your pets but hate their hair or fur all over your clothes? Anyone that has a furry friend that sheds knows the hassle of washing your clothes, pulling them out of the washer to see there is still pet hair all over them. Instead of taking hours lint rolling every piece of clothing, here are some quick tips to make your clothes come out of the wash pet hair-free.
Prior to throwing your laundry in the washing machine, run your clothes through the dryer on tumble for about 10 minutes, with no heat. Why no heat you might ask? Throwing the clothing in the dryer on tumble alone softens the fabrics and loosens the pet hair, which will be caught by the dryer's lint trap (almost making an easy clean up).
After the dryer cycle, shake out your load of laundry (outside is your best bet) to get as much pet hair off as possible.
Then when you are ready for the washing phase, add 1/2 cup white vinegar to the machine’s rinse cycle. Again, this also helps relax the fabrics and frees the most stubborn of the trapped hair.
If needed afterward, clean your washing machine by running an empty wash cycle. Also, make sure you do clean out your dryers lint trap to make it pet hair-free.
