Here’s a fantastic product that I need to share with pet owners. There are probably fourteen different pet hair remover gadgets out on the market. Most seem like gimmicks to me and I have been reluctant to buy any of them. I was introduced to this one a few months back and got to try it before I bought it. Truly, it is one of the greatest things I could ask for. The Pledge Fabric Sweeper works like a charm. It works on furniture, bedspreads, pillows, car interiors, rugs, and the list goes on. It sweeps from side to side and the hair and fur is swept up inside the chamber.
There is a negative to this, however. They advertise it as a multi-use disposable product. Once you buy it, you will see. They are right, you can use it multiple times. My concern is that it is such a waste and bad contribution to the environment to throw away such heavy plastic on a regular basis. But wait!! There’s hope. The sweepers are easily removable! Just pop one out and remove the pet hair and pop it back in. That way, you can reuse a great deal more. I have tried it this way and have been using it for months.
Let me know if you’ve tried one of if you do. Take a look at it on their website. These can be purchased at grocery, variety, and some hardware stores.
Hope you’re enjoying this mid February day! It’s gorgeous here in Atlanta.
Ok. So here’s an update. After reading the product info on the website, I was a little confused. It reported the box says resuable and the directions say to dispose of when full. So, I emailed the company to ask and quickly got a response.
“I’m glad you wrote, Olivia.
It’s great to hear you had a chance to try Pledge® Fabric Sweeper For Pet Hair – and it’s especially nice to know how pleased you are with the results.
However, I did want to add that since it sounds like you’re currently using the previous disposable model, I think you’ll be happy to learn in July 2011 we introduced an environmentally friendly sweeper designed with a removable lid. No more popping out rollers – simply sweep, empty, and reuse!
Thanks for the chance to help, and be sure to look for packages labeled “Empty & Reuse”.

That’s good news! Glad they are being more environmentally conscious.
