    21 Things From Amazon For Anyone Who's Basically Always Covered In Pet Hair

    If you're covered in more fur than your pet on any given day, these things can help.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed collects a share of sales and/or other compensation from the links on this page. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A rubber bristle broom designed to dig up pet hair from stubborn surfaces like hardwood floor, carpet, and tile. The brush head is also sturdy and easily washable with a quick rinse with soap and water.

    Promising review: "One would think a leading brand’s blue rubber, nubby broom promising nirvana would obliterate the detritus from two tiny, short-haired, domestic kitties. One day blue rubber, nubby broom’s handle breaks. Enter Furemover. Much easier to stroke than other brooms of this type, slim, curved shape hugs baseboards and easily gets right where you want it. My bedroom rug is some synthetic fiber and flypaper for dirt. But one of my kittens trembles so intensely with the sound of the vacuum, I was eager for alternative cleaning methods. This broom is bananas! What’s really impressive is I didn’t even know there was hair matted into this rug. I thought it just got dirty really fast. And the hair just keeps coming — Twilight Zone stuff from the center of the earth, just keeps coming. Added bonus, my wood floors have never felt so smooth. I’m buying another broom immediately for the same reasons I hyperventilate with less than seven rolls of toilet paper in the house." —GirlinSF

    2. An extra-sticky lint roller made specifically to sweep away pet hair from your clothes with a few swipes. When you're done, simply tear off the sheet, throw it away, and forget you were ever a human fur ball.

    Promising review: "These lint rollers are great! We have five cats and are constantly battling cat hair everywhere. These are super sticky and do an amazing job!" —Michele Morgan

    Get it on Amazon for $16.95.

    3. A reusable OXO pet hair-removing brush to get your fur baby's coat out of the deepest crevices of your furniture. The attached base then cleans off and collects the pet hair so you don't have to claw it off yourself into the garbage can.

    Promising review: "We've had this FurLifter for over a year and a half, and it is still one of our favorite purchases! We use it daily, and it still works perfectly! It is quick and easy to pull up all of the abandoned dog hair, even on the kitchen linoleum. Our floors can look like we are growing a new dog, and literally a few strokes of the FurLifter and we are ready for company. Bless you, OXO, for developing such a wonderful, useful tool." —Karen

    Get it on Amazon for $19.99.

    4. A double-duty pet hair-remover brush to attract the fur your pup or kitten left behind on any and every surface with a few, short back-and-forth strokes. If you don't want to be bothered with sticky sheets or removing hair from other brushes, this guy stores all the collected hair in a back compartment for easy cleanup.

    Promising review: "I've had it in my possession for like two hours and I've cleaned everything. The couch, the blinds, the cat tree pad, the chair...I'm obsessed. I feel like this thing should win an award for being so awesome. I feel like it should be in raffle baskets and giveaways and silent auctions for every event that highlights 'things cat people need.'" —Meowser

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

    5. A handheld Bissell vacuum with an attachable rubber nozzle to dig up the pet hair in your car, on your stairs, on your furniture, or whatever other ungodly place it found a home in. It's also light and features a bagless dirt container, which is easily detached to throw away everything it picked up.

    Promising review: "Holy crap!! Are you skeptical when it comes to buying stuff online? ME TOO! That's why I figured all of these rave reviews were a crock of crap. I've seriously bought every kind of vacuum out there, including the Rumba, which is about as intelligent as a Q-tip. But I have four cats and a Golden Retriever, so I was getting desperate! I. Am. SOLD! BTW, I've NEVER taken the time to review a product before, just FYI." —Luka Chan

    Get it on Amazon for $36.99.

    6. A more heavy-duty, full-sized Bissell vacuum made specifically for pet hair to suck up all the stray fur from your favorite shedding creature without any fuss.

    Promising review: "I've had Huskies for decades. Needless to say, the shedding season (basically 365 days a year) is tough on vacuums. I've tried most machines (except a Dyson) and haven't found anything that works well on coarse fur. This one does. The pivot design is a huge help in my place. The brush picks up the fur, but doesn't hold onto all of it and becomes ineffective like many others. Dumping the canister is simple and clean. For the price, I don't know if I could find a better vacuum." —Jason M. Hatch

    Get it on Amazon for $99.99.

    7. A robotic vacuum to follow your pet around and snatch up the fur the moment it drops; perfect if you're both neurotic and lazy. This baby will roll around your hardwood floors, carpet, and tile for over 100 minutes of hair elimination without you even noticing it's there.

    Reviewer showing pet hair caught by the robot vacuum

    Promising review: "After running Eufy for nearly two months now, I can confidently say I absolutely LOVE it! It is amazing on my hardwood floors. It picks up sooo much fine dust brought in by my two German Shepards! They shed year round! And it’s super effective with pet hair! Wow! I use Eufy once a day for a little more than hour, emptying and cleaning the brushes out about three to four times during use. It seriously has been life changing, keeping my floors cleaner than sweeping! Great purchase and I would highly recommend!!" —Jacqueline M.

    Get it on Amazon for $219.99

    8. A reversible couch cover that is machine-washable and features a thick strap to keep it in place so your overzealous fur baby can roll around on your furniture without leaving a visible hair-trail behind.

    Promising review: "I have an arm-less sofa in my home studio, and that is where my two dogs — and sometimes the cat — love to sit/lie/sleep when I'm working. The amount these creatures shed would keep a felting factory forever in business, and keeping the sofa marginally civilized was becoming a full-time job. Enter the Sofa Shield. Fantastique!

    1) It fits perfectly! (I measured. If I would have guessed, it would have been wrong--so for any potential buyer, really, measure and get the right size. You'll be so much happier.) Since my sofa has no arms, the arm covers just hang to the side. It looks fine that way, and I like that they hide the view of any dust bunnies under the sofa.

    2) I am SO happy to be able to throw this into the washer and dryer, put it back onto the sofa, and voila! Clean, fur-free sofa again. Easy peasy.

    3) The dogs enjoy the sofa as much as ever.

    Whoever invented this wonderful product should be sainted or get the Nobel Peace Prize. More peace in my studio. Thank you!" —Liz Zelandais

    Get it on Amazon for $26.99. (available in 17 colors and sizes S–L)

    9. A fluffy fleece blanket made specifically for the pet who keeps stealing your human blanket, only to leave you with a washing machine filled with matted fur when you try to clean it up thereafter.

    The reviewer showing their dog wrapped in the pet blanket

    Promising review: "After finally getting sick of having all the human blankets with cat hair on them, I decided that I needed to get blankets that could be dedicated for my cat. At first, I thought I could just order new human ones but after doing a bit of research these blankets looked cute and soft. When the blankets arrived, they were as advertised; very soft and made well (good seams) but the final seal of approval came from my cat. When I put the blankets out and he settled in for a nap, he sniffed a bit and then proceeded to knead it with what looked like amazing joy. He is typically not a kneader but he just kneaded and kneaded and then the purring started. He looks and sounds so happy. The blanket spots are now the only nap/sleep spots. I have now finally reclaimed the human blankets and I have a wonderfully happy kitty! Seriously order immediately." —Amanda

    Get it on Amazon for $9.99 (available in five sizes and eight colors).

    10. A Levoit air purifier with a fabric filter to collect all the pet dander flying around, and a 12-hour timer to keep allergy-prone owners from sneezing all day or all night.

    Reviewer showing an older filter that has been used for several months next to a newer filter

    Promising review: "I don’t usually write reviews but I had to with this. This thing is amazing! I have a 13-lb rabbit and have bad allergies. I was getting itchy all over my body and taking allergy medicine every day. I have had this for one week and I have not taken any medicine. My itching has completely stopped and I can breathe again. As you can see from the pics (above) the outside collects the hair so I wipe it down occasionally. I keep it on the highest setting so the sound is noticeable, but it doesn’t bother me. I plan on getting more of these for my other rooms." —Natasha

    Get it on Amazon for $119.99.

    11. A set of environmentally-friendly wool dryer balls to pop in with wet clothes covered in your fur baby's second coat and remove pet hair from your linens while reducing your dry time by up to 25%.

    Promising review: "I'm so happy I finally bought these! I've had a major cat fur issue with my clothes as of late. Bought lots of lint rollers, ended up using them more frequently then I liked. With the wool balls not only can I put my favorite essential oil on them to keep my clothes smelling fresh, my dry time has been cut down and there is no more fur. Great buy and would buy again!" —AvidReader

    Get it on Amazon for $19.49.

    12. A fine-toothed, stainless-steel pet brush that'll comfortably comb through even the longest, and most tangled coats and reduce shedding by up to 95%.

    The reviewer showing the hair removed from their cat after brushing

    Promising review: "This comb is a god send. I have a long-haired cat who sheds like it's his job, and a short-haired cat who has wires for hair and it works perfectly on both. I've never gotten so much hair off the cats! And the long-haired one is picky about the kind of comb but he sat and let me comb him forever and I had enough hair to make a sweater. Then the short-hair got word that there was a sweet comb sesh going on and she came running because she loves a rough comb and it worked for her too! So don't waste time buying one that says only for long hair and one only for short hair, this comb works for both." —Armida C.

    Get it on Amazon for $14.97.

    13. A pair of gentle pet grooming gloves to give your cat or pup a massage while picking up stubborn, dead hair that you can easily peel off and throw away later.

    The reviewer showing the hair she removed with her cat after using the glove

    Promising review: "We have four lovely furry feline friends who live with us. After replacing all our carpet with flooring we noticed major hair balls floating everywhere like tumbleweeds through the house. Obviously we needed to up our grooming skills. The first time we used it on our cats they weren't sure about that 'big hand' coming after them but it only took one brush before they started lining up and begging to be groomed. Within a couple of days the 'tumbleweeds' had all but disappeared, and even the lint tray in our dryer was cleaner after each load. In addition to the cleanliness positives for this product our cats are calmer and happier. I call it Xanax for cats. Even our somewhat neurotic tabby has became calmer than she's ever been. This is a great grooming tool and I highly recommend these gloves for any pet." —Pangu

    Get it on Amazon for $13.99.

    14. An almighty tub hair collector so that bath time for your furry friend doesn't mean hours of cleaning your drain after.

    A reviewer showing the hair collected from their cat by the product

    Promising review: "I shower my dogs in the tub and this makes it really easy to clean out the dog hair. It doesn't just stop the dog hair from going down the drain but it also lets the water continue to drain while collecting loads of dog hair.

    When my dog is shedding I do have to pull it out to clean twice but that beats having to grab clumps of fur from the top of the drain every few seconds." —EV

    Get it on Amazon for $11.99+ (available in one and two packs and five colors).

    15. A pack of Burt's Bees dander reducing wipes for cats with the combined ingredients of aloe vera and oatmeal to moisturize your cat's coat and get rid of flakes and dead hair.

    The reviewer showing how the dander wipes worked for their cat

    Promising review: "These wipes are great. I have a senior cat who had heavy dander and shedding even with frequent brushing. These wipes have greatly reduced both the dander and the amount of loose fur! I used to get three to four brushes full of fur when I brushed my short haired cat. Even brushing every other day. She also had very heavy dandruff which is common in older cats. I've been using one wipe three times a week and her dandruff is easily 90% less. The amount of loose fur is also less. I brush her, then use one wipe all over her body, wiping with her fur direction. It's really made a difference. Her fur is shinier and softer. I also use them on my younger long hair cat and have noticed less shedding and less matting. This product has a loyal customer!" —Etain E.

    Get it on Amazon for $6.49.

    16. A grooming brush you can mount on wall corners with screws or adhesive so your cat or doggo can brush themselves, all while you sit on the couch and catch up on your latest Netflix series.

    Reviewer showing their cat using the mounted brush

    Promising review: "I literally had JUST placed the first brush on a leg of my coffee table when both my kitties came over and rubbed their heads on it! I placed the second one upstairs on a bookshelf leg. I used the double stick adhesive for both brushes. Both cats absolutely love them! I only used a pinch of cat nip, and ZERO training was required. It was no more than 10 seconds before they were both happily rubbing their heads on it. The rubber tips are firm but soft, a quality material, and are easily removed to clean and add cat nip. Both my kitties and I love this purchase. I rarely do reviews, but this was worth my time. A great purchase. I highly recommend for all cat lovers!" —Kayann

    Get it on Amazon for $11.99.

    17. A dual-head undercoat rake brush to safely remove mats, tangles, and nip shedding in the bud during those seasons when your furry friend is dropping it all off.

    A reviewer showing the pile of hair that came off of their dog after using the brush

    Promising review: "I have two Newfoundlands and the summer shed had just begun. They shed faster than my daily vacuuming can keep up with, but the summer shed made it infinitely worse. I wish this brush were wider with more teeth to the comb, but it is still a great product. In about an hour I had pulled off a pile of hair as big as my 150-lb puppy. He is happier and cooler, and I am happy that all that fur is not on my floors, clothes, furniture, and walls!" —Meg

    Get it on Amazon for $19.45.

    18. A smaller, more refined detangling brush that'll trap mats, knots, dead hair, and dander without any pulling or discomfort for your pet.

    Promising review: "I have two Himalayan seal point cats who can mat up quickly. I tried everything to keep them groomed, but other products either pulled hard on them or cut their beautiful fur short. This comb is the bomb. Hardly any pulling and gets the dead fur and matting out. I can do this by myself without hurting or wrestling with them. I highly recommend this to anyone. No downside!" —Denise R.

    Get it on Amazon for $14.99.

    19. A tangle-removing spray to further moisturize your pet's coat and help get rid of mats without all the painful brushing.,

    Promising review: "This tangle remover is amazing! We have tried a lot of different ones, and this is by far the best product out there. We have a Lagotto Romagnolo (Italian water dog) with really curly hair. This product has made bath time so much easier for us all. It also smells great!" —T.Alvarez

    Get it on Amazon for $9.99.

    20. A mild, all-natural, puppy-safe anti-shedding shampoo that uses vitamin E and Omega-3s to strengthen fur and reduce breakage.

    The shampoo bottle

    Promising review: "Bought this specifically for my 10-year-old Boxer. She has always shed a lot, even with us brushing her—we've had multiple groomers comment on how much she shed for a full-bred boxer. Have used this twice now since buying it, and we have already noticed a difference in her coat. She still sheds, but it's not anywhere what she was like. We're hoping this just improves more as we use it. The smell is great and the shampoo left her coat soft and supple. Highly recommended for those breeds that do shed a lot." —Jared B. Faurschou

    Get it on Amazon for $6.99+ (available in one or two packs)

    21. A bath time shampoo brush with rubber bristles for getting excess fur off your pet when they're in the tub, preventing shedding later and helping your fur baby actually enjoy being bathed.,

    Promising review: "Great product. I have an aging Great Dane and her short hairs are like splinters that stick to everything and even worse, shes currently shedding. I gave her a moisturizing bath and used this to massage the soap into her fur. I was getting loads of wet hair out and onto the Bodhi brush. Here's the important clean it, just pinch one end and slap it onto a hard surface. The hair comes out in chunks from the brush. Once she was dry I got another six brushes full of hair. With the Bohdi brush, she just thinks she's getting loved on. It's very gentle, even for old lady dogs who spend the day on a plush couch under the AC. Get it, the price is right and it works." —mommyof4#
