Home Pro Tip: You can remove pet hair with nothing more than a pair of rubber gloves and some water. Simply put a glove on, spritz it with water and begin running your gloved hand over your hairiest surfaces. You will be amazed how much hair sticks to the glove. To remove the hair, just run the glove under the sink or bucket of water.
