Can anyone recommend a good product to remove pet hair from a fleece blanket?  Other than a very large amount of tape, I haven't had much success.  Tried the basic sticky pet rollers and one of those red fabric lint brush with no luck.  I had hoped tossing it in the washer and dryer would help but all I got was a blanket covered in clean pet hair.

CBG-theres a rubber brush[round bristles & a straight rubber edge] that works pretty well. I can't remember where I got it.Target or Pet Valu maybe.You can use it on the cats & dogs also.Great when they are shedding.

fleece is the worst! you can try laying it out on the bed and using either a damp rag or rubber dish washing glove. rub either one in circular motion and it will balll up the hair.  when washing. always wash alone or in a small load with large water selected. i use an all natural baby fabric softener in the rinse and it really seems to help. shake the blanket out before putting it in the dryer. half way through the dry cycle, check the link thingy.

What I have found that works best is a propane torch, you fire it up and wave it briskly over the blanket, burning off all the hair. Of course you need to open the windows, wear a mask, call the fire department (just in case) but the blanket will come out nice and hair free. Grin

Tape gets most of the hair off my blankets, but some of the guard hairs can work all the way into the fabric. I just use it as a fashion accessory.

I wear the latest in fur fashion (orange, gray, white, black, and some brown) all year round, but if I want to get the fur off of fleece blankets, I use a large rubber sponge (specially designed to remove pet hair) and wipe in short brisk motions, and then wash and dry the blanket.  The dryer takes off most of the leftover fur, but I still have to pick by hand.  The job is not perfect by any means, but there is a huge improvement.

The sponge is called the Pet Hair Lifter, probably made by Gonzo, and the key is to use short wiping motions and to remove the hair when it starts to build up so you keep the rubber surface exposed as much as possible.  I bought mine many years ago, but this one looks like the sponge and packaging mine was in.  Hope this helps.  I am not in any way affiliated with the product mentioned above and am just writing from experience.

A dampened rough-textured washcloth also works quite well.

The rubber brush worked really well.  Took a lot of work but the hair has been removed!  Thanks for the suggestion.
