Hair removal

I haven't seen much on this but what is everybody doing to get the dog hair out of there seat. I have a pitbull and she loves the backseat because she can sprawl out but she has gotten the backseat so coated with hair and a vacuum can't get it out.

if you have an air compressor, blow it out. If not, go to a gas station that has one and do it.

Vacuum it out as best you can the reverse duct tape around you hand to pick the rest of it out. We take our dalmaition all the time and they shed like a mule and we have a blanket on the seat and back carpet......JB.

I have two Jack Russell Terriers that shed like crazy and they've never been in my vehicles, but you'd never know it. The stuff still gets in there from falling off my clothes. It's damn hard to remove with a shop vac, but I have to agree the most effective is lint rollers or tape. I use masking tape wrapped around my fingers and pat where the hairs are.

Re: Hair removal

Put on a latex glove and brush your hand over it . The hair should come up in clumps and that way it will be easier to vacuum up. I used to work in an auto dealer detail shop a.d that's the method we used and it works really well.

Not that I know of, I always use the generic ones from the dollar stores.

You want the adhesive to be very light so you don't leave any residue.

I used to use one on my black convertible top on my 911 and worked like a champ.

A Pumice stone/rock. The kind that women use on their feet. I got the information from the
Autogeek detailing forum.
