Dog hair removal from interior carpet

I am in the process of detailing a friends truck and found a way to remove long soft dog hair. Put on some rubber gloves and stroke with the "grain" of the carpet, then vacuum up the fur balls. Fast and easy.

This is the beginning, I had already used a shop vac to get as much of the hair as I could.

Done! He will be so surprised when I return his truck.

I Bought An Ugly Toyota

I found an ugly silver/gray Corolla at an auction in the 90's. Ran out well, just ugly. Apparently the girl that owned the car had been feeding multiple dogs out of the glovebox. OMG, the mess was incredible. Dog hair in places that you can't imagine. In those days they used some sort of carpet that was more like indoor/outdoor with fibrous hooks, akin to Velcro. I worked that interior for days(Shop-Vac), got all the hair out, but never fully got the odor out. Sold it cheap, and bought it back 6 months later and sold it again. Some people just want a vehicle that moves, no matter the odors.

BTW they make rubber products designed to remove pet hair, but if the gloves work... 👍
