How To Remove Dog Hair From A Car

We all love our furry fidos, but let’s be honest—their fur can sometimes be a pain! When it comes to removing fur from upholstery and carpets, it’s often helpless. You use the strongest vacuums and spend hours picking at the fur, but there’s always a little bit leftover. Today, we’re going to tell you how to remove dog hair from a car the right way. Read on to learn how—some of these tips may surprise you. 

Removal Options

The Best Tool For Hair Removal: Fur-Zoff

When it comes to hair removal, the best option out there for your seats and carpet is the Fur-Zoff pumice stone. This stone is excellent at collecting your dog’s fur from seats and carpets. Dog hairs have a tendency to embed themselves like needles within the fibers of the upholstery. It doesn’t matter what kind of vacuum you have, nor how strong it is, because it won’t be able to suck out all of the hairs.  Pumice is a naturally porous stone that has thousands of tiny holes that catch the hairs. Use the stone in a sweeping motion across fabric seats and carpet to sweep all that hair up. Once the hair is all in one place, suck it up with a great in-car vacuum, like this. If you have leather seats, do not use pumice stone for hair. You risk scratching the finish off if you rub pumice on leather, vinyl, or plastic.   

Lint Rollers 

If you have leather seats, vinyl, or plastic upholstery, lint rollers are a great option. This simple tool is essentially double-sided tape on a roller. It’s non-abrasive and amazing at removing hair from seats, upholstery, and carpet without leaving a sticky residue behind.   

Preventative Measures

So, you’ve got some pumice stone, a vacuum, and a lint roller. What else can you do? Prevention. To keep the hair at bay, there are ways to prevent a buildup that requires massive cleanup. 


To keep shedding at bay, you should be bathing and brushing your dogs almost every day. This is especially true if your dog has an undercoat. Dogs with undercoats shed twice as much as others. The best way to deal with this is by using a tool like a Furminator. This shedding brush cuts away hairs that will fall out anyway, so they won’t get stuck in your car. 

Car Seat Covers

Another great preventative measure against dog hair buildup is car seat covers. There are thousands of car seat covers to choose from, so it’s up to you what to get. Be sure to get some relatively durable seat covers so their claws and fur don’t penetrate the material. Not only will seat covers protect your seats from fur, but they will protect against stains, scratches, and accidents.
