Win it!

One of my biggest pet peeves is getting dog hair stuck all over my clothing. Really. I can't stand it. To combat the never-ending pet hair issues, I have lint rollers stashed everywhere.... my hall closet, in the basement next to the ironing board, in my bedroom, and in my car's glove compartment. And I can't forget the most important one, in my purse. What, is that weird?

Anyway, the lovely marketing people for 3M decided I should try out their new product. It's the Scotch Fur Fighter Hair Remover. It's a brush type tool for upholstered surfaces. Lemme tell you how it worked and then you can win one for yourself!

Check it out...
This Fur Fighter has disposable sheets to collect the pet fur. Now, the sheets are not the sticky tape-like things like lint rollers have. These sheets are made up of their special Microtrap grippers. And you know what, these little grippers sure do go to battle against the pet fur.

The test...
Since my 2 little dogs don't really shed very much, I sent the Fur Fighter over to my parents' house. They have 2 very sheddy dogs, so this thing could really be put to the test over there. And you know what, my mom really liked it.

She said it picked up tons of dog hair off of her sofa, even pieces that were partially embedded into the cushions. She also mentioned that it worked much better than lint rollers, even better than the super duper pet hair lint roller she had. And the little angled edge made it easier to get at the crevices.

The only downside that I can see is that, yes it's another one of those disposable products. Meaning that you have to replace the sheets on this tool and it's one more thing being added to landfills. BUT... if you are already using lint rollers, then you know that sometimes you have to use several sheets just to get a small job done.

With the Fur Fighter... you only need one sheet. And in fact, you don't even need to replace the sheet after one use, or even after a few uses. It definitely lasts longer than a lint roller.

The verdict...
It's a keeper. If it works for all that dang hair at my parents' house, it can work for anyone.

Win it!
I have an extra Scotch Fur Fighter Starter Kit (includes handle and 5 sheets) to give away to one of you. Just drop me a comment and I'll pick someone at random. Just remember to leave me your email address (if you don't have a blog) so I can get in contact with you if you win. Contest open till 5pm EST on Friday 5/16/08.

I don't wear white because it shows...well everything, but I don't wear black because it shows fur, lint and hair. I'd love to give it a try and expand my wardrobe.

This sounds like a very interesting product - I'm always up for something that will get the cat fur out of the couch.

Have a great day!
