How to Clean Pet Hair from a Car

Pet owners know the struggle all too well: our furry friends may be delightful companions, but they certainly know how to leave their mark—especially in your vehicle. Cleaning pet hair from a car can feel like a never-ending battle, but it doesn’t have to be.

Read on to learn a few useful methods for how to clean pet hair from a car so you can get your car feeling fresh, clean, and ready for your next pet adventure!


A good vacuum cleaner is your first line of defense against pet hair in your car. For the best results, use a vacuum with a powerful motor and a brush attachment.

Do a quick sweep once a month—or more for heavy shedders—to keep the pet hair at a minimum. Focus on the upholstery, carpets, and all the nooks and crannies where hair can accumulate. Move the seats back and forth to get to those hidden spots. Vacuuming is a great way to get rid of loose pet hair, but it can struggle against stubborn hairs embedded in the upholstery or carpet.


Rubber Gloves

Rubber gloves aren't just for washing dishes; they are surprisingly effective at gathering pet hair. Put on a pair of rubber gloves, dampen them slightly, and run your hands over the upholstery. The hair will cling to the gloves due to static electricity, making it easier to collect and dispose of. And, what doesn’t stick to the gloves will start to gather and pile up, making it easier to vacuum or pick up.


This method might sound odd, but a simple balloon can work wonders. Inflate a balloon and rub it over the fabric surfaces in your car. The static electricity generated will attract pet hair, which you can then easily gather and throw away.

Again, this is a great method for loose pet hair, but when it comes to embedded hair, you may need expert pet hair removal.

Lint Rollers or Velcro Hair Curlers

If you’re looking for a quick and easy way to clear off pet hair from your upholstery, lint rollers or velcro hair curlers can help. Roll these over your car’s surfaces and the velcro of the hair curlers and the sticky design of the lint rollers will attract your pet’s fur, making it easy to clear away small areas quickly.

These simple solutions are perfect for quick touch-ups, but that’s where their usefulness ends. Because of their size, they aren’t an effective solution for ridding your entire vehicle of pet hair, and they can’t do much of anything against embedded pet hair.


Wire Brush

A wire brush can be particularly effective in loosening embedded pet hair. Gently brush the surfaces to loosen and lift the pet hair. Be careful not to use too much pressure, as this could damage the fabric. It’s recommended you only use this method on tougher fabrics and carpets to prevent any damage. Once you have loosened the pet hair, you can go back through with the vacuum and remove any loose strands.


Professional Detail

While the other methods mentioned can help you manage pet hair on your own, the best solution is to leave it to the professionals. Professional auto detailers have specialized tools and techniques designed to remove pet hair thoroughly and efficiently. They can reach places and remove hair in ways that are difficult to achieve with home remedies alone.



Cleaning pet hair from a car can be a daunting task, but with the right tools and techniques, it’s definitely manageable. From vacuums to professional detailing services, there are multiple ways to keep your car free of pet hair. While DIY methods can be effective for regular maintenance, don't hesitate to seek professional help for a deep, thorough clean. When it comes to knowing how to clean pet hair from a car, nothing matches the professional expertise.

Why is ceramic coating the most elite paint protection product on the market?

Premier ceramic coating offers nano-ceramic compounds that provide the maximum level of slickness, protection, and durability.

A normal clear coat has hardness between 2H and 4H. However, ceramic coatings have a hardness above 9H. This shield is the hardest paint coating on the market today and prevents minor scratches to your clearcoat and acts as a sacrificial layer.

Think of ceramic coatings as an additional clear coat layer, only a lot harder. All of this allows for more peace of mind and a fuller enjoyment of your vehicle, even in harsh environments.
