How to Remove Pet Hair from Your Car

Whether your pet goes for the occasional ride, travels with you to work every day, or is your best fur friend who goes with you everywhere, pet hair in your vehicle is going to be a problem. Pet hair can certainly be tricky to remove from your car upholstery, but it is not impossible!

Read on to learn how to remove pet hair from your car, so your vehicle can be fresh, clean, and fur-free.


Method 1: Prevention.

Prevention is the best way to remove pet hair from your car. Brush your animal before a long car drive with them, and consider putting a blanket or other cloth over your backseat to collect the pet hair.

If blankets and brushing aren’t working, an interior protection may be a great alternative to help your vehicle look showroom ready.


Method 2: Vacuum.

Besides preventing pet hair from entering your vehicle in the first place, regular vacuuming is the next best way to remove it from your car. Do a quick sweep once a month—or more for heavy shedders—to keep the pet hair at a minimum.

For loose pet hair, vacuuming works great, but for stubborn hairs embedded in your upholstery a more concentrated clean or an interior detail may be needed to get your vehicle feeling clean and fresh.


Method 3: Rubber Glove.

Rubber gloves are a great tool to easily remove pair hair from your car. Put on your gloves and rub your hands in the same direction along your upholstery. Pet hair will begin to stick to your gloves and the hairs that don’t will begin to pile up. After you’ve swept your hands a few times and collected as much hair as you can, vacuum up your piles and reassess.

If there’s still hair leftover, slightly wet your gloves—or spray your upholstery—and repeat the process. This should collect any hairs that escaped your first sweep.


Method 4: Duct Tape.

Duct tape really does fix everything. A cheap and effective option to remove pet hair from your car is to wrap some duct tape around your hand (sticky side out) and then press the duct tape against the upholstery and lift up. This should help get the surface pet hair off.

Simply repeat this process throughout your vehicle and replace your tape as the adhesive is covered with hair.


Method 5: Inflated Balloon.

Remember as a kid rubbing a balloon against your hair to get it to stick straight up? The same idea works for pet hair! Blow up a balloon and swipe it against your upholstery to remove pet hair from your car. All the hair will be attracted to the static electricity from the balloon and your car will be pet hair free!

Balloons are great for loose hairs, but for stubborn hairs an expert pet hair removal may be needed.


Removing pet hair for your car can be a long and often tedious task. With a few of the methods laid out above, you should be able to remove pet hair from your car a little quicker and easier. If you’d rather someone else tackle the task, an interior detail or pet hair removal service can get your car feeling fresh, clean, and ready for your next pet adventure!

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.
