we use a wetstone, like for knife sharpening. It sounds strange but it was a trick a guy at the corvette shop I detailed at showed me. you use a flat semi round wet stone run it over the carpet and the hair sticks to the stone. use a nylon brush and vac to finish up. we have two huskys and it works like a charm every time.

I worked at a detail shop. this is the ONLY way to go. lint rollers, tape, pet store bull****. none of it works.

you need this. you sweep it all into one spot and vacum. then repeat till its all gone. you should see some of the cars ive had to do. there was more hair in the carpet than on the dog.

Default pet vacuum

I always use handheld vacuums for pet hair for this task.

I do automotive detailing on the side and what I do is use rubber gloves or a rubber brush. I use my hand to rub the carpet/upholstery and the hair will clump up and use the shop vac to suck up. I also use a rubber brush for large areas such as the Sonax Pet Hair Brush.

Next time you go away just make sure you shave your dogs before you go. No hair on the dog, no hair in the car.

next time wrap your dog in a trash bag up to its neck.. tape the bags around its legs so it can walk around.. and boom problem solved... has anyone suggested using packaging tape to get rid of the hair.. cant see that method not working

Yeah, I always put the blanket everywhere when I drive with my dog, so does my friend from DSRLeasing after he took long trip with Labrador that apparently pretty stressed and he had its hair everywhere basically. Had some trouble getting it cleaned :P

I use one of those little cordless Dyson Vacuums with the spinning brush to get dog hair out of the vehicle carpet. Takes a bit of time, but works great.

Shop vac + lint rollers.

Cheap hammock seat cover for the back keeps the hair off the seats, but if you have a husky the hair is inevitable!!!

I used to photograph cars for Tesla’s used roadster sales program. I wasn’t given much to clean the roadsters with as they were offered to customers as loaners while their sedans were in the shop.

I was instructed to clean the seats with a microfiber towel. It doesn’t grab the fur, but does a great job for pushing them around into grabbable bundles.

I still do this with my 2016 wrx.

Need something rough that will "uproot" the hair. Those rollers don't get it all.

I use a portable dyson, rubber gloves, a hard brush toothbrush. takes "forever" but if you have the alcantara interior in blue, the hair just weaves in and our and the toothbrush is needed to pull it out.
