Dogs take off their winter coats at this time of the year to make room for lighter summer coats. Taking off all pet fur from your bedding, clothes or pet bed is a very troublesome task for you and your washing machine.

The mixing of water and pet hair can cause clumps to stick to the sides of the fabric and washing machine drum, and block the drain pump. The damp clumps will prevent the normal loss of water and put pressure on the pipes of your home. This is why it is important to reduce the amount of pet hair on bedding and clothes before putting the clothes in the washing machine.

Start by brushing pets every day to minimize the spread. For clothes, the best way to remove hair is to use a lint roller or masking tape. However, most pet fur will eventually stay where your dog or cat sleeps, whether it's your bed or their bed. If your bed is your pet's first choice, pet hair may be embedded in the fibers of bed sheets, blankets and clothing.
