How many of you are dumb enough to..?

Thread Starter 
lay out a perfectly laundered black shirt on your bed while you get ready for work only to come out of the shower to see it is covered in grey and white hairs?

I am...

Are the boys just trying to get me to stay home?

I don't care. I am wearing it anyway.
(after I try desperately to wipe it down with a wet towel....or something?)

How do you quickly get cat hairs off clothes?
I heard surgical gloves but WHO has those lying around ?

If any of you see me at work today, please don't comment on my hair-shirt

use sellotape to take off the hairs, wider the better.

I have this brush I get at the dollar store that does the trick. Also the vaccume with the little bruxh attachment will work.

Yeah, you can either use tape, or actually just regular "rubber gloves" like you would use for cleaning do a good job, doesn't have to be latex surgical gloves. I've used the glove trick to get Pekingese hair off the hall runner where she likes to lay, nothing else would budge it!

I second the tape suggestion.
I remember when I first adopted Dixie she was laying all over me right before I went to a job interview. The lady was really cool about it. She says "you must have a white cat" I was thinking "how in the world does she know?" I looked down and had white cat hair *all* over my black suit!
I got the job though!

One of those sticky lint remover rollers. If you don't have one of those, like everyone else says, tape works! Life with kitties...lol

Use a dryer fabric softener sheet.

I have a couple different sizes of the sticky lint rollers, and they work like a charm, even if they aint that cheap!

If I'm wearing something white or light colored I get black cat hair all over it. If it's black (which I wear a lot of) or another dark color, it gets covered with white fur.

With our various cats, we have white, gray, black, brown, and orange fur. There IS no escaping.

Really? Rubber gloves? I had no idea. I will have to try that. I bought a new pair of rubber cleaning gloves last week. I normally use one of those lint brush rollers to remove hair from my clothing, but they don't last long.

...Well, its just past lunch and no one here has noticed that I didn't have any large tape at home
(I didn't have time to sit there with a little roll of tape!) ...Unless they think I am just wearing an angora sweater
I will take home some packing tape today!

I usually hang my clothes to wear that day over the door..
But for some reason, they picked that exact 10 minutes to roll all around on my bed and then jump down as if they had done nothing, thinking I wouldn't notice.. the stinkers...

Didn't you know your just not dressed without a little extra hair on your clothes! My husband and I lay our clothes out on the bed and its usually Erics clothes they lay on. He has to dress nicer at work then I do!!!

Last week I had to go into hospital to have minor surgery on my hip. I was advised to take in my own dressing gown........
So, I washed my lovely white towelling dressing gown, and tumble dried it so it was all fluffy and cosy, and then, laid it on the bed ready for when I needed it.
Silly me left it on the bed while I went to work. Needless to say my lovely, clean, warm fluffy gown made a perfect cosy bed for Villy, who covered it in BLACK hairs!
I didn't realise quite how hair she'd made it until I was wearing it at the hospital and the hairs were getting everywhere!
b.t.w. she knew how nervous I was the night before, I hardly slept and she hardly left my side, bless her

I have a pink comforter on my bed and Frantic is a tuxedo. He leaves hair all over the bottom of the bed. I bring in a spray bottle with water, spray my hand (NOT the comforter) and swipe at the hairs. Rub in 1 long swipe in 1 direction. It pulls the hair right off. Don't use a lot of water...just enough to dampen your palm.

Congratulations, you've discovered their secret. They're selective shedders .

Last wek I did two things - I put a pure white duvet cover on my bed and then got clothes ready for hte next morning by laying out a black sweater on my chair. So of course I wake up next morning to find that Ellie has slept on my duvet and Persil decided to sleep on my chair! You would htink they had done it deliberately that way round!

I actually don't have this problem..

Then again I wear black all the time and my furbaby is black

Spray with Static Guard and give it a good shake.

I have to be careful, with black velvet. In the case of pants, I put them on, just before exiting. I also have a pair of black velvet pumps, which I carry to the door and slip into, on the back porch.

i dont have a problem with cat hair on clothes so much, but always find i get it in my mouth!!

*coughing up hairballs*
post #25 of 27
Do you mean it's possible to actually wear a black shirt that is not covered in kitty hair?
post #26 of 27
I'm stupid enough to do that too I like duct-tape for aking fur off things. That or I roll some selotape up into a scrunched up ball and roll it around on the shirt. Works wonders. I won't comment - I'll keep my eyes shut!

For me it's white clothes & Mini's black hairs!
Dummy me, I'll lay out my freshly laundered white pants on the bed, & minutes later, there she is..she loves Mom's clothes.
Ah, yes..A lint roller is a wonderful thing!
