Cat Hair Tumbleweeds

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Now, I'm referring to those balls of cat hair that roll around on hardwood or tile floors and add copious amounts of fuel to the dust bunnys' fire.

With 3 cats and all hardwood floors, they're a little out of control for me this year. I do a complete sweep and mop twice a week, but I was wondering if there's a product out there that I can just do a quick once-over every day just to keep things under control. I was thinking a swiffer sweeper might work...I'd rather not buy something made by procter and gamble, though. But if it really works, I might just have to.

Does anyone have any ideas?

They make little dust mops that I like. Its just a white rag type thing that goes over a flat surface (like a swiffer but different) that picks up dirt and dust really well. I will see what I can google for you!

Okay heres what I got!!

I got a swiffer imitation at a dollar store, they also sell the refil cloths. Works great on my wood floors.
I have 7 cats, vaccuum twice a week and use the 'swiffer' every day.

The swiffer does a great job! There are some imitation ones that you may prefer.

They are shorthairs, and I try to brush them every day with a flea comb. During shedding season, though, it's very difficult to keep up with them.

I'm off to look for an imitation Swiffer! Thanks for the ideas

Gotta say my mom and i are both swiffer users, haha... cant lie, it works and it's fast... before swiffer though, my mom would use a little non-electric like push broom thing (God, I dont know what they're called, haha... it's kinda like a stick vac - wheels and has a bush in the bottom, then you pop open the dust resiviors on either side of the brush and dump in the trash... just not electric and real light weight - I've seen eateries use them while people are dining instead of a vacuum)... It works quite well on carpets and hard floors - I kinda stole it from my mom when I still lived in the dorms at school cuz I had both kinds of floors

Do you mean a carpet sweeper?

Yeah, I think so... haha - I know some people call vacuums "sweepers" so I guess I kinda dismissed using that word... I'll have to see if my mom's has any kind of name on it

OK, since I had to go downstairs to clean out Ollie's free feeder and waterer, haha, I checked to see what was written on the carpet sweeper thing:
"Fuller Electrostatic Carpet Sweeper"

I'm guessing Fuller is the brand... no clue where she got it, as I remember pushing it around the house when I was like 3 (I'm almost 22, haha) You can probably find them at bed bath and beyond though....
