Removing pet hair
1 Before getting started, remove as much hair as possible by vacuuming the surface thoroughly.

2 Fill a small bucket halfway with room temperature water. This will save you frequent trips back and forth to the faucet.

3 Wearing a latex or rubber glove, dip your palm in the water. In a smooth motion, run your hand along the surface, pressing firmly. The hair will stick to the glove. Repeat once or twice until that section is totally hair-free. Dip your hand back into the bucket to remove the stuck-on hair. Repeat until the entire surface is clean.
