WalMart has a longish brush with green rubber 'fingers' that is sold with the fur brushes, but is for cleaning. It does a fantastic job on the car seats. Inside, I spray the couch lightly with Febreeze and use the upholstery tool on the vacuum. Then I have to vacuum the upholstery tool. The green brush works indoors, too. I should pick up another one. Come to think of it, I used it on my last Siberian, too. I don't think Lily would be impressed.

We have the Pledge Fabric Sweeper, but usually I just vacuum. Our Bissell vacuum came with an attachment for pet hair, but it stopped working after a few uses. I've yet to get it working, but it was great while it lasted.

I'm triple- superior MAD- now!

I just wash the slipcovers. Long ago I bought a rubber broom with a yellow handle at the county fair that was perfect for the old cut pile wool rug. Other rubber brooms broke. The vacuum can pick up hair just fine from the current low uncut pile rug and tiled floor.

the attachement on my vacuum works wonderful for stairs and the furniture...bc despite covering up the couch some of Brodie's hair makes its' way onto it somehow.

i think it's called a turbo brush. you can buy one at lowes and places like that if your vacuum didn't come with one and it will work as long as your vacuum has good suction.
The brush on the bottom turns.

I have found the very best cleaning attachment is a dog's wire slicker brush! No kidding, it cleans stray hair out of thick carpet, rugs, furniture and car seats. I use it just before vacuuming and ALL the hair is gone! And, this was when I had mostly labs. Now with the poodles it's never a problem.
