It's hard to say no when Fido or Fluffy wants to join you on the couch—even when you remember how long it took to remove the leftover pet hair the last time. Sure, your vacuum has a furniture attachment, but you probably have something in your arsenal of cleaning tools that works even better than a Hoover maneuver: a rubber glove. Pull on a pair, rub your hands all over the furry zone, and let the static cling do the work. Rinse off in the sink, making sure that the drain catcher is in place to snag the fur that falls off. Try this trick with a squeegee for similar success.
