If you have a car and a hairy fluffy pet who loves long drives, your vehicle's interior must have a fur blanket- and not the comfortable kind! Pet hair accumulation in cars is unhygienic and can cause severe allergic reactions to you and your loved ones. Even though removing the hair is time-consuming, you can't just leave your furry little friends behind. So, the best option is to take proactive measures to make the cleaning process as simple as possible. In this guide, you can find effective and easy ways to clean pet hairs from your vehicle.

Brush Your Pet

Before putting your pet in the car, brush its lush coat. This will help you eliminate all loose hair, reducing the total amount of hair shed on the interior of your Mercedes-Benz car during the car ride.

Place Seat Covers

Car seat covers are mostly made from synthetic fabrics, such as polyester and nylon. As a result, they have more static cling than natural fabrics. Due to this reason, car seats attract animal hair, and it is quite challenging to clean it off. Putting seat covers made from natural fabrics will ensure your car seat attracts less hair. Moreover, you can easily take off the seat covers and clean them outside the car, which is more accessible than getting hair off the synthetic fabric.

Use A Vacuum Cleaner

A high-powered vacuum cleaner is one of the easiest ways to rid of the pet hair piling up in your vehicle. The vacuum wand can even reach hard-to-access places, such as air conditioning vents. You can use the one you have in the house or go to car washes to find strong commercial vacuums.

Get Rubber Gloves

Put on a pair of rubber gloves and move your hands over the hair-ridden car seats. The hair will clump up, and you can easily pick them off. Make sure to sweep your hands in only one direction, or else it will undo all the hard work.

Use Lint Rollers or Hair Curlers

Another easier and cheaper way to get rid of pet hair is using hair curlers or a lint roller. A lint roller is designed to pick off lint and hair from clothes. Therefore, it will quickly remove all stubborn hair from your vehicle. If you don't have a lint roller handy, use hair curlers. Their hair-grabbing quality will gather all hair in no time.
