When one of his technicians first suggested he order a FURemover Pet Hair Removal Broom for the clinic, my veterinarian dad was skeptical: “We already have a broom.” But his staff was persistent, and days later, he became the proud owner of a FURemover Pet Hair Removal Broom with Squeegee & Telescoping Handle That Extends from 3 - 5', Black & Yellow. After a few turns around the office, our family veterinarian was so impressed with the FURemover that he ended up buying one for home too.

Much like preachers’ kids seem to attract an inordinate amount of trouble (I know this because I watched a lot of 7th Heaven growing up), a veterinarian’s dogs are predisposed to being exceptionally hairy and messy. My family has three exceptionally hairy, messy dogs. But if it weren’t for the assortment of dog toys stashed in every cabinet, the glass jar of kibbles in the pantry, and the dog bed in the corner of the living room, you may not know it.

That’s because my mom is ruthless with the FURemover and the FURemover is ruthless with pet hair.

FURemover

Unlike your run-of-the-mill broom, the bristles are made of 100 percent rubber. That means they can swiftly pull pet hair from hardwoods and vinyl, as well as dig in deep to snake hair from high pile carpet. The bristles are easy to clean, too, as you can wash them with warm, soapy water between uses.

Last time I was home, my mom interrupted her regularly scheduled housekeeping to share what was essentially her own infomercial about the FURemover. “Look at this! It’s picking up stuff I didn’t even know was there!” If you’re the kind of person who gets satisfaction from seeing stuck-on grease melt away from pans or soapy grime vanish from the spigot, the FURemover is about to rock your world.

But even if you don’t have pets, it’s still worth a buy, notes my mom, who has taken advantage of the extendable handle to chase a number of dust bunnies out of hiding. “It’s an under-the-bed game changer.” Plus, it has a squeegee edge for sweeping up spills.

I’m not saying the FURemover is going to solve all your problems, but if you want to change your life, it might just be the first step. (Buy it here.)
