When a Floppycats’ reader commented on our YouTube video of he Lilly Brush Pet Hair Removal Brush, and mentioned how much she liked The Magic Pet Hair Remover, I wanted to cover it on the site. Here’s what she had to say.
“The Four Paws Magic Cat Hair Remover is the best thing I’ve found for removing dust, dirt and cat fur from furniture and comforters, but the reviews suggest it’s lousy on clothes.
It’s a sponge that you sweep dry over large surfaces, removing wads of fur as you go. When the sponge gets dirty, wash it with soap and water and let it dry thoroughly before using again”
The Magic Pet Hair Remover does just what it says in its title – and the reviews exist to prove it. On Amazon, it has a 4 out of 5 star rating, and even more importantly, it costs less than $5. The review section is full of customers who randomly stumbled upon the product after being driven to desperation trying to fix their pet hair problem. Many picked up Magic Pet Hair Remover because of its low price. It seems like the original thought was more of a “I don’t necessarily think this will work, but it’s so cheap that it’s worth a shot” rather than “Oh I heard about this stuff, I’ve been looking for it everywhere!”
What these customers who weren’t expecting much found is that the Magic Pet Hair Remover, for the most part, actually delivers on its claims. You can use the product to remove hair from beds for cats, your sofas, blankets, clothing (although some reviewers have stated it works much better on other material), carpet, and more. It’s one of the top cat products out there, especially with that discount price. The Magic Pet Hair Remover consists of one large sponge that you can use to wipe up pet hair off a multitude of surfaces. This sponge must be used dry, not wet. You also must pull the hair off of it afterward, which may sound unpleasant, but reviewers say it comes out easily in clumps. It’s also a bit more economical than pet hair rollers because those products don’t last very long. The Magic Pet Hair Remover can be reused for quite some time, and if it ever gets too dirty, a little soap and water can go a long way.
One reviewer claims Magic Pet Hair Remover was able to remove hair that had been ground into the carpet and been there for who knows how long. Even more amusingly, this same reviewer says she has a rather fancy vacuum that specializes in picking up pet hair; however, the Magic Pet Hair Remover gave her much better results for under $5.
