OXO Good Grips FurLifter Pet Hair Remover Product Review

The OXO Furlifter was a recommendation that came from a reader, Diedre, who loves it.  It consists of a brush and a base. The brush lifts fur and lint off of furniture, garments and more – but, as we found, only works well on certain fabrics – like fleeces, cotton pants and more. I did not prefer it over the Lilly Brush BFF for my couches, chairs, carpeted cat tree platforms, etc. OXO Good Grips FurLifter Pet Hair Remover Product Review

OXO Good Grips FurLifter Pet Hair Remover Product Review 2How It Works

As you swipe the brush over fabric, it traps the fur and lint on it’s micro bristles. There are directional arrows on the brush that show you which way to swipe the brush – and you can simply flip the brush over to swipe in the other direction. When the brush has collected the fur and lint, you can dunk it back into the base – where fibers inside of the base clear the brush and trap fur inside. When you pull the brush back out, it comes out clear and ready to do more fur removal. You can remove the cap at the bottom of the base to remove the collected fur from off of the brush.

The Furlifter comes in 3 sizes:

There is a pivoting handle, as you will see in our review video below, but I am not a huge fan of that (even though it’s designed to keep your knuckles above the surface you’re swiping, so you don’t get rug burn or whatever) – I don’t like the lack of control I have when I hold it by the handle.  And you can see that my mom struggles with the fur removal from the same fleece top that I do because she has her hand on the handle…that’s why I prefer to hold it on the sides of the brush and forget about the handle.

No Refills – Better for Environment

Bless it for requiring no refills.  Because of the system – with the brush and the base – and then the hair collection at the bottom of the base, there are no refills necessary like you would need with those sticky rollers.  I know from a manufacturer’s perspective, products that require refills help with that residual income, but for those of us who don’t want to buy refills and want to help save more waste in our landfills – this sort of system is better suited for me. Overall, I really like the OXO FurLifter – it will remain a staple in our household, especially for my black pants!  However, I will still use the Lilly Brush BFF on couches, chairs, carpeted cat tree platforms and more.  I wish there was a perfect tool for every fabric that attracts cat fur, but so far I have not found it.  Therefore, we will keep the OXO FurLifter in our pet hair removal tool box.

  1. Hey Jenny! I’m not sure if I ever told you how much more I like the model without the pivoting handle! It works so great on my couch and bed and jackets etc. It really does! I can’t say for sure if the best part about this hair remover is the fact that you just uncap the bottom and remove the hair or the feature that removes the hair from the brush just by sliding it into the holder- usually, one swipe or two and the hair is gone from the wand. I just love that!! I think those features make is easier to use than the Lilly brush.

    1. which one is that? is it new?

      i ended up buying a new one because i found the other one didn’t remove hair as well over time – like that red fabric got matted down from inserting and removing hundreds or thousands of times and stopped picking up hair as well. so i am thinking they have about a 6-month lifespan – what do you think?

  2. Great product review post & videos, Jenny!!! Looks like an interesting hair removal product. I think that pivoting handle may be a design flaw. I like your work around on holding it a bit differently. I’m adding this to my wish list because I have a big microfiber blanket and a grey wool blanket that I’m thinking this brush may be an easier hair removal solution for over the Lilly Brush. Of course, my LURVE for the Lilly Brush is strong and deep so it’s currently my number 1 hair removal solution for clothing, furniture and bedding. A damp washcloth runs a close second. Having another (different) product can’t hurt as I constantly battle The Fluffies! 🙂 <3

    Big hugs & lots of love!! 🙂 <3
