Swipets Cat Hair Removal Glove Review
Swipets contacted us to see if we would be interested in trying out their cat hair removal glove. I was, of course, interested, as I was raised by someone who does not like pet hair but loves her pets! In other words, I was taught to want to get rid of pet hair.
Swipets is a glove that reminds me of a garden glove I love – but it has a coating (Nitrile) on the palm side of the glove that makes it possible to swipe and collect cat hair from a number of surfaces. Think cat hair removal from furniture.
It can get dirty as you pick up dirt and oils that are on the cat fur and your furniture – but problem solved – just wash it and let it air dry and it’s as good as new. DO NOT DRY it in the dryer.
It’s great in cracks and corners of pillows, cushions and more. It works well for the sides and backs of chairs and cushions. You can see what I mean by watching our final review video below.
I liked the idea of this and thought it worked well. I do think I would use something like the Pledge Fabric Sweeper first to get the big chunks of hair and then get all the nooks and crannies of cushions, pillows, chairs, etc. with the Swipets mitt.
I did find that dampening the glove with a tiny bit of water helped with the pet hair removal process. Since I reviewed it in the winter time in the Midwest – this was even more apparent. If I had reviewed it in the summer, then I doubt the water would have been necessary.

We asked Swipets to make a $200 donation to the non-for-profit organization, Kitty City NM, in exchange for this review. We received the Swipets pet hair removal glove for review from the manufacturer. Receiving the free product and their donation to Kitty City NM did not influence this post.
Hi, I’m Jenny Dean, creator of Floppycats! Ever since my Aunt got the first Ragdoll cat in our family, I have loved the breed. Inspired by my childhood Ragdoll cat, Rags, I created Floppycats to connect, share and inspire other Ragdoll cat lovers around the world,
Awesome review and Swipets great job on the donation!
You do the most awesome reviews!
Yes, she does. And I don’t think I’ve ever thanked Jenny for her reviews. She does them like a cat person would do them–well, duh, of course she does, but that’s not quite what I mean. What DO I mean??!!
Whether it’s a toy, food, or a cat maintenance item like this glove, Jenny reviews products from all possible angles. She’s responsive to readers’ concerns and questions. For example, with this glove, she tried it on different surfaces, showed close-ups, washed it and used it again, etc. With toys, who could not want a wand after watching Chiggy play with one? Or a puzzle toy for “cheats” after watching Charlie? I love it when Jenny lines up the cobalt bowls with different food varieties. Because she has two cats with two distinct personalities, you can see how different cats react if you have a multi-cat household.
One of my biggest regrets is that Zen did not live long enough for me to purchase a certain puzzle-treat toy. Based on Charlie’s reaction, I know she would have loved it. I wish I had met Jenny sooner.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH, JENNY, FOR EVERYTHING YOU DO!!
Oh, wow – thank you for such kind words. I appreciate how observant you are – and will also welcome any thoughts/ideas you have for improvement.
Super awesome product! Thanks for the great review and discount code!
I’ve added this to my Wish List! I’ve been using a damp microfiber cloth but would much rather have one of these gloves. 🙂
Great videos, as always!
