It doesn’t matter if its Dog hair or Cat Hair, it always seems to stick like a magnet to your bedding. There doesn’t exist any material yet that is 100% effective against pet hair, but there is some bedding material that gets pretty close.
If you’re in a search for comforters or any bedding that fights against pet hair, then we have some helpful ideas for you. In this guide, we show you some of the bedding that has worked well for us and give helpful Tips to better control the Hair-Epidemic problem.
Best Fabric for Pet Hair
The best material to use would be 100% linen sheets. Not only is the material soft and great to use during the hot summer months it also doesn’t hold much dog or cat hair.
The reason why it works so well is due to how tightly woven the material is, or its thread count. The more tightly woven the fibers are the less likely pet hair will attach to it.
This is also why Microfiber or Silk bed sheets are great to use as the pet hair has a hard time sticking to them. While silk works great to repel pet hair, it can easily get snagged on your pet’s nails and easily get ruined. So silk is not always the best to use.
You can even find Pet Hair Resistant Bed Spreads like this one that can help you with the fight against shedding.
Or check out StayClean Comforter here if you just want a comforter. The pet hair just falls right off, really worth it.
I always recommend everyone have a Mattress Protector on their beds. These modern-day mattress protectors don’t make those plastic sounds and also help control the pet hair issue.
The biggest upside is that these protectors save your mattress from liquids.
Since these protectors act like shields, the pet hair just stays on top along with anything else that may fall off such as dander or mud. Just slip the protector in the wash and wash it by how the manufacturer recommends it to be cleaned. A mattress protector is important to have if you want your mattress to last a long time.
If you don’t want to be bothered with removing the bedding to wash it all the time you can use a Pet Hair Sponge.
Think of the Pet Hair Sponge as a Magnet that when rubbed against your bedding will pick up those pet hairs for you.
Here is a Pet Hair Sponge called the Gonzo Pet Hair Lifter. It can remove cat hair and dog hair from just about anything. Really worth it if you want to sweep the pet hair off your bed or even your clothes.
Reducing Pet Hair on Bed
You can reduce the pet hair problem by combing your dog or cat often. This collects most of the hair that would have ended up on your bedding.
If you have a cat, you can get a self-grooming brush. No need to brush your cat when they can do it for you. Here is a self-grooming cat brush here called Sentry Groom N Comb Catnip Cat Self-Grooming Aid.
For both Dogs and Cats, you can use a Brush made for Shedding. This way you can control the shedding which helps leave your bedding pet hair free more often.
Another way to control pet hair and to make your bed/comforter dog proof is to use a Pet Blanket like this one. These blankets are waterproof, and pets love the feel of it. Place this over your bedding to have a pet hair resistant blanket that also helps to protect from drool and other little things.
This will also greatly help to cut down on washing your bedding too. I would recommend getting two, so you always have one on the bed while the other is getting cleaned. Another great thing is that most of the Pet Blankets look nice and feel soft to sleep on.
Using a Pet Blanket is probably one of the most Pet-Friendly things you can do if you want to control the pet hair and also have a soft and comfortable spot on your bed for your little friends.
