I've found a lot of so-called helpful hints on line and many seem bogus or at least they don't work for me. But in this case I was very pleased to learn that latex gloves work great at raking up pet hair off carpet (in this case my truck) and upholstery. The most discouraging thing as a pet owner has been keeping things as clean as I once did. I don't think I was neurotic before but maybe. I'm not quite sure. But between dust, I have a pet door and they come in and out a multitude of times a day, and pet hair from my Golden it's easy to be overwhelmed. So I was pleased to learn of this tip and how easy it makes vacuuming now. Try it out and let me know what you think.
