How to Remove Pet Hair from Your Subaru

Subaru owners love their pets as much (or more) than their dependable all-wheel drive vehicles, but sometimes pets leave a little too much of themselves behind in your car. If you have a pet that sheds, you know what we’re talking about: Those hairs that seem to weave their way into the car’s upholstery and glue themselves to the dashboard.

All that pet hair can be unsightly, but there are ways to remove it–and prevent it from getting there in the first place. Subaru of Morristown loves pets, as evidenced by our commitment to local shelters, so here’s a few simple tools and tips from us for how to keep your car, pup, and kitty all in harmony.

Get a Small Vacuum

This is the most obvious one, but it’s the most important. An affordable, rechargeable wireless vacuum that can be stashed under a seat or in the trunk will prove to be an invaluable asset for sucking up those light hairs your pet drops on the surface of the upholstery.

Use a Wire Brush

Unfortunately, not all hairs are easy to suck up with a vacuum. Some pets just have stubborn hair that gets stuck easily. For that, you’ll want a good wire brush to loosen them up so they can be picked up or vacuumed out. This is only for those with cloth interior, however: Don’t destroy your leather over some pet hairs.

Try a Balloon

Static can work, and an inflated rubber balloon is actually a clever, non-invasive way to pick up stray pet hairs from hard surfaces and headrests. Give it a shot!

Use a Dryer Sheet on the Dash

For dust, pollen, and of course pet hair, a standard dryer sheet is great for cleaning off hard surfaces like the dashboard and console. It’ll easily cling to loose hairs so you can wipe them out of sight with a flick of the wrist.

Preventing Pet Hair in the Car

Naturally you can do the same things you do to keep your pet from distributing hairs all over your house, like bathing and brushing them frequently to minimize shedding. But beyond that, you can also buy a seat cover to keep those pesky fibers from scattering all over the interior itself. Many of those covers can cover the entire backseat, wrapping around the headrests, and can be easily removed to shake out or vacuum up.
