Imogen, this seems an appropriate time to ask if you could do a post for those of us with pets please. The hair! It gets everywhere! Any tips on clothes to wear at home that don’t attract quite as much hair? I like wearing layered knits but they are not exactly practical when you have long haired pets as I do. Thank you for any help you can offer.  Siobhan


Having had dogs since I was a teenager I’m fully aware of the issue of pet hair.  I’ve always had whippets, who have short hair, but know the issue of hair can be troubling.

Smooth fabrics such as silk, satin, leather, polyester blends won’t have the hair stick to them in the same way that coarser cottons, wool, acrylic, mohair, and anything with a rougher texture will.  Denim doesn’t seem to have too much hair magnetism either!

Depending on the color of your pets, you may find that wearing a neutral more similar to them makes the problem less obvious.

Sticky Tape Pet Hair Remover

One of my favorite tricks to removing pet hair from a suit jacket or the like is to wrap sticky tape around your hand (sticky side out) then dab at yourself free of pet hair.  Works like one of those lint removers you can buy. Great trick for at the office when you don’t have a lint remover with you!
