If you own a dog or cat, then you would probably know that they shed hair and sooner or later there hair would be everywhere.

Vacuuming removes most of the hair but there will still be left on your clothes, sofa, etc.

Using the stickiness of  duct tape all those hair and small fluffs can be removed with a simple duct tape roller.

Step 1: This is what you need.

To make the roller, you will need the following items

- Stiff steel wire.
- Wooden dowel or broomstick handle
- Double sided tape
- 2 25mm wood screws
- Duct tape

and you would also be needing some tools

- Screwdriver to fit your screws
- Needle nose pliers
- Sharp knife (not shown)
- Saw
- Ruler
- Pencil

Step 2: Keep on rollin'

I am making my roller out of a 45mm piece of wooden dowel since it was to my disposal. A broomstick handle will also work but will clog up a lot faster since there are a lot less exposed area on the duct tape.

Start by adding a layer of duct tape completely around the dowel. This will give you the precise width of the duct tape and nice surface for the double side tape to stick on.

Once this was done, the dowel can shortened by cutting the tips off.

The last step is to add the screws where the roller are to be attached to the handle.
The center can be found by using the ruler and measuring the distance across and halving it a few times. Once the center is found drive the screws into the dowel.

Adding the screws into dowel at this point will save a lot of hassle once the tape is on the roller.

I always though to make something like your design. I use my hand, rolling the duct tape over it. That is not easy to use, because the tape slides toward the side.
