This is the final yet most amazing life hack in existence. If you find this trick anywhere else on the internet I would be surprised.

First, this trick only works for rooms with doors that can be closed.

Second, there must be two windows (with screens) in the room.

Here is how you activate a self-hair removing room. Open up one window as much as possible. Crack the other window about 1/2 inch. Use a spray bottle and moisten the the screen behind the cracked window.

That's it.

This will create a vacuum effect in your room. The hair will collect and stick between the screen and cracked window.Every 3 days clean out the collected like of hair and re-moisten the screen. It will take about between 3-7 days for hair to collect but after about a month you will find that it has caught up with all the hair that had built up in your home. From there out you may never ser hair again! Hahababah.

Nice collection of methods here. It's the static that makes pet hair (and dust) stick to things, so anything that helps break that static will help. I combine #2 & #6, using wet rubber gloves to clean most of the fur off upholstery, carpet, clothes, etc. Then follow with a vacuum/lint brush. I had one concern about #5, though. Washing a pet weekly will probably be too drying on their skin. For many reasons, regular grooming (#10) is the best choice for your pet and home.
