  • a lint roller will get it off. Also a wetwipe does the trick.

  • Have you tried tha vac at the car wash? They're usually a lot more powerful than your regular house vac. I have 3 dogs and I vac it out at the car wash..seems to work for me :) Good luck, I know how frusterating dog fur can get lol!

  • I was going to recommend what darkfaery131 said, those work well. If you have any microfiber towels those also work.

  • if the carwash vacuum doesn't work (I love those things LOL) I got a little pet hair brush from petsmart for about $3, it's rubber and you kind of scrub with it and it pulls up all the hair. It'll of course be more time consuming but it's at least a $3 solution.

  • Do you have vacuums at any of your gas stations?? They generally cost $.50-$2.00 to run for a few minutes. If everything is clean out and ready for the vacuum before you enter in your money you can get a small to mid-size car vacuumed out in the time allotted. Large cars like a van, may need two runs.

  • masking tape wrapped around your hand like a lint brush or a lint brush works for the car.

  • I cover my car seat with a sheet when I allow the dogs in. Keeps dog hair to a minimum.
