Pet hair and dander + allergies

My dad gave me 2 rocking chairs that are in perfect condition. The problem is the lady who owned them had a dog and the chairs had hair all over them. My husband vacummed the chairs but whenever I sit in them I start itching and sneezing like crazy. Is there anyway to get the pet dander out of the chair. I cant afford to buy new furniture so getting rid of it really isnt an option.

  • I would wash them down with a good shampoo to help remove the pet dander and dust mites. First vacuum very well then wash and air dry outside in the sun and hopefully that should help.

  • Try shampooing the chairs.You could also cover them with sheets for the time being.The sheets can be removed for washing whenever you feel they need it.I really don't know what else to suggest.
