My DH wore black uniforms and my first dog was white. Never found anything to get rid of all the white hairs!! When I wanted another dog after she died-she was 15 or 16- my husband's conditions were no poodle and not a breed that shedds. Boy that narrowed my selections down!! I have a Shih Tzu now and she doesn't shed.

The Pledge fabric sweeper works great on the couch! And yes, we have wood laminate and when the sun hits it just right you wouldn't believe how much hair you see on the floor. I run my vacuum every other day, it's the only way I can keep up with it

I vote for the vacuum cleaner to get the most hair. In between, I just use a broom. We have 3 dogs - two shedders (pomeranian mixes).

My hubby is of the "just give up" mind set - During the week I myself use a good 'ole fashioned dust mop to get the hardwood and laminate, give it a good shake off the porch. On the weekends out comes the vacumm and a swiffer with a knit cover that I dampen.

Beyond that - get a dog that matches the color of the floors : )

I have tri colored beagles so it shows up on everything!!! I was thinking because I get so much fur out of the lint trap of the dryer, maybe I should put them in on the "fluff" cycle

On upholstery the best thing to remove pet hair is a good old fashioned rubber glove. You know the kind you would use to wash dishes. My gray cat adores my navy blue chair. I keep a glove in the drawer next to the chair for quick and easy clean up. It amazes me how much fur a 10 pound short haired cat can lose in the course of a few days and still have more than enough fur to cover his body!

I also use a dust mop and a vacuum for the hard floors. With a lab and two cats I have more than my fair share of fur flying around.

I have mostly tile as well and I aways invest in a vacuum that has a hard floor setting or bare floor setting and vacuum it. If not that I spray the bottom of my broom with Endust and sweep with that, though it does make the floors kind of slick. I have a lot of hair with three dogs and one cat. I still prefer the tile, because the carpet would just be embedded with a lot of that fur. At least this way, it comes up, even if you can see it when they shed.
