I have a short haired dog (Bull Mastiff) that I have taken 4 wheeling with me a few times and trying to get the hair out of the carpet is a nightmare!
Anybody know of a trick??
UUGGHHH

Man I thought this was a joke. Short haired dogs are almost worse than long haired. I would try to use a shop vac or other vacuum with strong suction. Use an attachment to work the hair out from the fibers. The car washes usually have really good vacuums, but I hate the thoughts of where it was used before. Another good solution would be a roll of 2" masking tape. Just pull off a strip and start pressing it onto the carpet. Seems to take forever, but it will do the trick effectively. I still feel like this is a joke. Anyway, those are the best solutions I have found. Good luck.

Haha, it's not a joke. I am just sick of dealing with this and figured SOMEONE has a great trick I don't know about.
The tape thing might work though. I have used a tape lint roller but something stronger like duct tape might do the trick better. I'll try that.
Thanks for the response.

I use a dog prush (the kind with a brush on one side and the rounded pins on the other) to help work them out and then I vaccum. Works pretty well for me... sometimes I havr to use the tape method

The JK is by far the worst Jeep I have every owned for traping dog hair. (and I have owned 10 Jeeps).

I don't know what they did with this "new" carpet, but it SUCKS for this.

I use a shop vac and one of those rubbery dog hair brushes with pretty decent results. But, it is still a chore.

My wife bought one of these from Wal-mart and it worked. We bought some furniture from some friends that had a Doberman, and it was shocking to see the amount of hair. The brush roled the hair right off the counch and we vaccumed it up. We had tried everything, our daughter as it turned out was allergic to pet dander and hair, she sits on the couch with no problems.

lint brush for clothes seems to work real good. If it's not strong enough itake duck tape and put on lint brush over a fresh lint tape. Take a strip of the duck tape and apply the back to the lint brush. Pain to get off so don't do a continuous wrap. Very simple but picks up allot even without the duck tape.

I was just using elbow grease...just sitting at the car wash for an hour *****ing the whole time.

Then I started doing nothing...that worked for a while but now it isn't.

I decided there is two choices left for getting the hair out the carpet...get rid of the carpet or get rid of the dog...kinda like the dog so Herculiner is on the shopping list.

My TJ Rhino lined, TAN! It is graet in the summer but kinda sucks in the winter. Does not retain heat anywhere near as well as the carpet. So I would put the carpet back in for winter.

I had DIY tub liner in my YJ in BLACK and it REALLY SUCKED for the dogs. The black bedliner gets REALLY REALLY hot in the sun and burns the dogs paws. If tub lining for dogs, I would do at least grey.

lint brush for clothes seems to work real good. .

Not with this guy and my Aussie.

i just got a dyson and haven't tried it for the jeep yet...

To get dog hair out, i just use a shop vac and if some is still left I get some duct tape to remove it. So far, so good.

I have a white boxer, and he coats the entire interior with short white hairs and it's a serious pain to clean. I shop vac and rubber glove it but can never get it all.

Whatís with the phallic dildo looking dog hair cleaning tools? :eek:

I have two dogs and can relate to the carpet that sucks (literally it sucks the hair into it). A shop vac works for me but it takes forever. Iím going to take it out and go with line-x eventually.

My wife wants to know why it has bristles:D



Seriously I use my air compressor to clean the seats and before I removed the carpet I cleaned it the same way, works excellent.

I tried to be a neat freak about the dog hair (before I got a dog I remember getting into my buddies car that was loaded with hair thinking "he wants me to sit in that"). Shop Vac and duct tape is a good start but does not compare to brushing the hair out. You brush and it rolls up in a ball. I have a great dane so the hair is short and does not want to come out of the seats and carpet. I use a hair brush but will be looking at getting the walmart special!

That's amazing to think that a dog that size could even FIT into a Jeep. Great looking dog....bet he eats like a monster.

One shepard one English bull dog.

Best solution I have found

Take the top off and instant vacuum.

Snadtoy,

looks good. Just wondering, did you strip everything yourself before you took it in?

How much did they charge you and how long did it take?

Thanks!

guess I should make a seperate post and not hi-jack this one.

In short, I removed all the interior roof and doors. Delivered on a Tuesday night 7ish. When I got there I removed the top, doors, and driver seat.

Picked up on Thursday morning 10:00. Put top and doors back on.

Shop was a little slow and I got a deal. Paid $600.00 and done in Line-
X extra. Owner of the shop claims it was lots more work and material than he realized. Said any future jobs would run at least $100.00 more.

I originally wanted silver to match the body, but it would have added almost $200 to the price.

Shopped this around. Gatorhide shop 4 hours away wanted 700.00 plus all the work I did.

Local shop that sprays a different material same as above.

Went to first Line-x shop and was quoted 750 - 900.

I will do a complete post with pics tomorrow

Only problem I've found with tub lining in black is it gets really hot on dog paws.

Kidding, but bedliner would be great with a mat over it or in line-x xtreme in a lighter color for heats sake

I solved the issue in my TJ by doing the Rhino Lining in tan. Kept the pups paws cool, took a serious beating, matched the Jeep and rarely looked dirty like black would.

Thanks Stub. I was never a dog person but he changed that. Get him around a unknown 3 yr old child and he is the most gentle guy ever, come ring our door bell and his bark will make you SH!0T your pants. I live in Iowa so no crime to worry about, but I now never think twice about Ali being home alone when he is there.

He is not allowed in the Unlimited (yet). So he only gets to ride in the TJ. I just recline the passenger seat a bit so he can sit and lean back. He does fit much better with the top off and then does not have to hunch over to see out. He eats about 8 cups a day which translates to a just over a 50lb bag a month. As he gets older, he was only 1 year and 4 months old in the pictures, it tapers down to 6 cups a day.

Dude, I have white pug that gets hair every where. Try mixing some fabric softener with water and mist it on to your carpet with a spray bottle. Don't saturate the carpet, just a fine mist is all you need. Allow to dry. After the carpet is dry, go over with your vacuum cleaner. It works great also those silicon/rubber dog brushes work wonderst to get hair out. It takes me about 5 minutes to get the hair out. Try to ride with the top off one the way to cleaning it, it gets the little flyer-bys from finding a new spot to hide in.

I used this stuff before:

http://img.meijer.com/assets/product_images/styles/large/1001029_033200114482_A_250.jpg


I was surprised to find it worked pretty well.

The pet hair release breaks the static charge that bonds pet hair to carpets, rugs and upholstery. Once the bond is broken, the pet hair is easily removed when vacuumed.

Problem is short haired dogs. I have a dog with short hair and I swear every single hair is slightly curved so both ends of each hair is stuck in the carpet so all those brushes, rollers, tape, etc does not seem to help much
