Thumbs Up/Thumbs Down: Scotch Fur Fighter

Our little Scarlett is a gem, but she is still a dog (ssshhhhh, please don't tell her!), and that means that from time to time, especially in these warmer months, she tends to shed a little fur. When I stumbled upon a $4 coupon towards the purchase of the new Scotch Fur Fighter, I decided to give it a try and let you know what I thought. Again, its just my opinion, which on the black market is going for nothing, but here you go!

The Product: Scotch Fur Fighter for Upholstery (there is a Car Interiors version available also)

The Pitch: A specially designed rubber gripper pad is attached to an easy to use handle. Run it along your upholstered furniture to trap loose hair and fur.

The Verdict: Very easy to use and the handle was already loaded with a pad straight out of the box. This thing picked up some serious fur! The handle is comfortable and it really gets into all of the nooks and crannies of your furniture. I cleaned a sofa, loveseat, chair and ottoman--all with the same pad--and I REALLY cleaned, so it can definitely hold some fur! With my coupon, I paid $5 for the handle and 5 cleaning pads, so approximately $1 per use. Definitely worth it since it cleaned way better than one of those sticky roller things. A definite thumbs up!

P.S. That is a stock photo. I toyed with showing you just how much fur it picked up, but Scarlett has an image to maintain....well, she did until she did her business in the floor at the vet's office this week...

And for our survey this time, if you have a pet, what is their biggest quirk or the funniest thing that they do?

Ah this sounds like something that would get great use in our house! The cat is quite a shedder. It's awful!! I'm going to have to try this. Oh, and my quirky cat like to lay on her back, legs in the air, to sleep. We call her the "tramp" LOL

I so want to try it! I am always fighting fur in this house! My dog is so funny... everytime I tell him down and point to the floor, he lifts his paw and moves it to the exact spot where my finger was before he lies down... he's a goof, and I love him for it!
