Dog Hair From Upholstery

Here is a question from Marty:

How do you remove dog hair from sofa cushions?
I take it that a vacuum doesn’t work well for your dogs hair, this is also the case for myself. I have short haired dog with hair that really works its way into upholstery. I have a vacuum attachment which is actually a lint brush which can attach to my vacuum hose. You perform the lint brush motion and the vacuum picks up the hair. I find this effective, but the old stand by, and I find this faster in many cases I use plain old duct tape and tape several pieces together on the cushions and pull up and pick up dog hair until the tape is no longer sticky. I also have a rule that the dog stays off the furniture, however when no one is home that’s the first place she heads. So it is a never ending chore.
