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.
From time to time your leash may get heavily soiled. If your leash is nylon just place it in your wash. Wash with plently of clothes to protect your washer or tie a towel around the clasp. Just hang to dry.
If your leash is leather use a lether cleaner or wet a cleaning towel with a mild soap and water and gently wipe the surface. Be sure wipe off any excess water.
Here is a question submitted by Lynda:
What is the easiest way to clean dried, caked-on dog poopout from between the grooves of my Nike shoes?
Here is a question near and dear to my heart since I have a dog and a backyard I have direct experience with this problem. What I do is use a pointy tool like a nut pryer(used to get the small pieces of broken nuts out of nut shells) or a small screwdriver. It gets in the groves well and will with a little patience get most of it. I also clap the shoes together (outside) as I am working and the poop works free. For a final cleanup I get up early and walk my dog across a grassy field and the morning dew does the rest. Oh the things we do for our pets! I hope that helps and good luck.
