use a large washable blanket instead.

in your house if you have shedding problem. And do remember to change your
filter regularly. This will not only keep the fur/hair away, it will also
improve your indoor air quality.
broom – there are many pets hair removal broom in the market. We recommend the
ones with rubber squeegee bristles with will effectively roll up fur/hair into
balls making it easier for you to do vacuuming. If you are unable to find
rubber broom, a rubber sole shoe can do just fine, especially on upholstery and
this is not recommended but if you can live with the fur/hair but just want
your house to be aesthetically neat and tidy, you can install flooring colors
that matches your pet fur/hair! Choose light/yellow colors for golden retriever,
