Do you keep lint rollers in your home? If you have a pet in your home you need something like a lint roller to remove stray pet hairs from your clothing. After all, seeing Fluffy’s snow white fur on your favorite suit at a job interview doesn’t necessarily make a good impression.
We have five cats and a dog. We know all about pet hair. It gets every where. It’s almost like a full time job just to keep on top of it. We have to constantly dust and vacuum, not to mention brush the hair off the pet bedding.
If you have hardwood floors you might even be familiar with the hair “tumbleweeds” – little clumps of pet hair that blows around on the floor. Until recently I didn’t even know how to handle the tumbleweeds except pick them up with my bare hands. They tend to “run away” from vacuums and cling to the broom. They were not easy to clean up.
We have had lint rollers in our home for as long as we can remember. One year as a joke we bought our son a five pack from one of the warehouse clubs we belong to. Our son won’t leave the house – even to go to school – without making 100% certain there is no pet hair on his outfit.
There is more to lint rollers than just removing stray hairs from your clothing. They can be used for other things – one of which is an unexpected use (and very handy too!).
We have a variety of lint rollers from Butler’s Evercare Lint Roller collection. They come in different shapes and sizes as well as a few which have more to them that just a sticky roller.
Evercare Lint Rollers are great for picking up small things, like pins and needles. If you have ever dropped them on the floor – especially a container of them – you know how difficult they are to pick up.
Lint rollers can be used to aid you in picking up broken glass (just be careful when peeling off the sticky paper).
Lint rollers can also help you to pick up pine needless from your real Christmas tree. In fact, Evercare has a lint roller that is larger than average and comes in a pole to help you reach hard-to-reach places. It’s called the Extreme Mega Stick Roller. This roller can even be used to catch pet hair on the floor – like those “tumbleweeds” I mention earlier. This is PERFECT for tumbleweeds! I can even reach them under the table with this roller.
The surface of this is 10″ which helps you clean up a large area at one time. Replacement papers (roller) is also available.
Evercare makes another lint roller product that is a must have for pet owners. It’s called Evercare Fur Erase Roller. It’s two products in one. One side is the handy lint roller, the other side is a brush. You can use the brush to gather up as much hair as you can from your furniture or carpet, pick it up with your hands (as much as you can) then use the sticky part to collect the remaining hair.
I have found this product to be especially helpful. We gave the cats our love seat (it has a cover on it) so that they would stay off the rest of the furniture. Needless to say the love seat gets covered in hair. We even refer to it as the “hair chair.” I hate cleaning it because of the hair. With the Evercare Fur Erase Roller cleaning it has been a lot easier.
Here is the unexpected use for Evercare Lint Rollers that I recently learned about – removing fleas and ticks off your pet. I would have never thought to do that.
When your pet has fleas and/or ticks it can be a nightmare. It’s hard to get them. You can brush your dog but the fleas will just jump away. However, if you run a Evercare Lint Roller over your pet you can capture many of the fleas. The paper is sticky so once they get caught in the sticky paper they won’t be able to jump away. The same would happen to ticks too (they are just as fast as ticks).
THANKFULLY our pets have not had fleas or ticks, so I haven’t been able to try it out, but I do think it’s an ingenious idea. I have even told a few friends about it and they think it’s a great idea too.
Evercare has other products that you might be interested in as well.
Featuring 40 percent larger sheets, the Evercare Pet Plus Giant Lint Roller Extreme Stick guarantees that every spot in the room of the house is free of fur. Consumers can choose from two comfort-grip handle designs-T shaped, ideal for maneuvering on stairs, or straight-handled for more standard jobs like removing dander and fur from chairs, drapes and lampshades. The new lint rollers are also designed with an encapsulated, fresh linen scent.
The Easy Reach Lint Roller from Evercare Pet Plus is designed with a customized angled handle to remove pet hair from clothing in hard-to reach spots on the shoulders and back before heading out for the day.
The Extreme Stick Travel Roller is available in a smaller size, though is every bit as sticky as larger size rollers. Pet owners can store it in a purse, luggage or car to easily grab when stepping out-for business or pleasure. These are so compact that they can easily fit in your purse, backpack or brief case.
I like that the brand offers different products to suit people’s needs. They are also affordable too, ranging in price from $1.49 (travel size) to $19.99 (Extreme Stick Mega Roller). Most products are $3.99 – $5.99. They can be found at many retail locations as well as online at Amazon and on Butler website, CleanerHomeLiving.com.
