There are lots of ways to remove hair shed by your pets, including both cats and dogs, from clothing. Washing cotton and polyester fabric will generally remove most pet hair.
However, if you wash certain fabrics, such as flannel and other fabric that has lots of static clings you will notice that the hair will just embed further if you wash and dry it. This is why it is often difficult to get pet hair off blankets.
You can pick hair off with your fingers, of course, but this can take quite a bit of time and unless you are very patient, you may not get it all. Certainly, you can’t pick it off as fast as it gets on there, typically.
Because of all these difficulties, the best way you can adopt to clean pet hair is using a pet hair lint roller. They’re not very expensive and they work like magic. No more washing or picking from fingers, the roller does it all.
You should also shake out all clothing out before you wash it and also once it comes out of the wash and before you put it in the dryer.
Further, if you reduce static cling this will also help remove pet hair from your clothing because it will loosen it from the clothing and let the washing machine and dryer remove it. Therefore, use both liquid fabric softener and dryer sheets.
Finally, wipe out your washing machine and clean out the lint trap of your dryer after you wash clothing full of pet hair, to remove any from the machines and keep it from getting on subsequent loads of laundry.
