Default removing dog hair from blankets

Not sure anyne has any ideas BUT I have 2 blankets on my couch that my 2 huskies lay on...i clean/wash 1x (somestimes 2) a month & shake them out atleast 2x a month but the blankets are still coated in fur . is there a good way to get most of the hair off of it or is it 'too late'? i have also tried, with a little luck, of vacuuming some off with the shaking of them...Thanks!!

A Zoom Groom works perfectly for this! And any other hair on furniture too!
They sell them for both cats and dogs...they are just different sizes, but basically the same tool.
I'm sure you may be able to find them cheaper...this was just the first ad that came up that included a pic of it.
Amazon.com: zoom groom for dogs

It also works great on your cat or dog!

Why not throw the blanket in the dryer (low setting) with a bounce sheet?

I tried this one and it didn't work for me. I won't buy another one.

I have two dogs and a cat. Two things have worked for me in removing hair from curtains, furniture and blankets. A swiffer duster and/or the sticky lint removers. I actually have the lint roller on a pole and it's a good size so it covers a wide area. The swiffer at least loosens it up for me if it doesn't grab it. I also have something similar to the Zoom Groom, cheap imitation actually and it does work somewhat for me. But I get more with the first two things I suggested.

It's a never ending battle!

I haven't found anything that works except replacement. My pups now each have their own comforters on the floor and strong rules against being on any furniture!

Husky hair is so hard to remove!!! I have just lived with it all of my 26 years. Had them throughout my life then got my own as I got older. I think it's just the price you pay.
