Im just wondering if there might be some type of spray on repellent you can put on wool coats, sweaters, clothes, that somewhat repel dust, pet hairs, etc? I thought maybe Scotch guard but am not real sure if that would work. I have 2 cats and even though my coat is in a closet when I dont wear it, the second I put it on it seems to attract the dust and lint flying around in my living room. And no, Im not getting rid of my pets because it seems to pick up hair and other crap when I go to maybe a friends house, or their pet hairs...
Not sure if theres any such product but I go through those lint roller things like crazy! Any such product?

Please don't do that to a wool coat. Buy a lint brush.

I have the same problem with my black wool coat that I use for everyday wear. That's why I plan on switching to a brown lambskin jacket.

Honestly, we keep our coats in a closet AND under some sort of cover, either the vinyl zip ones or plastic like from the dry cleaners, and put it on the second before leaving the house.

This is for wool and other fabrics both, because we all have dark coats and one big fat fluffy white cat that gets her fur on every single thing. It helps a little.

Picked up a lint brush the other day and it works wonders! So much cheaper than going through those tape roller things so much too!
Thanks for the advice everyone~~~

Duct tape wrapped around your hand works much better, and is way cheaper.
