Dogs, carpets and my hair filled paradise

Omg I’m NOT a good housekeeper by any means. It’s pretty awful really! However with two Chugs (who by the way shed like crazy), I have a slight obsession with keeping hair off the carpet, floors and furniture.

This week, we have a friend staying with us and he brought his pony dog Freyja.

Our two Chugs have been having a blast playing with her but this means that the additional running around and rolling has caused an absurd amount of dog hair to build up.

Today we are sad for them to leave. We rarely get to see this friend and it’s been a fantastic visit. Lucky for us they plan to return next month.

I am however anxious to get out my cleaning supplies and get to the floors. In the same way though, I’m dreading it. Vacuums never seem to get all the dog hair up and I end up getting on my hands and knees with a rubber brush to get the rest up. It sucks.

With two asthmatics in the house though, I have no choice. Plus, seriously I hate waking in a house that reeks like dogs.

So those of you with dogs, do you have any carpet cleaning tricks? Any products you love for getting the hair and smell out (nontoxic)? Comment and I may give your tip a try for a future post. 🙂
