Dealing with shedding fur is one of the minor annoyances that goes with most pets. Pledge Fabric Sweeper for Pet Hair is a clever little product. You roll the sweeper left and right for 8 to 12 inches on fabric. It uses one textured roller to pick up the hair and a second to brush off the first and deposit the hair into a clear chamber that also serves as the handle. It is gentle on the fabric, unlike some vacuum furniture attachments. It is disposable, meaning you can't empty the small chamber.

But it is useless in the corners at the back of sofas where the seat cushion meets the back and side panels.

I've been using the Pledge sweeper to quickly give my clothes and car seat a once-over every morning. It's handy, quick and easy to use -- and I'm most appreciative. Pledge Fabric Sweeper seems cool for picking up pet hair from sofas and other surfaces. Basically it’s two sets of rollers with a hair catcher. Pledge admonishes consumers to simply toss it when you’re done, and presumably buy another one, but Jim found that it’s not that hard to empty and reuse them instead.
