pet hair removing machine

Get rid of pet fur stuck to clothes

I have seen hand held pet hair rollers. I was thinking of a big machine to do that. First, there is an infeed slot that has a neoporene covveyor roller to pull the article of clothing in. Then, the machine has two wide adhesive rollers that have replacable adhesive tape. One roller on top and one on the bottom like on a hydrolic press. After passing through the rollers, there is a 360 degree suction space that you hook up to a shopvac to remove loose vacuumable furs. After this, the t-shirt, pants, or whatever comes out of the outfeed slot sparkling clean without fur of any kind. The one problem is that you would have to replace the adhesive tape a lot. Other than that, it would be a great device to have.

       my cat has hair that is two tone black and white, on black shirts you see the white bit on white shirts you see the black bit, damn annoying.

       Welcome to the wonderful world that is cat. If you had a black-and-white shirt, the cat would shed ginger hair on it.

       Aw, c'mon, there's no way in hell this device would work. The rollers would stick to each other and that would be the end of it.   

       Even if you came up with some magic way of stopping that from happening, most clothes require two or three passes in several different directions to remove cat hairs.   

       Big, stinky fishbone.

       Didn't we once have an idea for 'giant lint rollers at the door' to do the same thing? Sort of a human car wash. Can't find it now. Anyway, it might be easier to get a pet-door vacuum.

       Big machine. Convenient to carry everywhere, I assume?

       the motor that drives the rollers is more powerful than the adhesive. 1/2 horsepower. They wont be stuck for long.

       get home, remove clothes. dress pets in close fitting all over clothes - those little babygrows would be nice. sorted!

       pmillerchip: Exactly.   

       One could just feed the cat into the machine. With a sufficently powerful motor (50kW) and and sufficiently small gap between the rollers (10 - 15 mm) the results would be entirely satisfactory.

       Carpet tape seems to work. Hope it doesn't wreck my aubusson rug. Glen.   

       P.S. Does anyone else have creative solutions that are cheap and require little time? Or tips on clipping your own cat? Cheers. Contact: saxtones@hotmail.com
