View Full Version : Removing bunny fur from clothes?

I know they sell those sticky things and other tools but none really are effective enough...? [emoji38]

Apricot is one of those snuggly, cuddle buns - she climbs onto you for snuggles and closes her eyes and teeth chatters when you hold her and stroke her. However she's moulting so so much rn, just holding her the air gets filled with flying fur floating everywhere - it's crazy - so my black hoodie is smothered in white bunny fur and I'm not sure how to get it off, anyone have any useful ways? Or products they find help? Don't think I've ever been this covered in fur before [emoji38]

Thanks :D

Yup - this. Great suggestion Jane. Wrap a few winds round your four fingers then just dab away at the clothes. Tends to work.

Sellotape too fiddly and doesn't cover enough area.

I use this brush to get pet hair off their blankets before washing :)

My Dad used to have one of those brushes for his suit, just make sure you brush it in the right direction, otherwise you add to the fluff on your clothes! I find stroking a slightly damp hand can help lift fur bits and when all else fails I just hoover myself.

I use sticky rollers but when they are moulting badly I get through a lot of the rolls! I even had to take it to the vets with me last time I took Cookie! I also use a damp hand and wipe it over the clothes while I'm still wearing them which I hope the neighbours don't see me doing through the window :lol:

I fully recommend the Ikea lint roller if you have one near you!

The rolls last ages and are the best ones I've tried by far.

Refills are £1.75 for a pack of 4 too.

Parcel tape. But I still have clothes that are too full of hair to wear, and it's been a couple of years since I had rabbits.

Iíve had al sorts of lint rollers, brushes and stuff. The best thing Iíve found is sellotape! Frosty has really quite short but densely packed fur and when he is moulting it flys everywhere!

We have a silicone spiky glove thing for grooming out boys (who are wriggly and do not like being petted!) and its just as good on buns as it is on clothes/the sofa afterwards. Make sure to brush yourself in the same direction you were brushing the bun and the fur combs right off. I then finish with a sticky roller.

my method: wet your hand and brush the clothing with it in 1 direction. the hairs roll up into a bundle.

Doesnít everyone hoover themselves?:oops::shock:

I do!

I usually hoover myself to get the worst off, then use a lint roller - I have a load of them as I use them in nail stamping so there's always one by my nail desk.

I also tend to wear my bunny apron when I do stuff such as brushing and nail clipping and that limits most of it from getting to my clothes. I just don't pick them up the rest of the time cos of the fur :lol: The joys of two super furry bunnies!

Doesnít everyone hoover themselves?:oops::shock:I certainly have, post lying on carpet with Lopsy! My black hoodie got covered and it's never really ALL come off...! I now even find rabbit fur at my parents' house :lol: Lint rollers work fine for the amount I get nowadays, but a combination of hoovering and tape or rollers should work better for you, Graciee!

Wet hands gets it off.

When I had my white fluffy lionhead I kept my work clothes downstairs where we hung our coats, and I would dress downstairs right before I left the house, as far away from the bunny bedroom as I could get :lol:
