Gee, with 4 cats, who needs one of this more than I do lol! It’s a handheld sweeper made up of little rollers that you sweep back and forth across the couch to trap the hairs. The handle is the container for the hairs…you can actually see the hairs pile up! The unique thing about the Pledge Fabric Sweeper is that it is disposable. When you see that the container is full you just toss it. It’s easier to use than sticky sheets and less messy since you just toss it instead of cleaning it. Another big plus? It’s fun…now the kiddos ask to clean up the cat hair lol. :) The brushes are gentle on my furniture…so far I’ve only seen it collect hair and not wear down the fabric. Next time you go shopping pick one up and give it a try!
