Spiffing Up for Christmas with Simple Solution's Pet Hair CleanUp System: GIVEAWAY!

WAFFLES:  Hey Boss! This is the stuff Glogirly's been using all over the Townhouse this week. She says she's getting rid of our CAT HAIR! I don't know... but I don't want to be BALD! She hasn't gotten rid of yours yet, has she? 

KATIE:  Don't be ridiculous, Waffles. She's not going to make you bald. 

WAFFLES:  Are you sure?  She's coming back in here, I think we should run.

KATIE:  She's just cleaning up after you. You know you leave a mess pretty much everywhere you go. On the floors, on the furniture. Don't even get me started on that crime scene you call a litter room.

Simple Solution's New Pet Hair CleanUp System
According to Glogirly, help arrived just in time. It's been a cleaning frenzy around here as she's been preparing for the holiday intruders houseguests. Apparently not everyone likes padding around the hardwood floors with a half pound of Waffles' fur stuck to the bottom of their socks. And then there's the blue chair. Sit in that thing and you'll walk away with a furry, orange butt. 

The Pet Hair CleanUp System makes cleaning up quick and easy. Glogirly says this handy system makes her look like TWICE the housekeeper she actually is. 

The Pet Hair CleanUp System includes 4 great products:
1.  Hair Lift Mitts
2.  Hair Release Spray
3.  Twin-Head Sweeper
4.  Sweeper Refill Pads

Hair Lift Mitts
The mitts come as a pair and have a grippy texture on the underside and around the fingers to grab hair from fabrics like upholstery and linen. They're great for collecting hair that's stuck between cushions and especially for grabbing hair that's wedged between the seat, sides and back of our velvet-upholstered chairs. They're so grippy, we think Glogirly just might be able to do handstands out in the snow wearing them. They're washable and reusable too.

Hair Release Spray
This is very ingenious! Just spray a fine mist to upholstery, drapes, bed skirts. Then wipe clean with a soft rag. Glogirly used it with a microfiber rag on the furry mess formerly known as the bed skirt in our guest room. It worked great and left a very mild, fresh scent.

Twin-Head Sweeper
When laid flat, it covers a really large area...about twice as big as other sweepers we've tried. The FurLock pads have little 'fingers' that grab and trap the pet hair. It holds onto all kinds of hair... even Glogirly's. Refills come six to a pack.

The sweeper itself is very easy to put together. The pole comes in two parts and fits together very snuggly. It screws into the cleaning head and is very easy to maneuver. Our only suggestion on the sweeper design would be to have a slightly longer pole for Glogirly. She's a little on the tall side. 

Baseboard Magic!
One of the sweeper heads flips up and locks at a 90 degree angle for a little baseboard cleaning magic. Even the little half-round trim at the floor fit perfectly into the indentation between the two sweeper heads. I guess Glogirly's got no excuse now!

What Do We Think?
Glogirly loved the Twin Head Sweeper. Over half the Townhouse floors are hardwood so she put it to the test. It's a super fast and easy way to clean the floors in-between more thorough mopping and really handy when prepping for guests. It removes pet hair we didn't even realize was there... among other things like dust and crumbs.

The mitts worked great on our velvet chair and ottoman. We found it's best to always wipe in the same direction and pull off the clumps of hair as you go...especially if you're covering a large area. Or cleaning up after Waffles.

The spray worked wonders on our guest room bedskirt. Waffles has blazed quite a trail underneath that bed and every time he zooms through, he leaves some fur behind. The bedskirt is microfiber so cat hair sticks to it like glue. As with the mitts, it works best to wipe in one direction and periodically clean off your rag.

All are reasonably priced and available at Target.
Twin-Head Sweeper: $14.99
Refill Pads: $5.99

It's a GIVEAWAY...
FIVE Winners PLUS Five Prizes for Shelters!

When we asked the people at Simple Solution if they'd like to help out some shelters with the giveaway, they loved the idea so much they said, "Let's have FIVE winners!" So 5 lucky GLOGIRLY readers will win the complete 4pc Pet Hair CleanUp System for themselves AND they'll each be able to select a shelter to receive a prize as well! Although the prizes can only ship to US and Canadian addresses and shelters, GLOGIRLY readers worldwide are invited to enter and gift their prizes to a US or Canadian friend and shelter if they win.

We love it when shelters win and think this is a wonderful way to close out the Santa Kitty Toy Hop week of giving!

We received our Pet Hair CleanUp System at no charge from Simple Solution. We also received a fee to cover the time it takes to photograph the products, write the blog post and administer the giveaway. Receiving the free product and the fee did not influence our article or anything we say.  All sponsored posts on GLOGIRLY will always reflect our honest opinions and feature products we use and love. 


  1. Our big problem spot is the furniture. Mom can't get the fur off the furniture no how!

  2. Oh these look like great things! The woman kinda wants one even though it would be more to move!

  3. Under the couch. OY! The dust bunnies that live under there are SCARY

  4. My human is nowhere near as diligent about our fur getting everywhere... and it shows!

  5. Easier cleaning might make cleaning happen more often! That would be lovely!

  6. Oh Wow yous two dat's purretty pawsum. Now dat weez hav ow faux wood floors mommy knows zackly what yous talkin; bout. There be fur everywhere. MOL Weez kuld fur sure use this. We also wanna say weez mighta boobooed on yous blog posty yesfurday, weez fawt we left a comment but da new captcha fingy has us a little confused, so ifin weez not had a comment weez sorry, we dud twy,

  7. I live in a 102 year old house with 4" baseboards! This would be perfect!

  8. Mum would love it ! Good luck to our US friends ! Purrs

  9. The hardest place to keep the fur under control is the living room. We took out the old, worn carpeting about a year ago and replaced the flooring in the living room and main hallway with bamboo (very "green" and looks amazing - it even stands up to five Treeing Walker Coonhounds and three cats). However, with 8 furbabies and one two-legged daughter with butt-length blonde hair, I swear I'm always having to clean up fur/hair.

  10. Love the baseboard feature! Love Dolly

  11. I would love to try those mitts on the kitty tree!!

  12. With 3 of us in the house, we really need this.

  13. Oh......My......Dog!!!! This would be PAW-FECT for me! With 3 huskies and 3 kitties, I am on a constant battle with fur! Especially my kitchen, because we spend a lot of time out there on the computer, and of course all of my pets are always in here with me. Plus I would love to be able to choose our local shelter to donate to!
    ღ Happy Howlidays! ღ frum our pack at Love is being owned by a husky!

  14. For some reason, our mom thinks we shed a lot. I think of it as spreading the love around!
    We'd love to win. Thanks for the opportunity!
    Yours sincerely,
    Margaret Thatcher

  15. The cat climbers and the floors are where I have the hardest time. 5 kitties shed lots. Thanks for the giveaway.
    Sue B

  16. Every house with kitties must have this! Our mom sure needs it!

  17. Awesome!!! Meowm really needs this. We are even getting tired of seeing our furs everywhere!

  18. That fur releasing spray looks like the most genius of all. Great products and Target is EASY for us to get to! Prices are reasonable too.

  19. Clothes are our biggest problem spot, along with furniture. Mom would like to try the hair release spray on dad's fleece jacket.

  20. We need anything that will pick up hair!

  21. Well, I'm not setting foot in a Target until well after the holidays, but I certainly do need the mitts and the spray. We had full length cream-colored drapes that are now full length black and grey drapes - including the valance - thanks to Julio. At the lower elevations, the drapes also have grey and white girl fur from Maude and Scarlett.

    At the shelter, we have a couple of diligent volunteers who, every now and then, move the kennel banks and clean underneath. I've only heard them scream a couple of times....So I'm entering to win them the sweeper.

  22. These products sound great..and just look at the awesome prices!

  23. Cat hair? What cat hair? Mommy only sweeps a couple of times a day! She would love something that really works!

  24. Our entire bottom floor is tile so we get some serious tumble-fur flying by!

  25. Hey! What's wrong with having an orange furry butt?
    Those products look great and look like they save a lot of time.

  26. This looks like a gift from the fairy cat.

  27. Oh, how I'd love to win this, my furbabies shed so much. And even if I don't win the prices are reasonable to get on our own.

  28. Our floors are all hardwood - this is a lot harder to keep clean than the carpet, which used to 'hide' the hair

  29. Oh Wow, this looks AWESOME! Specially the sweeper, that folds the head to clean the baseboards! How wonderful is that! With four long haired cats and a long haired dog...... That would come very handy for us!
    Happy Cat Family

  30. Oddly, it's the tile kitchen floor. I have wafting dust bunnies of cat hair sometimes. Leonardo is very fluffy.
    {in the contest I am Margot Core on the Rafflecopter}

  31. LOL! Can I say the cat? He doesn't like to be brushed. Other than that, yeah, probably everywhere but the tile floor is the one that is hardest for me to get. Love that baseboard method! Happy Holidays!

  32. The bathroom and the baseboards are the worst things for hair in my house

  33. That would be wonderful for our house! I need something to help lift the dog (Mazie) hair out of my couch and get the mazie dust bunnies out from under everything and out of the corners!

  34. I'm glad this is available at Target! That way if I'm not chosen a winner, I can still get it locally! :-D

  35. We'd love our mom to win this. She really hates it when her friends leave the house with fuzzy butts. And our entire house has hardwood floors. And to have the chance to give one to a shelter makes it a win/win. Ho, ho, ho, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  36. Seriously, dood. You and that crime scene? EPIC.

  37. Honestly, it gets everywhere! Even places the cats dont go on. In such a small apartment clhair and dust just seems to accumulate so much faster and reaches every corner, every level in the house.q

  38. My kitchen floor is where I have the hardest time cleaning up cat fur. It seems to want to fly around when I sweep or use a vacuum cleaner.
