Hair Removal from the Vacuum Beater Bar

This post may seem a bit unusual to some. My goal with this blog is to help my readers not only save money by using coupons and sale cycles, but to also share thing that have worked for me and my family.

Just last week I bought a new cordless vacuum for quick cleanup of stray crumbs and cat litter. With 2 kids and 3 cats, we certainly have an abundance of both. Before purchasing my new vacuum, I did my research. I read a ton of reviews before making my decision. By the end of the week, I was beginning to doubt my choice – my new vacuum wasn’t picking up debris as efficiently as it first did. I turned it over and discovered why…hair. There are three of us with long hair, and the beater bar was covered with hair.


My biggest challenge at this point was trying to remember where I put my Seam Ripper. If you haven’t tried it, I highly recommend it. A simple Seam Ripper (a $3 or $4 tool found at a fabric store or on Amazon) can save you a lot if time. ┬áPrior to owning a seam ripper, I would tug and pull and try to remove the hair any way possible.
