REVIEW – This is my pooch. Her name is Lani, and she can be hairy. And that is a Lilly Brush Mini Pet Hair Detailer. It’s designed to remove said hairs from couches, fabrics, and whatnot. Lani vs. Lilly. Epic hair battle. Who wins? To the review!
What is it?
It’s a pet hair remover, used to remove stubborn trapped fur from carpets and fabrics.
Design and features
I do love me a simple, functional, well-designed gadget. The Lilly Brush Mini Pet Hair Detailer fits that bill perfectly. It’s basically a squeegee for fabric to remove stubborn pet hair from your fabrics.
The design is deceptively clever. You’ve got a solid plastic center with a raised edge for easy gripping. A thick rubber ring surrounds the center that’s used to “squeegee” the hair away from the fabric. You’ve got flat edges, round edges, and corners in order to get he brush into any odd space you’re trying to get to.
Here’s a side view of the brush. Check out the burly plastic and thick rubber. This thing is built to last pretty much forever.
When you want to clean a surface, you simply pull the brush across the surface. The grip design makes it very easy to handle and maneuver. Check out the difference between the area I cleaned on my couch (right) and the uncleaned area (left).
As you full the brush across the surface, you’ll start to see those hairs pile up at the edge of the area you are working. It was a little hard to pick up on my couch fabric, so I did a test on one my pooch’s favorite blankets on my son’s bed. Check out the hair collecting in the black square.
A little work back and forth with the brush, and you’ll see those deep-ground hairs piling up…
… and here’s the final result. Note that it did not get up every single hair, but I could get ’em with a bot more work.
Here’s another example on a different blanket (my spoiled doggo has lots of blankets in her collection). This one surprised me, as it pulled up hairs that I didn’t even see until I started using this thing!
At the end of the test, it was clearly Lilly that defeated Lani for the battle over the hair. This little brush did the job across several surfaces. We’re out of major shedding season at this point in the Spring, but I am looking forward to testing more once we get into the fall. We’ll see who wins round two!
It looks like Lilly makes a larger version of this device which I would recommend if you have big surfaces to clean. This little guy is useful for small surfaces like a couch cushion, but it would keep you busy all day on a larger area. For small spaces, however, it’s great!
What I like
- Simple, comfortable design.
- Built to last forever.
- Easy to use.
What needs to be improved
- Small size will be a workout if you’re cleaning larger surfaces.
I really like the Lilly Brush Mini Pet Hair Detailer for exactly what it is: a simple, well-built device that does a single thing well. If you have super hairy doggos, you’ll probably need to attack the surfaces with a vacuum first and use this to get the stubborn stuff out. For my dog it’s perfect.
