Be Forever Furless with the Lilly Brush Pet Hair Remover

Written by Rachael Sando

Black Pants.

They don’t stand a chance in our home.

No matter how long I wait to put them on before leaving, they will collect an obvious golden weave before I even leave the door. Things don’t get any better in the car – where there seems to be an endless swirl of golden locks circulating throughout the cabin.

How on earth do I stay looking (remotely) presentable and professional? Well, the answer used to be sticky lint rollers….lots and lots of them. But I am thrilled to tell you that now we have a better (and more sustainable) solution…

The Be Forever Furless Brush – From Lilly Brush

The Be Forever Furless Brush is a unique brush designed to remove pet hair from all sorts of fabrics and materials. It has specially engineered nylon fibers to be delicate on fabrics and an ergonomic handle for ease of use. There is also a small channel between the rows of bristles which helps to collect and combine hair while brushing.

How to Use the Be Forever Furless Brush

The Be Forever Furless Brush can be used dry, but for best results they suggest the following:

  1. Dampen the bristles
  2. Shake off the excess water
  3. Rub briskly over fabric in a back and forth motion

To clean the Be Forever Furless Brush when you are done, wash with soap and water and run your fingers over the bristles to knock out any stuck-in hair.

Putting this Pet Hair Remover to the Test!

We decided to take the Be Forever Furless Brush all over the house to see how it worked on a variety of different fabrics. All of the following tests were performed with a dry brush…

Microfiber Couch

We are not the type of people to exclude our boys from the sofa – they are welcome just as any other family member or guest. Unfortunately, they do tend to leave a piece of themselves behind. The fabric of our couch is a tight microfiber weave that tends to really cling onto loose hairs.

We have tried several vacuums over the years on this couch, and no matter how much time we spend with the various attachments we are always a bit disappointed. We were very excited to see how this brush performed in comparison!

The answer? The Be Forever Furless brush works much better than anything else we have tried – and it takes no time at all! Just run the brush back and forth several times and virtually no hair is left behind. Notice how the hair collects and rolls up? This makes it super easy to pick off and move on to the next section. No wasted time spent struggling to untangle hairs out of these bristles!

One of our favorite features of the Be Forever Furless Brush is that it rolls up the hair into easy to remove pieces

I also love that the handle is offset from the surface of the brush. This gives you room to work and keeps your knuckles clear during use.

Woven Area Rug

Well, I must admit that this one is a bit gross!

We decided to give the Lilly Brush a try on our living room area rug since the golden boys spend so much of their time laying on it. Please keep in mind that we do vacuum this regularly and by all appearances it is kept clean! Just take a quick look at this before and after to get an idea of how well this brush works!

The answer? WOW! Look how much hair the Be Forever Furless brush picks up that our vacuum cleaner left behind! And watch just how fast it works!

I think we have added a new requirement to our cleaning routine!

How could there be any hair left ON the dog!

Black Dress Pants

Saving the most critical test for last! Let’s see how the Be Forever Furless Brush stands up to the golden hair on a pair of black slacks…

The answer? Very impressive! This test was performed with the travel sized brush to simulate a pre-work de-furring. In just a matter of seconds, all evidence was gone!

I like to keep the boys with me wherever I go, but I think I’ll stick to my Golden Retriever necklace!

One effective pet hair remover!

Why MyDogLikes the Be Forever Furless Brush from Lilly Brush

We love that this brush can be used again and again. Sticky lint rollers work well, but they require sheet after sheet to get the job done. We try to be as “green” as possible in our home and hate to create so much waste. The Be Forever Furless Brush is easy to use and easy to clean – making it perfect for daily use. We found that it can handle almost any situation when dry, but getting it damp takes its performance to the next level. Strange as it may sound, this brush works so well that is actually kind of fun to use!

We also love that it comes in a mini version which is great for the purse or the car. This is a pet hair remover that every dog owner needs, and it also makes for an excellent gift!

  • What a great product! It would be wonderful not going to work with a fluffy butt, lol

  • In all honesty, this would have been a fantastic find for me when our Big Guy was still around!! He left more fur around than you can even imagine…I think it was the Newfy in him! We are still pulling hair out of things…years later…and YES…we DO clean! Sounds like an awesome product!

  • I have 2 dogs, brother and sister, brother doesn’t shed at all but little sister leaves hair everywhere she goes. This would be great for furniture and clothes !

  • I needed the Furless Brush many times…..I was so embraced when I had dog hair all over my butt which I did not know until someone said to you own dogs….yes …their fur is all over your butt did you bring a lint roller with you if not you should carry one with you.

  • i dont really have any embarrassing stories because my 3 girls dont really shed much. They are miniature schnauzers. however, they do track in lots of things and i have ground in old hair in some of my carpets that is hard to get out. i have had jackets that will have some hair on them from me holding and kissing them before i leave the house or if i am wearing a dark color some hairs may appear.

  • This looks amazing! The best thing that I’ve found to take cat fur off of our sofa is a damp sponge and even that is a little time consuming. This looks quick and easy! I love that it gets the fur out of the carpet too. I wonder how much my vacuum leaves behind.

  • In the middle of a funeral, my mom leaned over and started swiping the hair off my butt and chest as I tried to smack her hands away. We looked like idiots, I’m sure. That’s the most embarrassing story I have. 🙂

  • I could use this when I waear my black pants. No matter how much I try, I always end up with dog hair on them.

  • I have 2 dogs and this would come in very handy to take away the hair around the house!!

  • Nothing embarrassing, as I love my dogs and hair is just a natural part of my furbabies. I would love to try the bush!

  • We have 4 dogs, 3 of them are Golden retrievers, 1 is a Pom. Everyday is a fur story. Why did we wear that is always the question of the day. As I type this, I have black sweat pants on asking myself the same question. I sure could use this. Actually I could use 3 of them, 1 for my house, and 1 for each vehicle we own

  • With 4 dogs and 2 cats, I could certainly use the help!! I have a lint roller in every room of the house and one in the car. 🙂 Black pants are a NO in our house. And so are good fleece blankets. The dog hair sticks to them like crazy.

  • I hate it when my skirt or dark work pants are full of fur…I travel on the subway and standing with all that fur is a bit embarrassing. =) Thank you for the chance!

  • I had someone over my house that was not a pet lover, at all. He was wearing black corduroy pants. I always recommend that no one wear black pants when they come over because with 5 cats and 2 dogs, I just can’t keep up with all the hair. Long story short, when this person got up to leave I noticed that the whole back of his pants were covered in fur. I knew he was headed to his next appointment, but I never said anything. Maybe I would have lent him a Lilly brush if I had one, but maybe I wouldn’t have. I know I could use these.

  • Well, there is a bunch of dog hair on our basement couch that is hard to get off of right now, so i could really use this product to try and get some of that hair off.

  • I can’t think of one certain instance in particular, but there are a lot of times where I have had to use the rollers, which takes forever, and lots of sheets to get even sort of presentable. But the roller is the best working product we’ve tried up till now. This little guy, however, looks very promising!

  • I have 6 cats and 1 dog, and their hair gets everywhere!! Its embarrassing to have company over because their clothing gets animal hair on it and people get a bit upset.

  • the only times i’ve ever wished for some kind of pet hair removal brush has been when i’ve been dressed up (for church or a date) & had either cat hair or dog hair (or both) all over my clothes.

  • I wouldn’t say its embarrassing but I do have to clean the hair off the couch whenever we have company so they can sit down without getting hair on their clothes.

  • Does this really work? my german shepherd drops hair like crazy I’ve been meaning to try something like this out.

  • I was so embarrassed when some friends of our stopped by to get us to go to church. He had on a navy suits and after sitting down he had hair all over his back side. I could have used this then and now

  • I am always looking for new products to help control the pet hair that is everywhere. You are right about vacuums not getting all of the pet hair that remains on the couch so this product looks fantastic plus it would be great to use before leaving the house because half the time I am wearing enough pet hair to create a new pet.

  • Can’t say I have an embarrassing story but there are many times I get to my destination and realize I do have pieces of Sadie hair on me and I’m wishing I didn’t!

  • I have three long haired dachshunds. One is a silver and chocolate dapple and the other two are black and tan. It doesn’t matter what I wear because I have to deal with white and black hair! I’ve always had dog hair on my clothes. I consider it a part of me. However, these brushes would certainly help with clothing, cleaning furniture and car seats.

  • I don’t have any embarrassing stories about pet hair, but in our house it is everywhere!

  • not really embarrassing but we have dog hair everywhere. car clothes in the house.

  • I was dropping my daughter off for school and i saw she had a lot of pet hair on her pants. It didn’t brush off well.

  • I typically wear a lot of black and my dog is white needless to say I am always embarrassed about how much of his hair clings to my clothing.

  • I went to the gym and had black workout gear on. As I was on the treadmill, I noticed dog hair all over my pants. I’m sure everyone else did also as it was quite noticeable.

  • Everytime my dogs shed I have to throw my comforter in the dryer at least 3 times a week to get all of the hair off.And I have to vacuum at least twice a week or the carpet will look like a fur rug.

  • I don’t really have any embarrassing stories but this brush it will be really helpful here.

  • When we were moving, I had to sweep up all the dog hair from under our bed. I was so embarrassed when one of my friends saw the huge pile of dog hair!!!

  • I honestly don’t know what it’s like to not be covered in pet hair. lol It’s a good thing I am not a high powered executive or something!

  • In college, I lived in a house were the upstairs were our bedrooms, but the downstairs was “The Women’s Center” , where various programs and meetings were held. We had snuck in a cat at one point, and were very good about locking her in someone’s room whenever there was a function downstairs. One day, there was a meeting with the president of the college last minute, and we had to rush to hide the cat. We were all proud of ourselves… until the president stood up to leave, and we saw that the entire back of his suit was absolutely covered in cat fur.

  • I do not have any embarrassing stories. I am always covered in pet hair though. I have three cats and two dogs so I guess I have gotten used to it over the years. I also try to wear sweats around the house and right before leaving I put on dress clothes to avoid getting hair on them.

  • Nothing embarrassing but definitely a lot of hair everywhere in my home and on my clothes. My pup loves dragging out clothes and hoodies from the laundry basket and sleeping on them. Pain in my butt but he’s adorable 😛

  • yes when i went to the doctors once. i had cat hair all over me. didn’t realize it till i was already there. so embarrassing. i was covered with it

  • We were going out to dinner on a date which is rare for us. With 3 long haired dogs I always check clothes at least 3 times before going anywhere. I guess I was in a hurry because when we went to sit down at our table I took off my sweater and when I did a cloud of yellow dog hair filled the table around us.

    • Let us know what you think! I keep the travel brush in my car and use it almost every day!
