Normally I hate cleaning (as we have all witnessed from my cookie pans) but I love my Norwex dry mop. I probably wouldn't love it as much if I didn't have two walking fur ball generators, but I'm sure I would like it a lot. I have a whole house full of hardwood that provides a stunning back drop for dog hair. Cooper is the primary culprit. Before we got him, Curly would generate a moderate dust bunny every week.
Cooper, on the other hand, lays a carpet of fur DAILY. People ask me how I keep him so white. EASY! He sheds out all of the dirt. It's as if that tiny spec of dirt is too heavy for his delicate hair follicles and the hair is torn from his body upon contact. So Norwex dry mop to the rescue. Before getting this little beauty I would lug the good old hoover up from the basement but now I can do a daily quick sweep (alright - maybe not daily) and tuck the Norwex behind the door again. Sometimes I even shake out the hair afterward! What I really like about it is there are no disposable cloths involved. Just shake the removable mop head outside in the flower garden, vacuum and wash once in a while and you are good for another sweep. In theory, dog hair in the garden is supposed to deter rabbits from eating your plants. I don't believe our neighbourhood rabbit has heard of that theory before. In fact, I'm pretty sure he has collected a nest of Cooper fur and is now ready for winter. NICE!
I used to think Cooper's shedding was because he was so skinny and stressed when we first got him. It was much worse then but he continues his daily molting despite the good food and extra dose of essential fatty acid oils to keep his skin and coat healthy. It's much better now but he is a shedder. So I have succumb to a life of dog hair. I groom him when I remember. I no longer freak out when I see a layer of it on my sofa. And I have learned to do a quick tape sweep of my clothes before heading out the door.
Check out the Norwex stuff. Lots of great environmentally friendly and efficient ways to clean. Another alternative I suppose is wear fuzzy socks around the house and drag my feet but I find the quick sweep a more acceptable form of cleaning.
