    .............what works for you?
    especially on the "fur magnet" seat backs of the Nissan Pathfinder R51s?
    the fur almost seems to "weave" itself into the fibers of the upholstery, which is a material similar in texture & feel of outdoor carpeting.
    ..........very tedious & frustrating to deal with.

    Can you get the beater/roller brush attachment out to your vehicle? I feel your pain with my shepherd and lab. They do mak these rubber nibbled brushes like what you would use for combing them that can also grab the hair.

    Look up chemicalguys rubber brush for example.

    thanks!
    what is a beater/roller brush attachment?
    I've tried the rubber nibbled brushes, brushing by hand wearing a rubber glove, sprayed a light mist of diluted fabric softener with the rubber gloves, several different shop vaccums, roller lint removers, duct tape, clear packaging tape.............

    LOL!
    it would seem so
    she is a cattle dog/corgi mix, but it's not the fur as much as the material that the seat backs are made with
    the fur vacuums right off of the seat upholstery and floor carpeting, BUT THOSE SEAT BACKS!!!!! :frantic:

    I find 5l or a gallon of petrol/gasoline to be the only effective way to get rid of dog hair from your car upholstery. Pour it liberally all over the interior then follow up with a lit match. Stand well back, the smell of burning hair can make you nauseous. On a more serious note the only thing I've seen work is a full shampoo of the upholstery. That or get a leather interior.

    A pumice stone works real well to get the hair off the seats and caroling with a vacuum to suck yo the piles you get with the pumice stone.

    I have had good success with those red lint brushes - the ones with one-directional bristles. You brush in one direction and they grab hair and lint. When you rub your hand across them in the other direction, the collected fibers come off.

    Sometimes you just can't get it out. At least not well enough to fool me. I have used the beater bar brush upholstery attachment on a canister vacuum to do a pretty good job but I still saw hair that was woven into the upholstery. Eventually, i only bought leather seats and used a seat cover.

    The power head on the vacuum with electric roller is what I was thinking of.

    the turbine mechanical attachment (officially the "Tangle-Free Turbine Tool") for my Dyson Animal works wonders.

    We've had good luck with those peel off sticky lint rollers (same as using tape, I know) if the vacuum cleaner doesn't get enough.

    I gave up, pulled all carpet (replaced with truck bed liner) and put in neoprene seat covers on.

    Best solution ive found

    My dog(s) over the years. Although, right now, I only have one, I buy cars with leather interiors only. You CAN NOT get dog fur out of cloth seats.

    I have a Siberian Husky, whose favorite thing in the world is car rides.

    Leather seats. Only option.
