I finally found a great way to get rid of animal hair on cab carpets. We had an outside gig the other day and my cabinet was covered with cat and dog hair and really trashy looking. I was working on the carpet with a soft brush, picking out the hair that the brush didn't get (most of it), and complaining all the while. My wife noticed what I was doing and suggested something that she read about in some magazine...it works like a charm! Get a pair of those big rubber gloves that are used around the house to do cleaning, scrubbing, etc. They're usually yellow for some reason. Anyway, put one on, rub the cabinet, and the hair comes off! It doesn't harm the carpet in the least, and it's quick, easy, and just about 100 percent effective.
