I tried a lint roller and duct tape and nothing is getting it out. Its embedded in the seats. Anyone know of a better way to get the hair out besides picking it out strand by strand? :(
Thanks in advance.

I've got the same problem in my wifes '03 NB. Static electricity make the dog hair stick to seats and carpet. I use carpet fresh, vacuum smelly stuff powder made to eliminate pet odors. Arm & Hammer makes it I think. Yellow box with a dog on it. It breaks the static connection and makes it easier to vacuum up. By the same theory you could rub it with a drier shet the vacuum. Or the thing I recommended to HoneyBunny, "Keep the damn dog out of the car".

I have a black and tan German Shepherd....only been in the bug 2 times when I had to take her to the groomers...and on black neoprene seat covers, you see EVERY HAIR and piece of dirt....only thing I know that has helped is the power vac at the car wash and a sticky tape lint roller...dog now rides either in my wife's Grand Vitara, or the work van....no more bug for her:mad:

when i bought my beetle, the previous owner had her cats in there a few times. i used masking tape wrapped around my hand and it worked pretty well. i had to use a lot of tape though. and when you're doing it...press down and wipe. it'll work.

good luck!

I tried that and it was still sticking like crazy. I think because the dog hair is more coarse than cat hair. You could actually see where the hair was stuck in the seat..you could see the white of the hair then a thin black line that was part of the seat. When I went to the car wash on sat they got 95% of it out...thank goodness!
Thanks for the tip woman!
