Default how to vacuum interior - cloth seats

Hello,
My new PT has cloth seats...I know I know
Does anyone have a sure fire way of vacuuming the seats?
Seems that the dog hair, and my daughter's 36" hair is becoming a permanent part of the fibers.
The seats are some kind of soft velvet stuff.
Thank you

I just use that high powered vacuum from those drive-in diy car wash places.

It gets most of my mothers 12" and gf's 10", shoulder length hair, off pretty well.

i agree, i usually go to a good self serve place at least once a week. my wife has long hair and i know how difficult it can be to get out (the seats in her neon are worse, like velcro, and the vacuums i use work great on her car). worst was my mother in law wearing a shirt with glitter (she is young at heart?), i still have glitter in the seat almost a year later. i am actually looking into seat covers, just cannot find any that i like at a good price. that may be a good idea for you, especially with a pet. have seen "blankets" for pets that cover the back seat (will try to remember the site), may help prevent any permanent damage.

Wrap your hand in duct tape, sticky side out and use that to pick up the hairs. It works very well. Just keep changing the tape when the stickiness runs out. [8)]

I like Nova's approach. This also works well with black dress pants.

A link roller also works. here is the best method I have found. Get your self some cheap disposal latex gloves, (the rubber ones) brush the seats and carpet with your hands in the gloves, it will remove 99% of all hair in your car. Gary

another way to remove pet hair is to use a damp wash cloth. the hair will ball up into an easily managed wad.
good luck,

I've used the latex glove method, it works but my hands end up burning like heck. Must be rubbing too hard. I'll give Redrum's method a trying this weekend. Nice tips. Thanks to all here and on other postings.[?]
