#465 – Dander

Some people like to use those sticky roller things to remove pet hair. I’ve always preferred a lint brush. I have one that my mom used to use when I was a kid. They apparently last forever. The sticky roller gets used up really quick and always seems to fail on the day of your job interview.

Book 2 has been sent to my editor! We’re almost ready to go to print. If you want to get in during the pre-order, get your order in now. The pre-order phase will close soon.

    House-cleaning week?

    Me, I like a simple dustbuster for most lint & hair removal. Really stubborn lint can be removed with a piece of duct tape wrapped sticky-side out around your palm. Beats a lint brush all to heck.

  2. PsychoDuck says:

    House-Cleaning Week sounds plausible, MaskedMan. Fire Week would be amazing, though 🙂

    And man, with all the pet hair in my house, sometimes I think a flamethrower may be the only solution. Five cats can coat a house with fur in no time flat…

    The Duck Has Spoken.

    The only thing i have to worry around here is dust.
    Problem is, the dust never seem to stay away for long -_-

    I hope the flamethrower works on dust =p

    pet hare can indeed be removed from any upholstered surface and so can can the pet the upholstery and the suface itself all in one go.

  5. Bunnyman says:

    Hey. I happen to like that sticky roller. Always works for me. ‘Course I tend to just use the back of one of the sticky things for notes and such in the absence of tape.

  6. Yeah I guess that would solve any furniture problems you might have as well.

  7. MaskedMan says:

    When is it NOT flame week at Biff’s place, PsychoDuck? Heh!

    Maybe it could be “Handy Hints Week,” though? Hmmm. It’s spring… Spring cleaning. I’m going to stick with House-Cleaning Week.

    I want to know how so much dust can exsist in one place? It seems an impossibility. I want a way to make the dust attatch to one thing that I can just clean off outside.

    I was at a LAN party once and a guys computer died because of too much dust. Something shorted out on his motherboard.

  9. Chivalrybean says:

    Dangit Biff/Chris, you outbid my Project Wonderful ad on Sheldon Comics!

    It’s all good though {;0)

  10. Jackson says:

    Haha. Nice one.

    Burninating the living room, burninating the pet hair…

  11. Trip Hazard says:

    1) Ewww…burnt hair smell.

    2) Gross you out: household dust is mostly dead skin cells. Look it up, it’s TRUE! That’s you, all over the place! (Bleecchh!)

  12. McMustard says:

    Even better than the everlasting lint brush, at least for clothing, is the lint mitt. Like the brush, it lasts indefinitely, and it covers area faster than the brush. Especially good for clothes.

  13. Seraphine says:

    ewww but the smell! I hate burned hair.

  14. Josh says:

    My family has this really rubbery sponge-looking thing. It works pretty well, but it feels weird in your hands.

  15. Rystar says:

    Is it me, or Biff is a little thicker than before?

  16. R.A. says:

    Our dog died last summer/spring-ish and I’ve been at college since mid-August, and I’m still finding random dog hairs in my stuff. I don’t think dog hair every really goes away.

    Though the smell of burning hair is repulsive, watching hair burn is pretty neat. I used to have candles in my room back home and occasionally if I found a random hair someplace, I’d stick it near a flame and watch it burn.

  17. speearr says:

    I think you can also remove any upholstered surface with that!

  18. Gobbledegook says:

    Hah! This just proves my theory that a flame-thrower can solve ANY problem. I’m gonna get a few of my friends to read this… they just keep calling it “Arson”… *grumble,grumble*

    Seriously, though… fire week would be bad-a$$.

  19. Knight Blazer says:

    Voila, the Biff Flamethrower! Able to easily remove pet hair from any surface in your home! Observe. (Proceeds to douse the living room couch with napalm.) See, pet hair gone! Get yours now at biff.com! Now, if you’ll excuse me… (Runs over to the couch and beats out the flames with two hammers)

  20. Knight Of Darkness says:

    @ Jackson : Nice one :P.
    House cleaning week seems probable…

  21. JSW says:

    I imagine Biff can also get rid of those pesky cobwebs in his house as well…

  22. Reynard says:

    @ JSW: …and get rid of that pesky ol’ house with ’em! (Whee!!! No more property taxes!)

  23. the Scarf says:

    My piano teacher has five cats and a collie, the collie sheds the most…The solution? Collie colored carpets!

  24. Foxfire says:

    Collie colored carpets indeed. We have two dogs, and now a stray cat that we adopted. (stinker got into the warehouse where I work and was setting off the alarm. Caught her and took her home and had planned on taking her to the humane socienty acter christmas, but parents decided to keep her), and….well, clothes make the BEST lint roller….and leather couches. Hair doesn’t stick to those. Apparently hair LOVES hardwood floors though, since I every time I sweep it I swear I get enough hair for 3 dogs. -_-

  25. Reg says:

    I can think of a lot more things to get rid of than pet hair with a flamethrower…

  26. Psymon says:

    ^You can get rid of unwanted pests. . .or guests. . .

  27. Pancho says:

    Chris, my mom probably has the same lint brush. Red surface with the yellow handle? Every once in a while on a visit, I’ll catch a glimpse of it and have a childhood flashback.

  28. Shana says:

    My grandfather cleaned all of our lint brushes to the point they couldn’t pick anything up ever again…

  29. Miles says:

    Oh wow Pancho, is that what that thing was? I never knew before…

  30. Kyle says:

    His grip on the nossle is very dangerous looking, and the fact that its metal means its a good conductor but biff does not mind

  31. BrainpanSonata says:

    I use a vacuum cleaner with the turbo brush attachment. Gets up all the pet hair AND scares the pets away so they don’t do it again.
