    What do you use on fabric parts of the car? I've got seat covers but they aren't the best so I tend to take them off and give the seats a clean with simple solutions spray to get rid of the lingering dog smell (this lasts about a day before it smells like dog again haha!) it's great stuff but very expensive, can anyone recommend a place I can buy more cheaper, maybe in bulk? Or recommend something else? I've been looking online but recommendations are best

    One of those sticky rolls on hard plastic handle? Not sure what they are called. I think they are for clothes and scholl do them.
    I have had good results with these in past. Now I have dog cover on back seats

    lint roller....Or you can take some duct tape and connect it in a circle with the sticky side out and away you go.

    I know there is a spray out there that works wonders. Many years ago when I worked in the automotive business there was a spray that you could use that got rid of all smells. We had a swamp recovery and even after a full cleaning it was enough to make you fall over on a hot day. We used this stuff and the stench was gone and never came back. It smells like oranges. What you do is spray some in the car and then start it and turn the heat on. Then you spray it through the vent from the outside. I know it works wonders. One place to check is with businesses that professionally clean cars they may be able to point you in the right direction or even sell you some.

    Masking tape lifts dog hair from upholstery and carpets quite efficiently. It works far better than a lint roller.

    True. But I'm not comfortable buying duct tape anymore.

    Well, to be quite open and honest about it, it's the locals who aren't really comfortable.

    If I ask for a roll, they think I'm putting together another murder kit.:Meh

    I use my zoom groom on my stairs and furniture, not the spikey bit but the flat bit. Raises the hair well for the hoover to pick everything off easy.

    I presume it would work in the car too...but it's not my domain!
