    Just out of curiosity, having 3 dogs pretty much my house is one big hair ball lol, I hoover alot and I don't really mind, the only thing that gets me down is, things like I brought a reeeeally nice cardigan from zara (black) and it comes out of the wash with dog hair all over it, even though I wipe out the washing machine.

    So anyway cut a long story short, I have brought a pack of these lint balls, apparently they pick up the dog hair in the wash! has anyone else used them?

    Hi Guys, sorry its taken so long to reply, I've been testing them out!!

    I rcvd the balls. There was 12 in total, with no instructions of how many to use ect. So i put 2 in, definately not enought because it didn't really make a difference, I went the whole hog and put 12 in! Although not every hair was removed, it was ALOT better, and meant I didn't have spend ages with the sticky roller to get hairs off. 12 sounds alot but they are really small, like the size of well just over half an inch wide.

    They are also easy to get the hair off. All in all, I recommend them, they worked for me! :D
