Hi all,

I have guineadad fleece but every time I wash it a lot of hair remains on it that I like to remove. I have bought a plastic curry comb but it doesn’t seem to be doing the trick. Would a metal one be better?

Thank you

I’m not sure what would work. But I’d advise using a horse wash bag. The hair generally collects in that and you can throw it away. It also protects your washing machine.

Hi! I have a guinea dad fleece too. My advice would be to vacuum the fleece before you put it in the wash to try and get all the hair off or most of it off if you can. But if it still doesn't work I would recommend to wash it in a horse wash bag. (Sorry if I have been mistaken and you have already tried vacuuming them before the go in the wash) :)

I vacuum it using the Bissell Pet Eraser handheld (corded! - very important) vacuum and it's been pretty good at taking a lot of it off (even my Peruvian)

Link to vacuum!
