We love our pets (adore them in fact) - they bring us joy, hilarity, and affection every single day, and they’re always happy to see us - even if we’ve only been gone for five minutes.

The one thing we don't love, in fact, is finding their hair everywhere: all over the carpets, on sofas, on clothes, on bedding and, (argh) in our mouths.

Pet hair gets everywhere, even into places and rooms that our pet has never visited (we think...), it exacerbates any allergies and can generally make homes feel unclean.

Unsurprisingly then, the pet-owners of the world have gone mad for a genius hair remover, sending it viral on video-sharing app TikTok.

Described as “voodoo” magic in the video using the gadget on a chair to remove her cat’s hairs, TikToker Julie Ernst shows just what her pet hair roller can do. The clip has been viewed millions of times and has over 700,000 likes. 

A second video from another user supports Julie’s insistence that the remover is a must-have item for pet owners.

Sarayah Politi bought a pet hair roller after watching the initial video, and documents her first go using the product.

After rolling it across her pillow she opens the lid, which now conceals a huge amount of pet hair.

While the Chom Chom brand used by the TikToker isn't available in the UK, there are plenty of similar pet hair rollers on Amazon that will give you the same result. So we scrolled through and found the best-rated product. 

While you can get rollers for as low as £4.99, we've found one that has thousands of five star reviews and is still under a tenner. 

Why we rate it: 

The Mudeela Reusable Pet Hair Remover Roller has already racked up over 4,000 glowing reviews.

It explains that holding the fur roller, rolling back and forth on the surface, all the hair is collected in the dustbin. Press the button to remove all pet hair from the bin. Then you can use it again.

With this reusable pet hair lint roller, there’s no need to replace batteries, cartridges, tape or refills, you simply empty the compartment and go again.

Better still, it's on sale, and even more affordable as it now costs £9.76.

What the reviews say

The Mudeela Reusable Pet Hair Remover Roller has not only attracted thousands of positive reviews, but has received an average rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars from shoppers.

One user titled their review “life-changing” and admitted they were "shocked" by the results as the roller cleans their home so thoroughly.

A separate buyer has insisted it has "revolutionised my life" and cuts cleaning, while a third shopper hailed it "absolutely magical".
