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 do not love about our pets though is finding their hair everywhere: all over the carpets, on sofas, on clothes and, let’s be honest, in our mouths.
It gets everywhere, even into places and rooms that our pet has never forayed into (we think...) and it exacerbates our allergies and can generally make our 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, the Chom Chom hair remover shows user, Julie Ernst using the gadget on a chair to remove her cat’s hairs.
While using the product, Julie tells viewers, “you should definitely get one.”
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, and exclaims: “wow”.
And the craze has spread across America and the UK like wildfire:
IF YOU HAVE A PET THAT SHEDS GO ON AMAZON AND BUY A CHOM CHOM ROLLER. Yes, TikTok made me buy it but it is SOO worth it. 10/10

But, how do you use it?
The website 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 start again.

One user titled their review “life-changing! Not even being dramatic” and went on to explain: “ have been struggling with dog hair on furniture and clothes for what seems like forever. I bought this lint roller off of amazon yesterday and it’s incredible. We run a pretty tight ship and hoover and squeegee religiously so I’m shocked honestly [at what came off our furniture].”
The power of social media strikes again!
