Pruven™ Products in General FAQs
How are Pruven™ pet products better than other pet hair removal products?

Pruven™ pet hair remover products are specially designed to grip and trap pet hair.

  • The Pruven™ Pet Hair Roller is the only lint roller made with Scotch™ Brand adhesive. It offers the right amount of adhesive, making it easier to keep your clothes lint, hair and fuzz-free. Plus the ergonomic handle is comfortable to use.
Can I use the Pruven™ Pet Hair Remover Tool to remove both cat and dog hair?

Yes, Pruven™ Pet Hair Remover Tools are designed to help remove all types of cat and dog hair.
Pruven™ Pet Hair Roller FAQs
How do I insert Pruven™ Pet Hair Roller Refills on the handle?

The Pruven™ Pet Hair Lint Roller Refill is made to easily slide over the Pruven Pet Hair Roller handle. When you use the last adhesive sheet, you are ready to slide the new refill onto the handle!

Can I reuse my Pet Hair Roller handle?

Yes, the lint roller handle can be reused. Once the lint roller sheets are used up, simply slide a new refill roll onto the handle. If you have a need to toss the handle, it is recyclable in most areas. Check with your local recycler to confirm.

Why are the sheets hard to tear?

The sheets are perforated in a progressive format, which allows us to guarantee they will tear cleanly every time.
Pruven™ Pet Hair Remover Tool (Upholstery) FAQs
Will the product damage my upholstery?

When used appropriately (and according to directions), this tool will not damage most fabric upholstery. We recommend that you test first on all fabrics in an inconspicuous area to ensure no fabric damage prior to use. Not recommended for use on non-fabric surfaces.

Can I use it on my clothing?

The Pruven™ Pet Hair Remover Tool is not recommended for use on clothing. Instead, try the Pruven™ Pet Hair Roller for quick clean up of pet hair from clothing and other fabrics. The adhesive is optimal for pet hair removal without fabric damage.

Can I reuse the refill sheets?

Each sheet is meant to be used to its fullest extent only once, and then tossed in the garbage – disposing not just the pet hair, but also dander that may cause allergic reactions.

What if I get pet hair in the bottom surface of the handle?

This will not affect the performance of the product. However, most of the hair can be removed with a lint roller by rolling back-and-forth. To avoid in the future, align sheet along edge on bottom of tool and wrap the sheet around the tool covering the entire white surface.

Can I use the Upholstery product in my car too?

Yes, the Pruven™ Pet Hair Remover Tool and sheets can be used on the cloth interior of a car.
