Need help from the pet lovers.
DH and I have 2 large dogs ( mastiffs) and 2 cats that shed A TON! The dogs don’t go on our couch but our 1 dog will lay on our bed because he loves to look out the window and watch for us to come home. We have tried to stop him of this but he does it anyways. With that our bedding was shot due to all the hair from him and the cats and the floating air in the room from all of the pets. We have gone through 3 comforters. We wash and wash them and they are clean for a day then get tons of hair again. We cover the bed with a sheet which is COVERED in dog hair by the end of the week. It helps a little but our bedding still collects tons of hair.
I just ordered a brand new and I am deteremined to keep it clean and nice. Anyone have any suggestions for this and what they do with their furry friends?

close the bedroom door when you leave for work?

To cut down on wear from washing, I sometimes just throw blankets or whatever in the dryer. Pulls the haif off into lint trap and saves items from having to washed more than really needed.

I would highly reccomend investing in a nice duvet – like a down/down alternative plain white comforter and then buying duvet covers for it. They are easy to switch out, smaller and easier to wash (not to mention being WAY cheaper than buying a new comforter). We have 3 dogs and 2 cats and I love being able to just switch out the covers of the comforter and throw them in the washer. I know oversized comforters are difficult to wash in regular sized appliances, so it solves that problem, too. You can even get a heavier duvet for winter and go lighter in the summer – overstock has a TON of duvets and duvet covers, I’d look there.
Other than that, maybe just keep your pets out of your room when you aren’t in it? We have a baby gate with a door that keeps the dogs out, but allows the cats to reach their food/litterboxes, which are in our master bath.
