Pet hair is a nuisance. 

It sticks to everything, whether it be your clothes, your carpet, or the floor. 

If you have found yourself wishing for a way to remove the pet hair from your carpet and not have to buy a new one, then you’re in luck! Baking soda can help eliminate the pet hair that has accumulated on your carpet and can do so quickly.

In this article, I’ll explain to you how easy it is to clean pet hair from your carpet by using a vacuum cleaner and some baking soda.

Let’s start.

What You’ll Need:

  • baking soda
  • vacuum cleaner (with vacuum cleaner brush attachment)
  • broom


  1. Sprinkle the baking soda over your carpet until the entire area is covered. Let the baking soda sit for 5-10 minutes so that it can absorb moisture from the air and pet hair from your carpet.
  2. Vacuum up the baking soda and pet hair from your carpet, as usual, making sure to get as much of it as possible. Repeat if necessary until there is no more pet hair on your carpet.
  3. Use the broom to sweep any baking soda and pet hair left on the floor.
  4. Give yourself a pat on the back because you just saved money and time by using a simple (and cheap) ingredient to clean pet hair from your carpet!

Why Use Baking Soda to Remove Pet Hair From Your Carpet?

  • It’s natural and non-toxic.
  • It’s easy to use. You just sprinkle some.
  • It not only cleans but also deodorizes.
  • It’s cheap and convenient.
  • It works really well.

Baking Soda Is Safe for Pets

Baking soda is also safe to use around pets. You don’t have to worry about them becoming sick if they eat it, and it won’t harm their paws or fur if they walk through it.

However, it can cause problems when they ingest a large amount of baking soda. So it’s best to keep the baking soda away from our furry friends.


Pet hair removal can be a difficult task. Baking soda can help to remove all the pet hair but would require a little time and effort. However, this is an easy process, and you will find it much easier to remove all the pet hair on your carpet using it in tandem with the vacuum cleaner.
