We love our furry friends, but the struggle is real when it comes to pet hair taking over the home. De-fuzzing couches, pillows and beds can feel like an endless chore for pet owners, but the ChomChom roller ($25) could be the game-changing solution you’ve been looking for.

The reusable (and eco-friendly!) non-adhesive roller removes pet hair from any surface — and according to Chewy reviewers, it’s the best $25 you’ll spend.

It works by pulling those deeply embedded hairs from your clothes and upholstery and scraping them back into a chamber that can be emptied out, so you can repeat the process all over again. Since there’s zero need for batteries, sticky paper or refills of any sort, the tool is reusable for months and possibly even years.

“Holy grail of fur removers,” raved a 5-star reviewer. “This product is amazing. Where has it been all of my life? It is excellent on my comforters and couches, as well as rugs. It works better than any sticky roll. I highly, highly recommend this. You will not be disappointed.”

Another explained: “Used it on our area rugs and throw rugs, holy smokes! There was so much fur we could not see! I was impressed and grossed out all at the same time! I definitely recommend this to people. I have not tried it on clothes yet so I am not sure how it will work on them but I am impressed with what I have used it on so far. No more going through sticky rolls like crazy!!!”

How it works

The key is to use a back-and-forth motion so that the hair is scooped up and deposited in the dustbin,” explained a reviewer. “I've gotten an alarming amount of hair off of my furniture and my 9 y.o. son loves using it.”

Explained another: “I use it on my bed and couch since my dog lays with me on the couch and a sleeps in bed with me. It does not make a full rotation around like a typical lint roller. You have to use back-and-forth or up-and-down motions.”

It’s a time-saver

Forget spending hours using a vacuum, lint roller or adhesives only to be disappointed with the results. Users say the ChomChom roller not only gets the job done — it’s also a time-saving miracle.

“I’m telling you this thing is the best and I’m so excited about it that I’m telling everyone who owns a cat,” wrote a reviewer who ditched tape for this time-saving gadget. “I’ve been fighting cat hair and the only thing that worked before was making tape loops out of UPS tape. Strong & sticky! But what a waste. I’ve bought so many rolls of tape. No more. Seriously. I went to my neighbors across the street and did her couch and she bought one right away. I did our cat tree - I’m telling you I got enough cat hair off that thing that I could use the hair and weave myself another cat!”

Another happily surprised buyer explained: “I have a long hair Maine Coon. Cat hair is everywhere. I took a chance on this and it works beautifully. I bought a second one so I would have one on each floor. LOVE this product. Easy to use. All the hair collects in the chamber and you just empty it.”

It works better than a vacuum

It’s a well-known fact that Fido isn’t a fan of the noisy vacuum — neither are humans. With the ChomChom roller, you’ll get a quick and effective clean-up that rivals the bulky machine.

“I was skeptical because it's not a vacuum but it works incredibly well! Not loud like a vacuum which is a plus and actually gets the hairs that are stuck within fabric. Although the thought process and tech are simple, this device was very well designed to remove hair from bed sheets, couches, etc.” wrote one fan.

Added another: “Had another pet-hair remover with self-cleaning. But, it was hard to clean, and the handle broke after a month. This one is so easy to self-clean. Does an awesome job.”

It makes upholstered furniture fresh again: “It’s a winner.”

Pet hair can have a dulling effect on fabrics and furniture, but this roller can make those feel new again, according to happy customers.

“I had my doubts that this would live up to my expectations but it really works,” wrote one buyer. “It picks up 90 percent of the black dog hair off of my white comforter in less than two minutes. I just roll it back and forth and I’m done. I wouldn’t hesitate to repurchase. This thing is a game changer!”

Another wrote: “The ChomChom Roller is great on large expanses of fabric. Our cat sleeps on a large ottoman on our porch. Just a few sweeps of the roller get all the fur (and there's a lot of it). Works well on rugs and bedding too. And clean-up is simple: just pop the lid and scoop the fur out of the collection area. This tool is not cheap, but it really delivers with performance.”

“I loved this so much I purchased a couple more for dog friends for Christmas presents. It's a winner!!!!” wrote another enthusiastic fan.

Bottom line: It’s the best $25 you’ll spend

“This is a wonderful, wonderful invention. I just received it and tried it immediately. It is what we all need if we are bothered by pet hair,” raved one reviewer. “It gets it up easy and quickly. Willy’s bed (black Lab) is finally looking brown instead of ‘furry black’. I love this invention. Get it. It will pay for itself in many ways-especially in doing away with hairy mess stress.”
