Is there such a thing?

I have mostly laminate floors and cats. I sweep but getting it in the dust pan was a problem. (Cat hair flies in the air or just away. So I bought this stationary vacuum thing so I could just sweep it into the machine. That isn't working so great. Is there a gadget that I could use to sweep the floors that would suck up the cat hair and any small dust? I see this thing, but I just don't know. https://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/sto...per/1018050668
I own a vacuum, but to drag it out for a spot sweeping is a pain.

What do you use if you use something like this?

What about a cordless dust buster? Look them up on Amazon.

Same problem

Last fall I replaced the carpet with hardwood floors. With 6 cats, who have a tendency to spit up , I LOVE THE NEW FLOORS!!! However I feel like I could vacuum 5 times a day and it would still look like I need to do it again. I tried a couple of the manual sweepers but was not satisfied. Along with my regular vacuum I have a cordless one. I use that far more than the corded vacuum. The one I purchased from Amazon, Moosoo, has a light at the base, a very nice feature.

old fashioned solution

Surprisingly, my aunt had a solution for getting cat hair and dander up off the laminate floors. She sprayed Endust on one of those mops with dangly bits () and tada, no cat hairs on floor! And she and my mom (they lived together after Dad passed away) were not steady on their feet but the Endust didn't cause them any problem with slipping.

What about a Swiffer? It picks up a lot of dog hair here.

Hair salons use it, so it should be able to handle your cat hair.

That is so funny because that's pretty much what I own.

Roomba. We have laminate floors and three cats, and Robbie Roomba is the best Iíve found. And he does his thing without me, which is great.

I grew up doing that at our house- my mom had a thing with that! We did that on tile. We didn't have pets, it was really just for dust instead of mopping

I've got what PrivateEyes posted (different model) and it's very useful for pet hair.

I spray Murphy's Oil Soap on a "loose" sweeper mop and it clings well. I LOVE the smell of Murphy's!

I have two cats, and there are kitty-hair tumbleweeds all throughout my house every day, no matter how often I clean!!

But the method that I've found to be the most effective for cat hair is the SWIFFER. Easy, light-weight, works like a charm. I use it every day. (works great in the bathroom for human hair, too, !)
