This tip is good for clothes and for lounge chairs etc. Buy a big roll of cheap masking sticky tape, the 2" wide variety, cut off a 12' - 14" length and press down lightly on the hairy fabric. Keep moving this piece of tape around in various positions continually picking up more hair. When it is so full of hair that it no longer picks up then cut off a new length and start over.
