Here is a spring time “hack” for those of you who use fleece blankets but dread the chore of getting all that shedded horse hair off of them.  Use an old fashioned Furminator shedding brush.  Not on your horse, but on your fleece blanket.

Wet the blanket and then hang it on your clothesline.  As it drip dries, gently pull the Furminator over the blanket surface.  Presto, the tool easily pulls all of the loose hair from the blanket fibers!
