Maker goes beyond sweeping and vacuuming and shows you how to get pet hair out from grimy corners and floor/carpet seams.
A dampened rubber squeegee is her preferred tool for scraping hair off of furniture.
 
Maker has loads of laundry tips for alleviating pet hair on clean clothes; relaxing fabric fibers by adding half a cup of white vinegar to each load of wash is just one of them!
Regular pet grooming is also highly recommended, especially for what Maker calls particularly hairy "catzillas" and "dogensteins." All of her amazing suggestions for managing pet hair can be found in her video.
