Hair on the bathroom floor

(15 Posts)

I've always absolutely hated picking up hair. My own, somebody else's, makes no difference.

Since having DD we seem to constantly have loads of stray hairs on the bathroom floor. She 'plays' with my (long) hair when I put her to sleep and sometimes throughout the night, so when I brush my hair in the morning a lot comes out sad
Obviously catching most of it with the brush but there still seems to be loads on the floor at the end of the day.

What's the best way to clean this up? I don't want to hoover every night. Baby wipes kind of work but I still struggle to pick them off the floor tiles. They sort of stick to the floor...

Sorry, not a very pleasant topic, hoping for your wise suggestions anyway!

Would one of those rubber brushes made for sweeping up pet hairs work?

I Hoover because I hate picking them up too. I hate using mops or brushes because the hair just sticks yo them. Could you get a small handheld rechargeable hoover?

Rubber gloves are good for picking up hairs.

This is why I've had my ensuite renovated with dark tiles, so I can't see the pubes and shite. Happy to clean the floor once a week (barring horridness), but the everlasting hairs on white tiles did my swede in.

echt you're on to something there!

I have the worst possible combination in my house, black tiles in the kitchen (you can see every drop) and white ones in the bathroom.
This isn't our "forever* hours so won't be investing in new tiles. I need a different solution! grin

I don't mind picking up hair but I now have a very light wooden floor everywhere and an even lighter color for the tiles in the kitchen and shows every single hair on it!
My solution has been buying one of those flat mops where you can attach a dusting cloth. I use one per day after I dry my hair and it's magic! It attract dust but also hair, and it's disposable. I paid £5 for the mop in Tesco and a pack of 20 dusters are about £2 (I believe Tesco's own brand are even cheaper).

One of these? I use them for everything - when I'm lazy and don't want to drag the hoover out, I sweep up and this lifts the last bit of dust.

IKEA lint roller

I bend over every time I'm on the loo with some toilet paper and take up anything visible, it picks up hair quite easily without having to touch it and straight down the loo. Staying on top of it like this helps loads
