Help! How can I get rid of cut hair from clothes?

DH cut his mum's hair and used one of DD's blankets as the haircutting cape [hmmm]
I then washed the blanket with lots of other white stuff and everything has come out of the machine covered in cut hair.
Anyone (hairdressers?) have any advice on how to get rid of it? If I wash them all again will that work?

tumble it dry do you have a dryer?

Sorry, no drier.

(I got the wrong number of 'M's for the sceptical emoticon too)

Lots of sellotape. could take a while. Wait till they're dry and give everything a really good shake outside (or hand on the line - it is pretty windy). Good luck.

Do you have a clothes brush? or ask around, see if anyone has one you can borrow.

Hair drier, hang the washing out on a windy day?

Flint roller - large white roller covered in large sticky pads, peel off when covered. Work a treat on blankets covered in all different kinds of hair.

I dont know what sort of blanket you have got, but you could try hoovering it with the handheld or the hand/pipe bit of a normal hoover. It might take time to do it though.

You mean you wanted this emoticon ;) lol

I have not seen that 1 until now you have said about it.

Thanks all. Time to get the sellotape out, I think.

hazelnuts- I think the new emoticon just appeared today.
