Like tumbleweeds rolling across the desert, cat fur swirls around our house. When a door is opened, the breeze picks up those wispy strands and floats them throughout the house until they come to rest on every conceivable surface. Whenever friends visit, I am always embarrassed to see what the back of their trousers or skirts look like when they leave the house. Well no more, thanks to Lilly Brush.

When Lilly Brush contacted me and asked if I would like to try their product, Be Forever Furless, and review it on the blog, I couldn’t type fast enough to send them my reply of: “Yes, how soon can you get it here?”

Calista Jo occupies a kitchen chair.

Lilly Brush claims that their product removes pet fur from all fabric, natural and synthetic. And it did just that when I tried it. I used it on the upholstered seats of our kitchen chairs, which are always occupied by cats as well as a cushy layer of their lost furs.

Lilly Brush recommends dampening the bristles slightly, tapping off excess water and then rubbing the brush briskly over the item to be “defurred.” To be honest, I tried it dry and dampened. I think it worked quite well either way, but the fur is more easily removed from the brush when it has been dampened. The fur collects on the surface of the brush’s bristles as seen in the photos.

I used it on the carpet as well, but I was most happy with the job it did on the cat tower in the kitchen. Lisbeth was very happy with the result as well.

Lisbeth, Be Forever Furless brush and a clean pedestal.


The fur is easily pulled off the bristles for disposal. Lilly Brush suggests occasionally cleaning the Be Forever Furless with water and light soap. I haven’t needed to do this yet.

Do I recommend this product? I sure do. It beats dragging the vacuum out of the closet, and it does as advertised…easily remove pet fur from fabric.

If you would like the opportunity to try it for yourself, please leave a comment on this blog prior to 5 p.m. EST, Sunday, February 1. A winner of one Lily Brush Be Forever Furless will be selected using and announced a week from today.

If you don’t want to wait to see if you win, you can order your very own Lilly Brush Be Forever Furless from a variety of retailers, ranging in cost from $14.99 through $19.95. Lilly Brush also makes the product, Save Our Sweaters.

Disclaimer: We received no monetary compensation for our review. We did receive two Lilly Brush Be Forever Furless, one for our use and one to give away to a reader. All opinions and recommendations are strictly our own.

Oh, Mommy would love that brush. Gee! I seem to shed more than any other kitty she has been owned by combined!

Lola and Lexy January 28, 2015 at 2:39 pm

Mommy said she could sure use that brush around here! We’d like to be entered!

Create With Joy January 28, 2015 at 12:59 pm

Oh my goodness, do you know how much fur my Maine Coons generate?
I have allergies and as I sneeze I watch their fur twirl around through the air!
I have to keep rolls of paper towels handy to groom them because I cannot clean their fur brushes out fast enough!
Thanks for the review – and my family and friends alike plea – pick us!
(we ALL need de-furring!) 🙂

Oh that looks nice. Mom uses duct tape to get rid of fur on furniture and an old backcombing brush on us. We would like to win that one…it looks cool.

I have two kitties who diligently keep all surfaces well covered in their beautiful furs.
It sounds that the Lilly Brush would be a good way to keep those furs at home instead of going out the door on my friends’ clothing. I hope we win.

Bailey Boat Cat January 26, 2015 at 11:21 pm

Wow what a pawesome product! We’d love one of those! I LOVE the first line it made me giggle!

OMC! We would love to win that brush! That way Mommy would quit complaining about all the furs all over! Of course she only sees my furs when she says that but that’s because they’re white! I know my sisfur Isabella’s furs would show up with that brush!

Kitty Cat Chronicles January 26, 2015 at 12:44 pm

Sounds like something we could use! Our couches, chairs, floors, clothes, guests… always COVERED in fur! Although the cats think that everything looks better with a bit of fur added…
Despite what they think, we would love to be entered in your giveaway!

Sampy would also like to send as many kisses to Astrid as there are black furs on his and her bodies. We are all sending lots of love!

Being new to your blog, it looks like I came at just the right time! This looks like a product that must be checked out. We currently have seven cats indoors and seven more that we feed and shelter outside (can’t bring in anymore since hubby now has cat allergies) 🙁
Hubby is currently vacuuming the cat tree as I write this! 😀

Brian Frum January 26, 2015 at 10:57 am

Sammy January 26, 2015 at 9:42 am

Oh that is truly the answer to a prayer! We only have one cat of course BUT he does like to leave a trail of flying fur behind him after he’s been brushed or groomed himself………if you have a cat, you have fur everywhere PERIOD. Sign us up – I’d love to give this a try!

Hugs, Pam

Great! I need one of those for my bed and for darker clothes that I do not dare to wear out of the house …. my cats are looking at me askance as if I did not love them any more for wanting to get rid of those fur gifts they shed for me. And do you know what the floating floor fur balls are called in Italian? ‘gattini’ ! which means ‘kittens’ – appropriate, no? Now I’ll go google that miracle brush to see where I can get it … Ciao, V. P. and M.

Pipo &Minko ~ WeBeesSiameezers January 26, 2015 at 1:30 am

My goodness, how we can relate to the swirls of kitty fur on things no kitty even touches, MOL!
Not to mention the thick embedded furs on the things they do sit/lie on…
Dog-guy is good at leaving his dagger-like furs on evfurrything, too.
Vacuuming does a good job, but touchups with the brush would be way more pleasant and not scary to the kitties.

That Brush sounds like a great item and we would love a chance to win one!
