The $8 rubber broom from Kmart has mums singing its praise.

Kmart mums are claiming the broom works better than a vacuum cleaner for removing pet hair from rugs and carpet.

One woman thrilled by how effective broom is took to Facebook to reveal that previously she’d only ever used it on tiled areas of her home.

‘I thought I’d give it a go on my carpets AFTER vacuuming!,’ she explained before adding: ‘Shocked to see how much dog hair I could get up with this little beauty.

‘I feel rubbish thinking my carpets were clean with the vacuum.’

Another said it had been a godsend in her home, and she said it had worked wonders at removing rabbit hair from her carpet.

‘This Kmart rubber broom has been great, it’s bloody hard work and makes me sweat but the result is great,’ she wrote.

‘We have a black rabbit who is absolutely gorgeous but loses a lot of hair. Bonus the rug feels better after a good sweep too.’

Another shared how the device had worked wonders in removing stubborn dog hair from the back of her car.

‘Kmart rubber broom worked a treat getting all the dog hair out of my car and boot. 10 times quicker than vacuuming.’

Worth a shot!

  • Good for everyday without taking out the entire vacuum.


  • Wow! Must get one of these – would be perfect for the days in between vacuuming!


  • I really like Kmart! A really good idea in this article. I’ll probably use it for sure.


  • I’ll have to get myself one of these, it’s a pain to always set up the vacuum cleaner.


  • This is the same concept as the squeegee so probably also good for occasional cleans but not regular use.


  • Oooo I want to try this on my rug !


  • Would have loved this idea before but we now have wood floors right throughout the house. Who would have thought that a cheap broom could be better than a vacuum cleaner?


  • I wonder if it has any negative affect on the carpet fibres. There is special covers you can put on your car seats that you can pull out and clean separately. They are possibly washable. Some of them have waterproof backing on them in case your dog gets wet getting in the car in bad weather or has an “accident” or gets car sick. We had a dog was sick in the car once. I think you can get cover you can cut to size to fit your boot too.


  • Thanks for letting us all know – hate vacuuming the car boot as it never looks like its been done afterwards.


  • I love it when people share things like this!


  • Looks and sounds brilliant will give it a go, Vacuum doesnot get the hair I know


  • Definitely going to purchase this next time I’m at kmart! Probably along with another 100 items I don’t necessarily ‘need’ ????

    • haha thats pretty standard when you go to Kmart isnt it! I always walk out with things I never knew I needed hahah


  • What a great idea, thank you.


  • I love mine so much. I had it for over a year now and use it weekly and it keeps the hair at bay


  • A great share. We have a dog who doesn’t shed is fur so we wouldn’t need this item but love it for some friends.
