The gel lint roller is part of the new Beldray Pet Plus+ range available on Amazon. Even if you don't have a pet, a lint roller is a handy cleaning gadget to have around the home.

Lynsey has previous demonstrated the wonders of using one to keep lampshades and furniture dust-free. The added bonus of the Beldray version is that it's easy to clean and you don't need to throw away sticky sheets of paper.

Simply wash the roller with soap and water when you're done and leave to dry. It will remain sticky and ready to use.

If you struggle to get on your hands and knees to tackle pet hair ridden carpets, it is also available with a telescopic handle. Perfect for tackling any patches the vacuum cleaner struggles with.
