I think I had one of those Gonzo Sponges once, or something similar anyway. I never used it because I couldn't stand the feel of it. Have you used one? I imagine it would work because it felt damp and sticky.

I have a powerful vacuum and I find it still needs the beater bar to get the fur up off the fabric.  Now your hand can be the beater bar too.

Our central vac has a power head attachment with a rotating brush and it really does a good job of picking up the fur.  When I don't want to get the vac out I use a rubber glove.  We also have a Dyson hand vac with a power head attachment with a rotating brush that does the same but better for smaller jobs.

Good tips there Chris.  I have used a damp hand to get pet hair off of my couch, but never tried a damp face cloth.

Jane's rubber glove trick seems to work the best for furniture.
