Dog hair problem :(

I recently bought a used e90 m3, body looks fine same with the interior. I recently looked closely at the carpet in the trunk,its full of hair. The rear floor has some dog hairs on the carpet and on the rear headliner. I have already scrubbed those places with a soft brush but they're still there. I've vacuum and brushed at the same time and it still leaves hairs. Can anyone give me advice on how I can get rid of all the hair. Specially on the headliner

Wrap duct tape around your hand (sticky part out) and go to town.

Be sure to test the duct tape somewhere inconspicuous first to confirm that none of the adhesive will leave a residue on the fabric/carpet. A lint roller or packing tape (the clear kind) used in the same fashion should also do the trick. Best of luck!

This is going to sound crazy, but hear me out. Use a pumice stone like this one: http://www.amazon.com/NuSole-Pedi-St.../dp/B0006V5M74

It is without question the best tool for removing dog hair. It's especially good at getting out the stubborn hairs embedded deep in carpet/felt. Little grains will come off as you use it, but just simply vacuum them up with the hair. It also gently removes any excess fuzz, making the material look brand new after cleaning.

Take a look:

This is why I like fish. They don't say anything, no mess, and they don't go in your car.

I don't know about yours, but my fish don't like it when I cuddle with them.
