Why is the pet hair eraser disposable?

I purchased your new Pledge pet hair eraser and love it. It works great picking up cat hair from my 2 cats. My only concern is that, Why is it made to be disposable? I would have given it a 11 out of 10 stars if it would not have been disposable. Right now I would have to rank it 8 out of 10. If I have coupons for it and it is on sale in the store then I will stock up. But to pay $4.00 + tax every 3 weeks or so, I do not see myself doing that. An old fashioned lint brush actually works just as good, but I like the idea of the hair being caught. Now all you have to do is make the catch top lid pop off so you can shake out the hair in the garbage, pop it back on and then keep on cleaning. Then I would give this product an A+. Plus if you make it non-disposable the "green people" will be happier too because that will mean less plastic in out landfills.

The top DOES pop off! I just did it, emptied my roller, and kept
rolling!

Pledge's packaging is SO MISLEADING. My roller filled up in about
five minutes (I have three cats...), and I couldn't fathom the idea of
throwing it away and buying another, so I pried the top off, emptied
it out, put it back, and off I went.

PLEASE don't throw them away--pop off the top and re-use them, and
follow my lead in writing a letter to Pledge to tell them to PLEASE
not advertise this as a disposable product! They'd probably sell far
more touting it as a re-usable!

The commercial for this product is very misleading. I remember
thinking "finally! An alternative to all those annoying sticky
sheets!" Then I found it at Wal-Mart today, saw the word "disposable"
and put it back on the shelf. I don't remember the commercial ever
saying anything about this thing being disposable, I just assumed
someone had finally come up with a good idea. Close, but not good
enough. Now if someone would replace the thin plastic catcher on the
top with a more sturdy one and make it removable, we might just have a
hit!

It seems like so much more of a waste to toss this out than the sticky
sheets. Now if I had a choice between a dollar store lint roller or
this four dollar fabric sweeper and BOTH have to be thrown away
eventually, which one do you think I'm gonna go with, hm?

Hey Larissa. Have you ever had a vacuum cleaner that worked great,
but the bags were disposable? You know why they made them disposable
- to make more money. I'll admit I have more than once emptied a
disposable bag to avoid buying new ones.

This is good feedback, but I have this feeling their marketing
executives will chuckle when they see it. They'll feel good knowing
how great you think it works, and though you may not be a regular
customer, others with deeper pockets will be.

I am about to become the parent of a puppy for the first time, and I
guess I will be learning all about hair, as well as other things.
I'll remember this product, though I can't see buying one every three
weeks either!

Good comments. I use my upholstery brush and then follow up with the
big lint roller-- and even with that, I hate the wastefulness of the
tape on the lint roller.
