Default Doxie coat velcro not sticking together

Tasha's blanket coat's belly strap velcro is not sticking well anymore. Anytime I have to pull her (away from food, etc) it comes unstuck and the coat flies open. Other than that the coat is fine.

Does anyone know a way to get the stray hairs, fibers, etc, out of velcro so its more "sticky" again?

Sorry I don't know but I'm sure someone else will be able to help you.
They may be small, but you should see their hearts. Shelter/Rescue dogs aren't broken. They've simply experienced more life than other dogs. If they were human we would call them wise. They would be the ones with tales to tell and stories to write. The ones dealt a bad hand who responded with courage. Do not pity a shelter/rescue dog. Adopt one. And be proud to have their greatness on your side. Anon (click daily to give free care and food)

I got this:
Q: My gym bag closes with a strip a velcro and one side of the velcro is full on lint and his bag won't stay closed. What's the trick to getting the lint off velcro so it'll stick again?

A: The best way to clean velcro is with another piece of velcro. Take the rough or hook part and draw it rapidly through the lint-filled side and this will raise the trapped debris which you can pull out with your hands.

from here

And I also found this:
Clean the Velcro if necessary by using a darning needle to lift the hair pads and duct tape to remove stragglers.
from here

You can also use a toothpick and run it thru, sometimes i use my seam ripper and just run it thru the grooves.

A darning needle. That sounds good. Thanks Lisa!

Shame a doxie tongue won't do it....:rofl: Tasha "cleans" everything else in the apt.

Good info! I've never known how to "fix" velcro that quits sticking.
