Give your house an incredible scent

There is something magical and mystical about the smell of your home… or not? If you don’t have the persistence to grow aromatic plants in your home, there is a simpler and clever way to make your home smell like spring. Just dip a small cotton ball into your favorite perfume or essential oil and put it into your vacuum cleaner bag. The aroma will delicately release and freshen up the air as you vacuum.

Find tiny easy-to-misplace items

Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but not when they are lost. We all know how easy it is to drop and misplace earrings. Cover the vacuum cleaner’s hose with an old piece of clothing and attach it with an elastic band. Then run it in between couch pillows, behind beds and over the floors to find your missing, precious belongings.

Remove those appalling carpet dents

Once in a while everybody wants to freshen up the look of their house and upholstery and rearrange the furniture. Thanks to the vacuum cleaner, you don’t have to put up with bothersome carpet dents after you move heavy items.

Just place ice cubes on those depressed areas and wait until they have melted. The carpet fibers will become more malleable, so you can vacuum over the wet spots and bring them back to the same level as the surrounding carpet.

Inflate an air mattress

Whenever your battery-powered or electric pump is broken, lost or flat, use the vacuum cleaner to blow up your air mattress. It is convenient and inflates as fast as you can count to one-two-three.
