If every time you vacuum your house smells unpleasant, it's probably time to remedy this problem with an easy fix. All it takes to get the vacuum smelling better again is to use a dryer sheet. Next time you change the vacuum bag, try putting a dryer sheet inside the new vacuum bag before you put it into place. This will leave the vacuum smelling much better. There are other DIY ideas and simple life hacks that will help your vacuum smell much better. It's easy to forget that your vacuum needs cleaning too. The vacuum is good at keeping your floors clean, but you want to remember to clean it out every so often. To give the vacuum canister a fresh scent you can try tossing in an essential oil-soaked cotton ball into the vacuum canister. Lavender essential oil works really well for this. When you need to vacuum a smelly area in the house, try sprinkling the area first with some baking soda to help lessen the smell on both the surface and inside the vacuum.

Vacuuming is a house chore that should be a regular part of your cleaning, but not everyone knows how to do this simple cleaning task properly. There are some simple life hacks and house cleaning tips that will get the job done properly. To start you want to be sure and vacuum in both directions. If you only vacuum in one direction, you are not removing all of the dust and dirt. Some of the dirt can hide under the carpet fibers, and when you vacuum in both directions, north and south, east and west, it will ensure you get every last bit of dust out of your carpet. Don't let your vacuum bag fill up completely. Bagged vacuums work best when they are half-full, at most. Never reuse your vacuum bags, doing so can cut efficiency by up to 50 percent. Don't vacuum too quickly. Be sure to take your time. Vacuuming slowly will allow your vacuum to suck up more dirt and dust, and ultimately get your carpets and rugs much cleaner. Slow vacuuming also allows the vacuum brush to agitate the carpet properly and to suck up the unclean bits that emerge.

Another vacuuming mistake that people make is to not use the crevice tool on the room's edges. At least twice a month, you should use the vacuum's crevice tool on the edges of your homes rooms, even if they are hardwood. The following diy idea and house cleaning tip are probably one of the most important things you can do when it comes to vacuuming your house. You need always to make sure to adjust your vacuum's height when you move from the carpet to rugs and hardwood. Some vacuums do this important step automatically, but if your vacuum doesn't, you want to make sure to take the time to make the appropriate vacuum adjustments. It will make a huge difference in the cleanliness of your home's floor surfaces. Don't wait for your carpets to look dirty before you think to vacuum. Don't wait until you can see the dirt and dust to start cleaning. Dirt can pile up underneath the carpet fibers at the bottom of the rug long before you even notice it, which causes sniffles and allergies to flare up. You want to set a regular vacuuming schedule and try to stick to it, even if you don't think it's necessary.
