Fresh Vacuum


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

When my vacuum cleaner starts to smell stale, I sprinkle some nutmeg or allspice on the carpet and vacuum it up. It makes everything smell better!

    Thank you for this great idea, I am always trying to find ways to make the home smell fresher, and this wonderful.

    Thank you for the perfect way of freshening my vacuum, and my rooms also. I have an old, arthritic dog who needs to spend most of his time inside and although he and my other dog are regularly bathed and groomed I still wonder about the possibilities of a 'doggy' smell inside I don't notice. I've often asked friends who say they can smell nothing, but this would just be an added benefit - I love the smell of cinnamon. I'm going to try this now. emoticon

    This also works if you sprinkle some ground coffee on the floor, not the carpet and vacuum it up.
