Secrets of Success

Fresh Vacuum



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