Does anyone know of any alternatives that can be used instead of the regular scents that you put into your rainbow vacuum cleaner? I don't have any stores near me that sell them and don't want to buy them online without being able to smell them first. I thought about putting liquid potpourri in it but I don't know if that would work and how much I should use? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated! Thank you.
My husband is a huge fan of our rainbow vac. (It's his big chore, and always looks for ways to make it more fun) He buys herbal extracts from the grocery store (Whole Foods would have tons) like peppermint, vanilla, eucalyptus, etc. He says it only takes two to three drops from an eyedropper to really work well. He said your idea of liquid potpourri would work fine, too. Just don't add too much right off the bat, because wow, it can really fill the house. Good luck!
In the water chamber, when you add the fresh water, add a few drops of essential oil of your choice.
Wal-Mart sells these oils for 2 or 3 dollars, and one container will last for several uses.
For years I have used 1/4 cup of my favorite fabric softener in the rainbow as a scent. It is fantastic and doesn't cause suds!
Hi I used to work for Rainbow and using any oils/fragrances not approved by Rexair voids your warranty and can also cause build up around your motor.
My wife and I have had our Rainbow for about 15 years and still love it! We use the Rainbow oils most of the time, but if we run out, we've found that fresh Orange, Lemon or Tangerine peels added to the water will also give a good fresh Citrus smell.
Sadly that is true. I too worked for rainbow and the separator was dirty was the first thing the man I worked for said when I took mine in. I called him on it though bc I was one that cleaned it with a toothbrush every time or two that I used it. IF you use anything besides the fragrances be sure it does not suds. That will burn the Motor out.
For those adding products that foam, our dealer suggested to add a few drops of Jet Dry, Finish (etc.), will allow scented product and minimize or reduce foaming. I like adding splash-less Clorox, once a month with Jet Dry (just a few drops) helps to reduce fungi in the air during winter.
