Freshen House While You Vacuum

Here's a good way to freshen your house while you vacuum. When putting a new vacuum cleaner bag in your machine, place a cotton ball soaked in clove or you favorite scented oil inside the bag (or in the plastic container on the bag-less models).


It fills your home with a nice aroma and doesn't get into the carpet, or harm pets, or children.

Great idea but we have a bagless vac -- will that work on that? Don't want to mess up my vac! Thanks.

I have a Dyson. When I put a dryer sheet in the clear canister, I can't smell anything.


I think it may be because of its tight seal and the HEPA filters. Has anyone else had this issue with the newer vacuums?

I tried it and it only works for one time. the next time you have to put in a new cotton ball...ok w/bagless...but quite wasteful with bags.
