Use a Paper Towel Tube for Vacuuming

While vacuuming, I misplaced the tube with the flat end. I noticed an empty paper towel tube and flattened the end of it. It worked perfectly!

Try going to a cheap second hand store, not the pricier ones that advertise but the back street ones, and get another crevice wand, most are usable for all machines, I have several because my mother and I save all the old tools.

I love the clever ideas I get from this site. All the people on here are just smarter than the average bear. LOL.

Seen this one many times over. Finally tried it and it doesn't work. Unless you have a vacuum with no power, it just pulls the cardboard right in flattening it completely. I used a strong roll too. You all can try it and perhaps have better luck but I doubt it.
