Last year we revamped my entire website and since then I have noticed that people were missing one of my top ranked posts.  It was the one about freshening up a bagless vacuum cleaner.  This cracks me up because there are plenty of other long, well-written posts that do not get as much traffic as this little one so I am bringing it back!


Today’s Tuesday Tip is all about bagless vacuum cleaners!  First, let me start off by saying that my Shark vacuum is one of my very favorite products in our home.  I am absolutely obsessed with it!  It has amazing suction, is lightweight and easy to clean.  I am sharing the link here so you know what I am talking about.


But this post is not all about the Shark vacuum.  It is about the fact that after a while, no matter how often you clean it, a bagless vacuum cleaner gets a distinct smell.  Especially if you have pets in your home!  That used to drive me nuts but I have discovered two ways to make your vacuum smell fresh and clean!  Wait for it…


1. Downy Unstopables! 

Sprinkle a few of these into the canister of your vacuum and your entire house will smell like Heaven!


2. Young Living Essential Oils.

All you need is about 6 drops on your filter and your vacuum can smell however you like!  I use Lime in the summer, Christmas Spirit and Evergreen in the winter and Purification all year on and off.  If you would like to order any of these oils feel free to email me.
