Vacuum Fun You would Want to Have!
1. Perfect Solution to a Bugging Problem
Do you often find yourself trying to get the perfect aim at a bug with a fly swat? Do you ultimately have to resort to poisonous insect sprays? Not anymore! Get a vacuum cleaner and suck all the annoying bugs into it. Point it at corners and under furniture to root out the pesky things. The best part is you don’t even have to go near them.
2. Lost and Found
One of the best uses of a vacuum cleaner is to find small things that get lost quite often. Forget spending long hours on all fours looking for lost jewellery, buttons and what not. Get your vacuum cleaner to help. Tie a muslin cloth or a stocking to the nozzle and then push it around. Small lost items will be in your hands within no time.
3. Lint Up
Does your husband complain about lint or the fur of your pets stuck to his clothes? Getting it off manually is a task so try something different. Aim your vacuum cleaner on clothing stretched across a flat surface. You can ask your husband to hold it. Just move the nozzle up and down to remove unsightly hair, fur and lint.
4. Brush it Off
Are you allergic to your dog’s fur and find it hard to brush it without triggering an allergy? Now you can keep them at bay and still brush your pet’s fur with a vacuum cleaner. Just make sure the suction is turned all the way down and move the nozzle over its body. Your dog will love it, provided he’s not scared of the noise.
5. Soothe Your Baby
If you sometimes find it hard to soothe your crying baby no matter what tricks you try, here’s an idea. Just place the vacuum cleaner at a distance so that your baby can hear it. It shouldn’t be loud. The sound may be enough to soothe your baby and quieten him.
Now that you’ve discovered the many other uses of a vacuum cleaner, you’ll enjoy taking yours out and using it for more than just cleaning. This powerful appliance has numerous uses up its nozzle and it’s up to you to find them!
