Pick up fragments

When vacuuming your home, it’s always annoying to find bits and pieces that are too big for your vacuum. Instead of ending up with all those icky bits in your hand, tie a plastic grocery bag to your belt loop. That way, you’ll have a portable garbage can with you at all times!

Remove odors

To rid your house of pet, cooking, or other smells, add a cotton ball soaked in vanilla or lavender oil to your vacuum cleaner bag. It’s a great way to rid your home of an offensive odor by creating a nice scent instead. Source: QuickAndDirtyTips

Move slowly

Carpets and rugs often feel great when brand new, but if vacuuming incorrectly, they will “ugly out” before they wear out. “Don’t vacuum like you are driving a race car,” cautions Paul Iskyan, president of Rug Renovating, a rug and carpet cleaning company in New York City. Instead, use a vacuum with good suction and move in slow, repetitive, overlapping strokes. This will remove up to 85 percent of dust and allergens, while also making high-traffic patterns less noticeable.

Use the right attachment

Most vacuums come with a few basic tools that suffice for most cleaning jobs: a crevice tool for tight spots, such as under large appliances; a small upholstery brush, good for furniture and mattresses; a round brush for dusting steps and windowsills. Pay attention to carpet-height adjustment, a feature which matches the height of the vacuum to a carpet’s pile height for easy movement and thorough cleaning. On canister vacuums, a power nozzle cleans carpets more thoroughly than a simple suction nozzle. Source: ConsumerReports
