1. Funky smells: If you're dealing with funky smells in your carpet or upholstery, sprinkle some baking soda over the area before vacuuming. Let it sit for a few minutes, then vacuum it up. The baking soda will absorb the odours and leave your home smelling fresh.

2. Lint Roller Love: Don't have time to vacuum the entire house? Grab a lint roller and roll it over your furniture and carpet. It's a quick and easy way to pick up dirt and debris without pulling out the big guns.

3. Sock It To 'Em: Misplaced a small item, like an earring or Lego piece? Slip a clean sock over the end of your vacuum hose and run it over the area where you think the item might be hiding. The suction will pull the item into the sock, saving you from crawling on your hands and knees.

4. Dryer Sheet Delight: Place a dryer sheet in your vacuum bag or canister. Not only will it make your home smell amazing, but it will also help reduce static and clingy pet hair.

5. Brush It Off: Use a stiff-bristled brush to loosen dirt and debris from your carpets before vacuuming. This will make it easier for your vacuum to pick up all the dirt and leave your carpets looking like new.

6. On The Edge: Most vacuums come with a crevice tool, but if yours doesn't, use a cardboard tube from a roll of paper towels. Slide it over the end of your vacuum hose and use it to clean hard-to-reach areas like baseboards, window sills, and between furniture.

7. Get rid of carpet indentations with ice cubes: If you’ve moved your furniture and are left with unsightly carpet indentations, fear not because ice cubes can be your secret weapon. Just place an ice cube over the indentation and let it melt. The carpet fibers will plump back up, and the indentation will disappear.

8. Mattresses are often overlooked when it comes to cleaning, but they can harbor dust mites, dead skin cells, and other allergens. To clean your mattress, use your vacuum's upholstery tool to remove any surface dirt and dust. Then, sprinkle baking soda on the mattress and let it sit for an hour. The baking soda will absorb any odours and moisture. Finally, vacuum the baking soda and any remaining dirt from the mattress.

So there you have it, folks, some of the best vacuum tips that are sure to make your cleaning routine a lot easier. Who knew that vacuuming could be so fun? Happy cleaning!
