A Fine And Fancy Scent

6 Jan

Ok, maybe this is a silly thing to post about.  But, it’s a little trick that I use frequently in my home.  I don’t even remember where I got the idea, but it works.

Have you ever put whole cloves in your vacuum cleaner – so that while vacuuming you are putting the scent of cloves into the air, rather than having that sometimes musty smell that comes from vacuums?  If you haven’t already tried it, you should.  I keep a large bottle of whole cloves handy in my pantry (or you could keep it in the closet with the vacuum cleaner).  After emptying the canister I toss in 8-10 cloves.  The next time I vacuum the room gets a fresh scent as well. It’s a fine idea!
