I have 13 vacuum cleaning tips to share with you! A few things to help you clean faster, deodorize, and take care of your vacuum cleaner.
Clean Your Vacuum Roller –
Rollers get hair, strings, and other things caught around them.
When you’re done cleaning, cut the strings with a scissors.
Next, pull them right off your roller.

Baking soda is a great deodorizer. Sprinkle it onto your carpet and let it stand for 30 minutes.
Once the time has past, vacuum as usual.
