Use old pantyhose

This trick can also help in retrieving a lost object from an unreachable place such as one under the couch. While you use this trick, do ensure that the item you are sucking does not get into the hose or the bag of your vacuum cleaner as that may cause damage.
Use your brush attachment
The brush attachment of your vacuum cleaner, somehow, finds the least amount of utility. However, this is a pretty useful tool. It can be easily used to clean mirror frames, pictures, books, lampshades and blinds of windows. In fact, you can suck up pollen from the windowsills easily and safeguard yourself against diseases.
Fix carpet dents
Heavy objects often leave behind a dent on your carpets when they are removed. These dents are annoying as anything but can be removed using a vacuum cleaner. Just place some ice cubes on the dent and let them melt. Then use a wet and dry vacuum cleaner to pull the fabric back in place.
Complement your cleaning with baking soda
Sprinkle some baking soda on a smelly item. Allow it to stand for about 30 minutes and then suck it up with your vacuum cleaner. The stench would be gone.
Use a scented item in the bag
You can consider dumping a dryer sheet into the bag and spray its scent everywhere you take your vacuum cleaner.
Reach some places
Your vacuum cleaner may come with a plethora of attachments but somehow all of them fail to reach some crazy corners. For such places, you can use a vacuum tube, bend it into the appropriate shape and then reach out for the place.
Or try pouring some scented liquid
You may also consider using your favorite scented liquid into the bag. This method is more effective than the dryer sheet method.
Or try some cinnamon
Sprinkle some cinnamon in your bag to rid your vacuum cleaner of any peculiar smell that it might have picked up while cleaning.
That is how you can leverage your vacuum cleaner to obtain a cleaner home. So next time when you pick up your vacuum cleaner, do try these clever ways to obtain good results. Happy vacuuming!
