One of things I love using my oils for is cleaning. For quite some time now, I have been putting a few drops of a Young Living essential oil on our vacuum filter right before I vacuum the house. It’s such a simple thing to do, but it helps keep the pet smell (we have two dogs) at bay in our small carpeted house. Our vacuum definitely takes a beating with all of the dirt and dog hair that gets sucked up into it several times a week and I am sure that you can imagine what the air coming out of the vacuum filter smells like sometimes. In fact, our vacuum gets so much use that we actually blow out it out with the leaf blower on a weekly basis (that’s another great tip, unrelated to oiling). Adding a few drops of an essential oil to our vacuum filter makes our house smell so nice! It’s like making an essential oil diffuser out of your vacuum cleaner!
I tend to mix up the essential oil I add to the filter every time I vacuum. The oil I pick simply depends on which oil I feel like smelling that day. You have got to try this cleaning tip…it will make your house smell AMAZING! Say goodbye to pet odor and a stale smelling vacuum!
