You may think a cordless vacuum cleaner serves one purpose only, to leave your home clean and dust free. But think again!
We’ve scoured the internet and compiled a list of 4 unusual uses for your cordless vacuum.
It can help sleep
The monotonous noise of a vacuum cleaner is well known to help people drift off to sleep.
When in the early stages of falling asleep, we are vulnerable to noises which can disturb sleep patterns, waking us back up.
Running a vacuum cleaner in another part of the house provides a monotonous white noise, blocking out other loud noises that can disturb sleep.
Why use your cordless device? Well, the good thing about cordless is that they’re often not as loud as corded vacuums. Also, the battery life is limited, so it will eventually run out of power.
Find lost items
Lost an earring or a coin down the side of your sofa? No problem, you can use your cordless vacuum cleaner to help find it.
Put a sock or some tights over the top of the suction tube and secure it with an elastic band. Then simply use the hoover nozzle to locate the lost item.
The sock will prevent it from being sucked into the machine – which let’s face it, wouldn’t be pleasant.
Remove carpet dents
We all know how annoying it is when you want to move furniture, but you don’t want visible indents in your carpet from where the object used to be. Well, believe it or not your cordless vacuum can help.
There are two common ways you can get rid of those pesky dents - depending on how deep they are. Either use fresh ice cubes or a damp towel to gently dampen the surface, softening the fibres, let it dry for a couple of minutes and then use the cordless vacuum to bring it back to life.
Remember, never use a traditional vacuum cleaner to capture liquids. Use a wet and dry vacuum cleaner like a Vacmaster Multi 20.
Freshen fabrics, carpets and upholstery
Did you know that you can use your vacuum and a box of baking soda to freshen up fabrics?
Simply lightly sprinkle the baking soda over the surface and then work it in with a damp sponge. Leave it to dry for an hour or so and then carefully vacuum it.
Baking soda is a natural abrasive that helps to remove dirt. You’ll be amazed at how much brighter the fabric looks.
