Mrs Hinch’s social media fans have created their own groups, dedicated to helping each other with cleaning tips and tricks. One group member asked for advice on freshening up their canister vacuum cleaner, to prevent it from “smelling awful”, and the fans came to the rescue, the tips were as follows:

Put bin freshener on top of the vacuum bag, to keep it smelling lovely. 

Washing out the filter and making sure it is fully dry.

Buying vacuum disks to freshen up your vacuum bag. 

Using extra strength Vac Air-Freshener, which reportedly smell amazing.

Put cotton wool pads, that have been soaked in lavender or perfume, inside the vacuum bag.

Adding washing beads to the vacuum bag.

Pouring essential oils or Zoflora into the bag.

Adding shake n’ vac into the baf itself.

And, finally, don’t forget to neglect the vacuum itself, wash the pipes and the fixtures as these will collect a smell overtime.
