    Stinky Vacuums

    Ever notice even if you use clean bags a vacuum can still have some odors to it. I have torn them down and washed the insides and 2 weeks later you start to catch that odor again. I use laundry crystals, suck a small handful up in the hose and the whole room becomes nice and scented.
