I'm a cleaning fan – 5p hack will make your home smell amazing when hoovering, it's so easy & will last for ages | The Sun

A CLEANING enthusiast has shared an easy trick for getting rid of that dusty aroma when hoovering your home – and it's so easy too.

Beauty fan Amelia Gartner took to TikTok to reveal how she gives her home a lovely refreshing scent whenever using her vacuum cleaner.

According to Amelia, the answer is easy and it only calls for two common household ingredients – a cotton pad, as well as a few drops of essential oil.

Sharing the cleaning tip on her platform, the savvy woman said: ''This is the best hack to make your house smell amazing all the time.

''Just get yourself a cotton pad – or even a cotton wool ball – and soak it in your favourite essential oil […].''

If you've run out of this, the cleaning fanatic insisted in her video that perfume or even vanilla essence worked just as fine.

Once the cotton pad has completely absorbed the liquid, grab a pair of scissors and cut it in two.

''Then take them and put them in the barrel of your vacuum cleaner, so wherever it sucks them up.

''Out your vacuum cleaner back together and just start vacuuming.''

Amelia explained that the scent will come out through the air vents at the top and your house ''will smell like whatever your favourite scent is''.

''Dont judge how dirty my vaccum or my clothes are [sic],'' she chuckled in the caption.

Fellow cleaning enthusiasts on the platform raced to comments where dozens thanked Amelia.


One pet lover was keen to give the hack a go, writing: ''I might try this cause my vacuum smells like dog from the amount of fur I vacuum up.''

Another advised: ''Spray perfume on the filter, leave it dry 1h and put in. Works 10x better for aromatics.''

However, not everyone was sold, as a few sceptics also chimed in.

''Nope. Dyson cost big [money]. Don’t want to stuff it up,'' a person said.

''Be careful if you have pets,'' a fourth warned, with another explaining that essential oils can be ''toxic'' to our furry friends.
