How to fix a stinky vacume cleaner?
Just wondering if there is anyway to get the stink out of an old vacume. Got one from a friend about a year ago, but haven't gotten around to checking it out until this weekend while doing some spring cleaning upstairs. It has a brand new bag, so figuring it's probably in the hoses or something. No carpet up there, so I usually just dust mop the hardwood floors.
While doing some spring cleaning, wanted to vacume out the window sills etc. WOW....not sure what the vacume had been used for but it smelled like something dead it in when I started it up. Thinking it's probably just old dog hair. She has two furbabies.
It's a great old round canister type HOOVER and I'd hate to toss it if I don't have to. Thanks a MIL in advance for any and all help. (LOL.....I just recently found this place and am already ADDICTED. So don't be surprised if it seems like my name is popping up on here a ton these days.)
