One of my favorite things to do when walking our dogs, Krinkles and Bear-Bear, is to literally stop and smell the roses. Our surrounding neighborhood, lovingly named, “The Tree Section”, enjoys a vast array of old-growth trees (some over 100 years old), plants and lots and lots of flowers.

That being said, when they’re in bloom, (whoosh!) the pollen can really fly!

Frankly, it’s a small price to pay.

Still, the need to dust and vacuum inside is almost a daily chore during this time of year. Thanks to today’s sponsor, ARM & HAMMER™, I’m able to present today’s post and video that will give you one, super simple tip to help you capture allergens (and glitter!) and keep your vacuum running its best.

One Tip: Simply replace your vacuum bag and filter!

Crafting can create crafting debris

Besides glitter and other crafting debris, it’s important to vacuum up allergy-inducing particles including pet dander, grass, ragweed pollen, household fibers and dust. If it’s been a while since you’ve changed your vacuum bag or unclogged your filter, your machine may not perform at its best. Less suction power will leave allergens, dust and pet fur behind.

If your vacuum is not picking up dirt as it should, follow this one tip

    Great post! My vacuum is so so important in keeping my home (relatively) allergy-free so this really resonated with me. I use these tips to keep my vacuum running well, and they mention the importance of changing your bag too. I definitely learned that the hard way when I once pulled out way too full of a bag and ended up spilling all of the dust and dirt I had just vacuumed up all over the floor. Change those bags!
