Vacuum Cleaner Bag Deodorizer

A vacuum cleaner bag deodorizer is a relatively new concept for an age old problem.  For those of us who still use a vacuum that requires a bag, this may be the new trick to solve a old problem. A vacuum cleaner bag deodorizer is easy to use, inexpensive and effective.

Vacuum Cleaner Bag Deodorizer Information

The deodorizers are individually wrapped, and sold in packs of 10 to 12 for around $10 per pack. Each tablet is designed to last the life of your vacuum cleaner bag under regular use.

The vacuum cleaner bag deodorizer itself is about 2 inches in diameter, and just a 1/8th of an inch thick. Do not open the individual package until ready for use. You can store the deodorizers in a cool, dry place like a closet.


It’s easy to use the vacuum cleaner bag deodorizer. Simply open on of the individually wrapped packs. You can either crumble the disk and vacuum it up, where it will remain until you change the vacuum bag. You can also insert the tab directly into the vacuum bag when you’re putting a new bag on the vacuum. Again, the deodorizer is designed to last the life of the bag under regular use.

Make Your Own Vacuum Cleaner Bag Deodorizer

  • First, drip several drops of  lavender or cinnamon essential oil onto a cotton ball, cotton square or even a bit of tissue! Whatever you have on hand already! About 10-15 drops is probably what you are looking to get onto your cotton ball.
  • Then you will see that you have a very fine smelling piece of cotton!
  • Then just stick this piece of cotton into your vacuum bag.  I do this for each vacuum bag change! You will notice a nice and pleasant scent, while at the same time deodorizing while smelling good!

Here are some guidelines on the most effective vacuum cleaning methods.

  • Don’t rush things. Experts say that 80% of a vacuum job’s effectiveness comes when pulled back as opposed to pushed forward.
  • Vacuum in multiple directions to loosen dirt and other contaminants and keep the carpets and rugs from looking worn.
  • Check your vacuum cleaner’s belts and brush bars regularly for trapped hairs and clean accordingly.
  • Use a HEPA-type bag or filter if you can, as they do a good job of containing the finer particles of dirt.

Some experts warn that certain vacuum cleaning machines and improper techniques can be hazardous to your health. All of them release dust and allergens back into the air during use, but machines equipped with HEPA (high efficiency particle air) filters will release less dust, allergens, and bacteria into the air than those that do not use them. In general, these filter types trap more contaminants than they release, and many manufacturers claim that HEPA filters eliminate 99.9% of bacteria, pollen, and dander from the air.
