How to Use a Fresh Scents Bag in a Vacuum

Fresh Scents Scented Sachets are small paper bags filled with scented deodorizing powder. The sachets come in a variety of fragrances but with very little instruction. They are designed to be multipurpose and help eliminate odors almost anywhere you put them. To reduce the odor from dirt and bacteria buildup inside a vacuum cleaner canister or bag, you can place the Fresh Scents bag or powder directly into your vacuum cleaner's canister or bag.

You only need a small amount of Fresh Scents powder to deodorize small vacuums.

Place Fresh Scents Bag in Your Vacuum Cleaner's Bag or Canister

Step 1

Open the top of your vacuum cleaner's empty bag or canister according to the manufacturer's instructions.

Step 2

Place the Fresh Scents bag into the bag or canister.

Step 3

Close your vacuum cleaner's canister or insert the bag according to the manufacturer's instructions.

Step 4

Vacuum as usual until the vacuum's bag or canister is full. As you vacuum, the pleasing odor of the Fresh Scent's bag will permeate the air.

Step 5

Remove the Fresh Scents bag when you empty the vacuum's bag or canister. If the Fresh Scents bag still smells good, dust it off and place it in the empty canister or fresh bag. If not, place a new sachet in the canister or new vacuum bag.

Vacuum Up Fresh Scents Powder

Step 1

Tap the bottom of the Fresh Scents bag on a table or other hard surface to shift the powder to the bottom. This will prevent powder in the top from spilling out when you open it.

Step 2

Cut the top of the bag off to open it.

Step 3

Empty the contents of the Fresh Scents bag onto the carpet. You will likely not need all 7 oz. For large vacuums, start with half (you can always add more later). For small, hand-held vacuums, a quarter of the bag is often enough.

Step 4

Fold the Fresh Scents bag over, tape it closed and place it in a plastic bag to store it until you need it again.

Step 5

Vacuum up the Fresh Scents powder. As you vacuum normally with the loose powder inside the bag or canister, the scent will permeate the air. When the vacuum's bag or canister is full, empty the contents of the bag or canister along with the powder. Vacuum up more Fresh Scents powder when the canister is empty or the new bag is installed.
