Slip these fragrant sachets into your vacuum bag and enjoy the pleasant fragrance when you vacuum the floor. They’re easy to make using just a few simple ingredients and best part is: they don’t make a mess!

How To Make Vacuum Bag Sachets

1/4 cup dried lavender*
1/4 cup dried rosemary*
1 TBS cloves*
1/2 cup cedar shavings
1 TBS baking soda
5 to 7 drops of essential oil (your choice)
Pantyhose or cheesecloth squares
*Or use 1/2 cup of your favorite herbal blend
  • Mix ingredients together then store in a sealed glass container for 1 week.
  • Make plain sachets or pouches using pantyhose or cheesecloth that will hold three tablespoons of the fragrant mix, fill with mix then tie or sew shut.
  • Store ready-made sachets in a sealed glass jar until needed.
Tip: Instead of using the above mix, try using your favorite potpourri blend, add a few extra drops of essential oils if needed.
To Use:
  • Pop a sachet into the new vacuum bag each time you change it. When you vacuum, the fragrance from the sachet will fill the room.
  • If you’d rather skip the sachet, simply add a few tablespoons of the fragrant mix into the new vacuum bag when changing it.
  • Use a fresh sachet each time you change vacuum bags.
  • If you prefer a stronger fragrance, add a few more drops of essential oil to the sachet pouch before placing in the vacuum bag.
