Suck it up!

Is it just me, or do all vacuum cleaners smell the same after you use 'em a couple times?

We recently got a new vacuum cleaner, and after we used it two or three times, it had the same smell as the old one. You know... that "vacuum cleaner" smell. I can't think of anything to compare it to, but if it's not just me, you'll understand what I'm talking about.

Every vacuum cleaner I've ever had my whole entire life has had that smell. And no, I don't mean the actual machine itself. I mean the smell that emanates when you're running it. Kind of a stale dusty smell. I guess that makes sense, since it's sucking up all the dust and dirt and dander from the carpets and floors. Kinda gross now that I think about it.

Does your vacuum cleaner have that specific smell? Or maybe it's just if you have dogs? I don't know. I just wondered.

Oh... and hell to the no on those perfumed powder carpet sprinkle-on products. They make my eyes burn and my face itch. I'd rather deal with the regular vacuum cleaner smell. That really might be just me though.

(See.... less then a month between blog posts [barely]. Not much of a post, I know... but it was on my mind. I told ya things might get loosey goosey around here! LOL!)
