Glade Shake N Vac
Advantages: Pleasant smell, easy to use, masks bad odours
Disadvantages: Clogs up bagless vacuums
And it does exactly what the famous advert suggests!
I've always bought Shake n' Vac, but until recently, I only used it two or three times a year, but once I found out my town had a new Pound Shop in the centre, I went down there and found what I was looking for - Shake n' Vac for £1 per bottle!
I bought three bottles to stock up and since then I've been going back whenever my "stocks" get low.
First of all I'll start by telling you that the people who are against Shake n' Vac are wrong in my opinion, as if it is used as directed, there are no problems.
Here is how Shake n' Vac should be used:
Shake a generous, but not too generous amount of Shake n' Vac onto your carpets,
Leave for 5 minutes,
Vacuum off with preferably a bagged Vacuum Cleaner, as the fine powder can clog up the filters in some bagless machines,
And you're done - Both your carpets and your Vacuum Cleaner will now smell of the selected scent - In my case, Magnolia & Vanilla.
The scent lasts for around 24 hours in my experience, but works for about a week at keeping any bad smells at bay, by which time I've used it again.
And that scent in question is a nice strong vanilla one with a light floral background.
Now, it may only be a wee 500G bottle, but I manage to get two uses out of it.
By two uses, that covers:
My living room and kitchen have hard flooring so they aren't included. If I had carpets in those rooms then a bottle would probably just last once, but still, for £1 that isn't bad value!
If you don't have a Pound Shop locally, then you can buy Shake n' Vac from Tesco and Asda, but it will be £1.50 from Asda and £1.36 from Tesco.
That's about all I can think to say about this wonderful product.
Would I recommend it to a friend ? Yes!
I hope you've enjoyed reading my review on Shake n' Vac Magnolia & Vanilla.
Summary: Great product to freshen up your carpets every now and then!
