Introduction: A Smaller Sucker-Vacuum Attachment
Well, this sucks……you have some small device or mechanism that needs cleaning and your vacuum cleaner just does not fit the space. Further, the airflow cannot be directed where it is really needed. Cleaning a sewing machine might be one of those times. Or, sucking cat hair out of your laptop keyboard. You can’t just use canned air to sweep the fuzz away, as it only drives it further into the machine. So….it’s time to make something better.
If you use contact lens soaking solution you’ll probably have little bottles like this. If not, there are lots of supplies that come in little plastic bottles. The advantage of these, as shown, is that they fit the standard home vacuum cleaner hose just fine.
Step 1: What We Need to Begin:
First, start with an empty container. Pry off the squirt tip, leaving the top open. Cut off the bottom with a knife or utility scissors. That’s it. You are done !
Slide on and begin cleaning those tight spots. You might even add some poly or vinyl tubing to make the tool even more useful.
