About: Now I am a retired person, who enjoys life and making small things to pass the time keep myself busy.


This is a very effective and powerful room air sprayer. It uses a portable vacuum cleaner or a

car vacuum cleaner with a built in blower. You can use any type of perfume, deodrant, moth

balls, ODONIL (wax perfume packet for toilets- sold in INDIA) shaving lotion, rose water etc.

Liquid perfume works best.

Once when I was out of room freshner this idea came to mind. Hope you enjoy it.

    This could be dangerous, especially if the fragrance containes
    a propellent like butane or  a perfume or aftershave contains
    alcohol , as the fumes will possible escape out of the bag
    or pass through the motor, where there is potientely a source of iginition

    hope the info helps ... Paul

    Great job, but I don't think I'd be willing to use a vacuum to spray for a few seconds in my house. Maybe for a huge room... *shrug* anyways, good job -

    Very true......My house is large and I got fed up of using commercial room freshener as they are expensive. This job is meant for large houses with big rooms. Thanks.

    You could set something like this up to a switch or timer, then place it in you air duct system close to the fan. It would spread the fragrance evenly throughout the house, as long as all vents were open. Then you wouldn't even have to carry it about the house.
