    Smile tip for hoover bags!!


    a good thing im now doing is cut the bottom of the hoover bags then fold them back over on themselves & use some bulldog clips to hold it all shut tight,
    when full just unclip & empty!! ,no more shaking the bag to get dust out & then spliting it
    you can then reclip & reuse the bags over & over again !!!!
    sorted !!

    I got my wife to make a cloth bag with a zip for my old hoover. It stopped the filter from getting so clogged. My Hilti doesn't need bags as the filter vibrates every 15 seconds.

    Made mine out of a pillow case and some iron on Velcro. Used the plastic bit off an old bag and fixed it with fabric glue and cardboard
