Small nails, screws, bolts, needle, fish hook, earrings, earring backings, Christmas ornament hooks...fill in the blank with any difficult-to-find item with which you have struggled over the years. On carpeting or hard floors; behind a piece of furniture or in what should be plain sight; the aforementioned just a have a way of playing chameleon.
The affects of a lost miniature can range from minor annoyance to downright dangerous, so finding it can be a must. No sweat...get out the vacuum! What? The vacuum? "But I don't want to suck it up, I want to find it," you might be thinking. Right, find itwith the vacuum.
Ladies, you most certainly have all you need in your drawer. Fellas, single fellas, you likely will have to make a trip to the store - or maybe not. I dont know. I dont know what you're into. If you've got a set of these hanging around, I'm not judging you.
Locating that lost trinket is as easy as your vacuum hose and pair of pantyhose.
Spread the pantyhose over the hole of your vacuum hose and rubber band it in place. Just start up the vacuum and run the hose all over. You might be surprised at all the other stuff you pick up, but you should find what you're looking for.
