Vacuum Fix

Martha Stewart Living, February 2004

Here's a quick solution for the next time the vacuum cleaner has something stubborn, such as a piece of string or hair, stuck in its rollers: Remove the offending object with a seam ripper, which will cut easily through knots and tangles. Be sure to unplug the vacuum before clearing the obstruction.
