Earrings, little toys, and basically anything tiny run the risk of getting sucked up into oblivion by your vacuum. Use this hack from BuzzFeed Nifty to find your little lost items.
What you need:
*A pair of old nylons
*A vacuum with a hose attachment
*A rubber band or hair tie
Cut off the foot portion of a pair of old nylons.
Remove any end attachments from your vacuum hose.
Stretch the nylons over the mouth of the vacuum hose, and tie securely with a hair tie or rubber band.
You can find a lost earring or earring back, get objects out of hard-to-reach places, or just do a pass to make sure you don't vacuum up anything important!
