I have, from a very young age, absolutely hated the sound of a vacuum, whether I'm shoving it across carpet or some other surface to clean. It's an aversion that stems from hating loud noises in general. Thankfully, as an adult I've come up with a way to mask the sound of a vacuum while reaping its dust-eliminating rewards.
My trick? Seriously serious noise-canceling headphones on my head piping in podcasts or indie music while I zip that vacuum over my rugs or my blinds. It's a simple fix, but it's one that's made me go from dreading (and putting off) vacuuming to actually looking forward to it, knowing I can catch up on a favorite podcast and end up with a dirt-free floor.
