Hey guys,

I was using some Arm & Hammer Odor Remover (Link: ARM & HAMMER® Plus OxiClean® Carpet & Room Odour Eliminator ? Extra Strength ) and vacuumed it up in a separate room from the budgie.

I was wondering if there is any risk of particles from the carpet cleaner around the budgie? I am assuming the product is not safe. Should I be emptying the vacuum bag after each use with this stuff? (Do vacuums distribute particles in the air?)

I agree with Kate -- plain ol' baking soda is SO much better than anything with additives and/or fragrances.

To answer your question about vacuums dispersing particles into the air - it depends on the type vacuum. Those with micro-filter bags don't disperse as much as those with 'regular' bags.

There are some bag-less vacuums with that are supposedly "sealed" to prevent redistribution of dust, pollen, etc. particles. Those should be emptied each time you vacuum.

If you have a vacuum with bags, then the bag should be completely changed frequently and definitely after using odor eliminators of any sort on your carpet.
