Vacuuming, besides being one of those words that I cannot seem to spell correctly ever, is a very therapeutic activity along with serging, beading and handsewing. However I always end up vacuuming in my ders (undergarments) and I suppose I sew and serge in my ders at times but it's not necessary. But I think it has to do with the fact that my body temperature fluctuates constantly, so starting out in my ders keeps me cool from the beginning. Just a tid bit of food for thought. Maybe you get extremely warm while vacuuming and I have just solved your problem or maybe you are ahead of the game and you vacuum in your birthday suit (NAKED!). To each their own.
