    I think "Hoover" might have that one, as in "I'm hoovering the rug in the living room."  I would love to hear about some older ones.  Anyone?

    I've heard people use Swiffer and Febreeze as verbs...I'm Swiffering the floor or I need to Febreeze my house.

    To xerox is one of those old ones, but I am not sure if it is older than to hoover.
