  • Rather than throw perfectly good but old bed sheets in the bin, soak in bicarbonate of soda and white vinegar. Guaranteed to bring new life into them.
  • Use rubber gloves to lift pet hair from sofas, curtains and even the dog’s bed itself. The friction created by the rubber attracts the hair and lifts it off straight away.
  • Clean your oven with a bicarbonate of soda solution. This will make it a much less time consuming task. Spray on a solution of bicarbonate of soda and water and leave overnight. Simply wipe clean the next day.
  • When it comes to your fridge, you need a toothbrush and toothpaste. Scrub the stains with a little toothpaste on your toothbrush and hey presto, one clean fridge.
  • Have you noticed your toilet brush beginning to smell? Then keep it smelling fresh and super clean by pouring a pine based solution at the bottom. Perfect for disinfecting the toilet at the same time too.
  • Mix baking soda, hydrogen peroxide and dish soap to create the ultimate cooker top cleaner. Spray on the solution, give it a scrub and leave for a few minutes before easily wiping away.
  • Is your mattress starting to pong? Sprinkle it with baking soda, leave for a few minutes and then hoover it up. If you’re looking to get rid of the stains, you’ll need a mix of peroxide, dish soap and salt.
  • Clean your showerhead with white vinegar. Fill a sandwich bag with white vinegar, lift it onto your showerhead and tie in place. Leave overnight and in the morning you’ll find a dirt and grime free showerhead.
  • Fill your home with fresh scent by vacuuming up a cotton ball that’s been soaked in your favourite fragrance for a long lasting scent every time you vacuum.
  • Clean your blinds with the help of food tongs wrapped in micro fibre cloths. Perfect for cleaning each slat and much more effective than feather dusters.
  • Using a window squeegee on your shower glass and tiles, every time after you shower to ensure water marks stay away.
  • Struggle to clean that area between the water tank and the toilet seat? Use a flat head screwdriver and a baby wipe.
