Our cleaning and maintenance team are full of great ideas for cleaning the house and home. And the best thing its all on the cheap!
For any burnt bits on the plate take a piece of aluminium foil. Roll it up into a soft ball than take the iron to the hottest setting with steam off and iron the ball. A chemical reaction causes the nasty stuff to come off!
And don’t get burnt!
Skirting boards collect all sorts and a simple vacuum may not be enough. By using a simple wipe (baby or cleaning agent based) this can add a hint of freshness to your home. Just insert your fingers along the indents of the wood and glide to a cleaner skirt!
Kids toys can be a nightmare to keep clean! Use lingerie bags to clean kids toys in the dishwasher. On a ‘rinse’ mode should be enough to clear the dust.
Despite the claims of Barry Scott this is a more organic approach to tackling lime scale. Half a lemon sliced in half and used to wipe around the affected area will bring a zesty freshness to your bathroom!
Red Wine Spills

Rub a small amount of olive oil on stainless steel then buff up for a streak-free shine. Don’t waste it though, your salad loves a splash or two!
