Keep your bathroom free of mould

If you don’t have an extractor fan, try to open the window as much as possible after a shower or bath for a good airflow, otherwise you’ll end up with condensation and mould (as well as being unsightly, it’s bad for asthma sufferers).

If you’re having a bath, run the cold tap first, followed by the hot, which will reduce steam (safer, too, if children are around).

For a mouldy shower curtain, machine-wash on a wool cycle with a capful of bleach added to the drawer; rehang straight from the machine.
