How do you store your glass tumblers?

I never understand why some people store glasses upside down. Any lingering smells will be trapped and the rim is the easiest part to get damaged.

Once you’ve washed and dried, always keep them right side up, and never stack good glasses.

A handy baking tip

Next time you’re baking, after taking the tins from the oven, place them on a damp tea towel for five minutes before turning out onto the cooling rack. Your sponges will emerge much more easily…and your tins will be much less messy!

An easy way to clean under the fridge

Yes, we’re all supposed to pull out the fridge regularly to clean behind, but how many of us do? A good halfway house is to cover a broom handle with a damp cloth or clean old sock, secure with a rubber band and have a good old delve – you might be amazed at what you’ll unearth!

Keep your washing up cloth smelling sweet

If you have a dishwasher, chances are you’ll be using it most days.

An easy way to keep your washing-up cloths, brushes and sponges fresh and free from bugs is to stick all those bits and bobs on the top shelf every time you run a cycle.

Don’t chuck that lonely sock…

Where do all those odd socks go?  Similarly, why does a pair wear out at different rates from each other?

Don’t throw away the single one left…instead stick your hand inside and use it for cleaning a particularly mucky area, then throw away afterwards.

Baking trays gone rusty?

Don’t chuck them away.

Give the surfaces a good scrub with a Brillo pad or scourer with lots of detergent until the rust is gone.

After you’ve done your baking, wipe the surface over with a very light coating of vegetable oil on some kitchen paper, then store in plastic bags to keep the dust off.
