When you need help getting gunk out of the plughole

Drain Weasel will do the job for you: the disposable ‘microhooks’ on the head get a hold of and grab up any discarded hair (which is usually what’s blocking the drain).

Then just a flick of the quick-release handle ensures you don’t have to go near the nasty clump!

It’s never too early to start decluttering…

I helped my friend move house recently. She’s efficient…but also a secret hoarder. What a job! Every cupboard was stuffed, and the kitchen spice drawer rammed with Safeway jars (the brand disappeared in 2004!). A lesson: it’s never too early to start decluttering…

Why you should deep-clean your carpets

If you suffer from allergies, things can get pretty miserable if you’re not on top of the dust around the house.

Carpet care specialists Rug Doctor did a survey that discovered that while three-quarters of us think our home is clean, around half of us have never deep- cleaned our carpets. And did you know that an average family of four sheds over 3lb of skin a year!

So just walking around a carpeted house will cause dust and dust mite droppings to become airborne, which could trigger an asthma attack.

Vacuuming will go only so far…so hire a deep cleaning machine and get those carpets done soon!
