My cashmere cardi bargain from a while back was covered in bobbles. Of course I could pick them off one by one, but they were like a rash!

Then I came across the wonderful battery-operated Lint Shaver from Russel that removes pills and fuzz effortlessly;

Mould removal

If the grouting in your bathroom is covered in mould, but you don’t want to use chemical sprays on it, douse in vodka instead.

Leave to soak for a good 15 minutes and then scrub off – you should be left mould-free.

Grubs are the culprits as they tunnel through the wood while they feed, then as adults they fly away, leaving behind pinhole exit marks.

If you think your furniture might be affected, treat as quickly as possible with a specialist solution from hardware shops – you don’t want any structural wood in your home to be attacked.

Ivory needs to be exposed to daylight so it can bleach naturally and stay creamy, so best to use daily.

Hand-wash in soapy water and dry immediately as water can seep into the joints and soften the glue that attaches the handles.
