Keep a clean dish cloth

The clue’s in the nose: if it smells, it’ll be heaving with germs and each time you use it you’ll be spreading them about very nicely.

It needs to go in the washing machine, and on a 60 degree wash if possible.

Grease stains on clothes?

Sometimes a grease mark on a garment doesn’t come out in the wash. And once it’s washed, it’s set in.

For an effective pre-laundry treatment, squirt a dot of Fairy Liquid on the dampened stain, rub fabric to fabric and wash in the machine as normal.

For ground-in greyness on shirt collars and cuffs, rub a wet bar of soap along the marks before popping in the machine.

What’s helped you get through Lockdown?

Hello,

hasn’t it been a very horrid time for all of us during lockdown – I spent my time painting – but I’d like to know what you did to get you through?

And I’ve teamed up with a company I know to provide a prize of £500 and 6 months free Lyprinol Original if you win.

Why Lyprinol? Because I’ve found it a great help to ease joint pain due to inflammation. I’m using it and I’m giving you the chance to try some.

All you have to do is go to and then enter the form, below and tell me what has got you through lockdown. In my case my painting has been a lifesaver and really helped me. Here are some examples.

Now – here for the technical bits! This competition is only open to UK residents who are 40 years old or older. It takes 30 seconds to enter, so hit the link below and enter now.

Good luck and stay safe!              

Electric toothbrush playing up?

If your electric toothbrush starts whimpering instead of buzzing, get an emery board and rub the top off and all around the spindle – chances are that’ll clear the blockage and sort it!

What type of laundry detergent to use?

Non-bio is best for general laundry and items that need to be washed at a higher temperature such as sheets and towels.

Bio contains enzymes that digest food and fat stains, and works best at 40C (anything higher kills the enzyme). Great for kids’ clothes. Don’t use on silk or wool as it can weaken the fibres.

Some people reckon that bio detergents can irritate skin, but there is no hard evidence to suggest this is true – it’s thought that it’s more likely to be the perfume in the detergent. If someone in your household has eczema, try adding an extra rinse or two to the cycle.

Laundry balls In my experience, if your items are stained, the balls are pretty useless at removing them.

Spend less time cleaning!

Set a stopwatch and go for it – be faster and more efficient. And only clean an item or surface if it needs it.

Get teenagers to take responsibility for their own rooms and changing beds. As long as someone else does it, they’ll be happy to let that continue.

Keep those critters away!

Buy small quantities of flour, nuts and sugar, and store them in sealed plastic boxes.

That way, you have more chance of staying free of weevils and flour moths.

Quieten down a noisy washing machine

If your machine is particularly noisy and located in the kitchen, it can be a nuisance. Sort this by standing the machine on a carpet offcut – things will get a whole lot calmer around the place!

Deep-fat fryer exterior in a terrible state?

Put about a cup of soda crystals (DriPak, about £1 from most supermarkets) in 500ml warm water and just rub away – soon the fat will dissolve.

You’d think with that sort of power, they would be toxic. Not so: they contain no harmful chemicals, enzymes or phosphates – plus they’re totally biodegradable.
