That jar of honey hiding at the back of your kitchen cupboard will never go off, but it may have crystallised. Return it to a nice runny consistency by sticking in the microwave on medium for a minute or so (remember to remove any metal lid first!).
A steam cleaner is more relevant than ever. There’s nothing like a good burst of scalding steam to give you the feeling that every last trace of germy grime is being shifted. I tried out the Thane H20 HD steam cleaner—it’s proven to kill 99 percent of germs, is suitable for both hard surfaces and carpets (as well as a great garment steamer)—and was very impressed with the results. It can be converted from hand held to full height in seconds and costs £99.96; available from https://h2o-hd.thanedirect.co.uk.
Isn’t it annoying when you’re in the mood to bake, go to the brown sugar packet and it’s rock hard! Prevent this by decanting the sugar the day you buy it into a plastic container and pop in a couple of marshmallows to preserve softness.
