Straps on your bra start to slip?

Isn’t it annoying when the straps on your bra start to slip more? What I do is adjust straps to the perfect setting, then put a few stitches in to keep everything in place forever!

Get rid of fluff and bobbles from jumpers

Carefully and gently take a used razor along the surface, as if you were shaving your legs, and the bobbles will come away immediately.

Then put some sticky tape over the bits and hey presto a smooth surface again!

When your carbon steel wok develops a tacky surface…

Heat the wok over the hob until very hot, then remove from the heat.

Add a tablespoon of salt, then about a teaspoon of vegetable oil.

Using a scrunched up piece of kitchen towel, give the surface a good scrub (careful not to burn yourself) until it feels as if most of the gummy residue has come off the pan and onto the towel.

Rinse under the hot tap.

Fishy smell in the kitchen after cooking?

A great way round this is to burn a Price’s Chef’s Candle. It gives off wonderful wafts of basil, patchouli and geranium and sorted the smell very quickly.

Mould on your curtain linings?

If they’re dry clean only, the cleaner will deal with the spores but probably not the stains.

However, what you can try at home is to gather them up and take outside (so the unhealthy spores don’t spread around the room), wipe down with a solution of warm water and Ariel, then rinse with a cloth wrung out in clear vinegar.

The less time the mould has had to form, the easier it’ll be to get rid of the stains.

How to clean your duvet

Single duvets can go into the washing machine; check the label for instructions.

Any duvets larger than single normally need to be taken to the launderette but some modern machines have a very large capacity, so check first.

As long as the item goes into the drum easily and there’s a bit of space between the duvet and roof of the drum, you’ll be fine.

How to store your winter clothes

Either pack away in a spare suitcase, lidded plastic boxes, zip-up plastic bags or those storage bags that hook up to the vacuum cleaner hose to extract air and create an airtight seal (they reduce the volume to about 50 percent, are available cheaply from Argos and can be reused). Fold or roll clothes and wrap in acid-free tissue paper to prevent creasing.

When your case, box or bag is full, sprinkle the top with rosemary, lavender, bay or pieces of cedar to deter moths and other unwelcome critters. Store either on top of the wardrobe, in a drawer under the bed, in a spare room or dry loft.

Bothered by moths?

If you think have a moth problem, vacuum and wipe out the wardrobe and drawers with soapy water, getting right into the corners. Make sure you clean carpets and floors, especially under furniture and along skirting boards. And as soon as you have vacuumed, empty the bag or canister so they don’t breed in there.

An easy way to clean your barbecue

Bbq Grid With Charcoal – braai and broil

Scrunch up aluminium foil and take it back and forth across the grilling bars to get the worst off. Then scrub that part in the sink using a strong solution of soda crystals (200g to 500ml hot water)
