When the door seals on your fridge-freezer turn black

Milton Sterilising Fluid. The black marks are mould, so a mild disinfectant is needed in order to kill the spores.

Dilute the fluid according to instructions and wipe the seals, paying attention to the folds and allow to air-dry – no need to rinse. Repeat every month or so. If this doesn’t work, maybe it’s time to replace the doors as the seals may be starting to perish. Check that the room where the appliances are stored is free of damp.

Keeping your carpets clean

If you have a lot of foot traffic in your home and like the carpets to be kept clean, fresh and clear of stains, an electric carpet washer is very easy to use and move around.

Rotating brushes lift dirt and stains, and powered jets pump the cleaning solution deep into the pile to remove any trapped dirt, odours and allergens. It’s also good for stairs, upholstery and car seats.

Take note if you have an open fire

If you use your open fire often over the cooler months, you should have it cleaned every year. In theory you could do it yourself, but you risk damaging the lining, particularly in an older house.

Contact The National Association of Chimney Sweeps (www.nacs.org.uk) for recommendations. Once it’s been swept, you might want to try a maintenance product such as a Chimney Cleaning Log. Although it doesn’t cancel out the need to sweep, it softens and removes tar deposits and reduces the risk of a chimney fire.

Another tip for reducing tar build-up: burn well-seasoned wood and/or smokeless fuel.

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…

Chinese Asian cuisine. Empty wok with wooden handles isolated on white background. 3d illustration

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.
