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.

And here’s a tip from one of our subscribers – travelling REALLY light

from Rene Wyndham

If you want to travel really light, the most useful items to pack are several cotton pareos (large cloths). You can use them to lie on, on the beach,- as towels,- as curtains where necessary, -as a skirt to tie round you, as a summer dress,- as a bag for carrying if you tie the corners together, as a shawl if it gets cooler, as a scarf – the possibilities are endless!

A few clever time saving tips

Sweep your front path or porch as part of your regular cleaning routine – trailing in leaves and mud on shoes will only create extra work.

When you apply a cleaning spray, leave it a few minutes while you clean something else – during that time the spray will have started to work and marks will wipe off more easily.

Do a little each day – even 10 minutes extra every morning or evening means you’ll have more chance to keep on top of things and will free up more time at the weekends.

When washing walls, start at the bottom and work upwards so that any dirty trickles will get absorbed by the already wet surface.

Bring that mouldy tent back to life

If you’ve got the tent out for the first time since last year, and it’s flecked with mould and smells musty, don’t just throw it away. And don’t stick it in the washing machine either because if it has taped seams they’ll get damaged.

What you need to do is erect the tent in the garden and vacuum off the mould spores.

Now sponge over a diluted solution of Milton (about 1 tbsp per litre of warm water). Then follow up with a tent cleaner such as Nikwax Tech Wash.

You’ll also need a waterproofer (Nikwax Tent & Gear Solarproof); instructions are on the packs. Happy camping!

Perfect windows quickly

If you’re washing windows and the outside is thick with dust and cobwebs, remove the worst with a dustpan and brush, otherwise once you start washing you’ll create a sea of mud.

And choose a cloudy day – heat dries liquid too quickly and will leave you with a streaky finish.

Clear out and clean up

You may not be planning a major autumn clean, but a rainy Sunday is a good time to declutter kitchen drawers.

Locate all the duplicate peelers, corkscrews, tin openers and the like. Choose your favourite and take the others to the charity shop.

No more smelly trainers!

Cosmetic oil bubbles and dropper with oil on white background. Abstract drops of skin care oil.

Tea tree oil, available from chemists and health food shops, works a treat on smelly shoes.

Just sprinkle a few drops on to the insole. Tea tree is anti-bacterial and anti-fungal, so will help with any foot infections too.
