Be careful cleaning your loo seat

Some loo cleaners can damage permanently.

And if it gets colour spots or the wood becomes bleached, there’s no easy remedy.

Clean the seat with plain water and a microfibre cloth (pop in the washing machine afterwards).

How to look after your bath

You might think an enamel bath would withstand any amount of elbow grease, but you’d be wrong – the shiny surface is actually very delicate and you should clean only with either a microfibre cloth or a product that bears the logo of the Vitreous Enamel Association (Cif, for example, carries the mark).

If you scrub too hard, you’ll remove the surface and thereafter it takes on stains. And re-enamelling a bath is costly.

Mouldy shower curtain?

Don’t give up on it and chuck it out.

Machine-wash on a wool cycle with some towels and rehang in position straight from the machine.

Keep on top of household clutter

 Adopt the mantra:

One in, one out’.

For every new item you bring into your home, look for one existing one you can either throw or recycle.

Get those taps gleaming!

When cleaning the bathroom, finish off by polishing taps and shining the basin and mirror with towels that you’re about to put in the washing machine.

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!

How to avoid mould in your bathroom

If you don’t have an extractor fan, try to open the window as much as possible after a shower or bath for a good airflow.

If you’re having a bath, run the cold tap first, followed by the hot, which will reduce steam (safer, too, if children are around).

For a mouldy shower curtain, machine-wash on a wool cycle with a capful of bleach added to the drawer; rehang straight from the machine.

Limescale licked!

There’s no need to resort to expensive, strong products to attack limescale.

Much better to stick to homemade remedies, which are just as effective, and a lot cheaper.

If your chrome showerhead is caked with scale, unscrew it, and steep overnight in a bowl containing half clear vinegar and half warm water. In the morning the scale will flake off and the head will only need a little rub with a cloth. Note: don’t use on special metal finishes, as vinegar can damage.

For scale in an enamel bath or porcelain sink, dampen a pumice stone and rub away at the mark. Don’t worry about scratching: the pumice is hard enough to deal with the scale but soft enough not to damage the surfaces

Avoid those embarrassing marks in the loo …

 

Next time you’re at a friend’s house and need to go for a sit-down in the smallest room, first lay down about 3-4 sheets of loo paper on top of the water.

Then you can freely go into action in the secure knowledge that, post-flush, there will be no stains left behind because everything will have landed on the paper!

(That tip is courtesy of my younger son.)
