Turn it round once or twice a year to even out the wear.

Wave goodbye to woodworm

Is woodworm a problem but you don’t like using chemical insecticides?

Try rubbing a clove of garlic along the grain of the wood. Seems the worms aren’t too fond of the taste of garlic!

Indentation in a chair that’s covered in short, velvety pile?

Try a very weak solution of fabric conditioner and warm water (a few drops per litre of water). Apply using a small sponge (don’t overwet), then gently stroke the surface with a folded towel to try to lift and realign the pile.

Rinse and blot with kitchen paper, then blot with a terry towel (or use a cool hairdryer). Leave overnight.

How to look after your glass-topped table

It seems a good idea when new…then it’s an absolute bind to keep it looking good.

The surface will scratch easily so protective coasters and cloths are a good idea.

Clean smears with a damp cloth wrung out in warm soapy water and buff dry.

Any chips or scratches can sometimes be filed down with the finest grade of sandpaper.

Sofa covered in pet hair?

As a nation we love our pets, but sometimes their hairs on the sofa and chairs can be a real pain. If you don’t want to be constantly vacuuming them up, a quick inbetween solution is to don a pair of rubber gloves, run your hands quickly under the tap and take them over the hairs, from one side of the sofa to the other.

The hair will obediently be pushed along by the rubber gloves, then all you do is gather up the clumps and put them in the bin.

How to keep tops of kitchen cupboards clean

Do your kitchen cupboards reach almost but not quite to the ceiling?

The tops will take on that nasty, hard-to-shift combination of grease and dust.

Save yourself cleaning time by laying down sheets of newspaper and every so often remove and replace with new sheets.
