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.

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.

Goo on your iron’s soleplate?

While it’s warm, rub with a nylon scourer and a little non-gel toothpaste. Wipe clean with a damp cloth. And next time you’re ironing a T-shirt with a motif that might stick, turn it inside out.

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!

A subscriber asks – The clothes are wet and full of mould

Hi Aggie, I hope you can help me. I found a bag of my summer clothes in my loft that were leaning against a stone wall. The clothes are wet and full of mould. Can you advise how I can remove the mould? Will it be killed by the washing machine? Many thanks in advance. Kathryn Douglas

Hi Kathryn
Sorry for the delay in replying. If you’ve not already done so, anything that can normally be put in the washing machine should go in there, and the mould spores will be removed.
However I’m pretty sure that the mould stains won’t come out.  The only thing that will remove those is a bleach-based product.  And you should only use bleach on whites as if used on coloureds they will remove the colour.
If I were you I\d probably chuck the whole bag out and look at getting the loft waterproofed.
Wish you well,
Aggie

Hi Aggie – here’s my tip to share with your followers

Hi Aggie Jewellery storage can be a nightmare – tangled necklaces, lost and forgotten pieces. My business partner and I had four daughters between us and lots of costume jewellery….we decided to resolve the problem and designed ‘Swag-bag – the stylish solution to jewellery storage’.

Swag-bag is designed to go over a door or inside the wardrobe. It displays all your jewellery beautifully so that accessorising is easy and time efficient. Available in 3 sizes it caters for all jewellery collections.

We launched over 10 years ago and we were shortlisted for Gift of the Year 2010 and reviewed in Good Housekeeping amongst other magazines. We have had many repeat customers over the year and thought that you might be interested to share our storage tip with your followers.

Kind regards. Sue Rutherford

Hi Aggie – here’s my tip to share with your followers

Put a dishwasher tablet in your washing machine and do a rinse cycle, just see the colour of the water! It really cleans the machine.

Make double quantities and half your work

If you’re preparing a casserole or lasagne, make double (much less than double the work) and freeze the other half for later.

The freezer’s also a great place to store food about to go past its use-by date and you know won’t be eaten before it does – that way you can cut down on waste.

An easy way to clean your barbecue

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).
