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.

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!

Keep those critters away!

Buy small quantities of flour, nuts and sugar, and store them in sealed plastic boxes.

That way, you have more chance of staying free of weevils and flour moths.

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

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.

Quick poison ivy rash treatment

If you experience poison ivy rash, wipe the affected area with vodka, which is proven to reduce the itching sensation.

Fluff up your towels

Towels go hard usually because people use too much fabric conditioner.

What happens is that over time the surplus never gets rinsed properly, and starts to build up…which ends up making the dried towels stiff – ironic, isn’t it?

The best thing to do is to stop the machine before the final rinse and add a cup of clear vinegar to the drum. No, you won’t have the lingering waft of eau de fish and chips!

Trade secret: a vinegar rinse is what keeps hotel towels soft.

Hot weather getting to you?

Stick a bunch of plump black grapes in the freezer for a few hours, and when they’re nice and solid, pop them into your mouth like sweeties.

Guilt-free and gorgeous!
