If you roast a chicken and don’t have enough time afterwards to boil the carcass for stock, wrap it well, stick in the freezer and boil it another day

Straight from the freezer – when you have more time!

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.

Chase those ants out of your house!

Are you sharing your kitchen with an army of ants right now?

They love sweet things to take back to the nest to feed the queen and babies. They won’t spread disease, but they’re annoying nonetheless.

The easiest way to deal with them is to find the source (look for small piles of earth pellets or check out the ants’ route) and pour some boiling water over. Follow up with a few puffs from an insecticidal powder (check it treats ants).

If you don’t like the idea of killing them, a sprinkling of cayenne, scented talc or peppermint oil along the skirting boards near the outside door should send them next door!

When your carbon steel wok develops a tacky surface…

Heat the wok over the hob until very hot, then remove from the heat.

Add a tablespoon of salt, then about a teaspoon of vegetable oil.

Using a scrunched up piece of kitchen towel, give the surface a good scrub (careful not to burn yourself) until it feels as if most of the gummy residue has come off the pan and onto the towel.

Rinse under the hot tap.

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 removal

If the grouting in your bathroom is covered in mould, but you don’t want to use chemical sprays on it, douse in vodka instead.

Leave to soak for a good 15 minutes and then scrub off – you should be left mould-free.
