Why you should deep-clean your carpets

If you suffer from allergies, things can get pretty miserable if you’re not on top of the dust around the house.

Carpet care specialists Rug Doctor did a survey that discovered that while three-quarters of us think our home is clean, around half of us have never deep- cleaned our carpets. And did you know that an average family of four sheds over 3lb of skin a year!

So just walking around a carpeted house will cause dust and dust mite droppings to become airborne, which could trigger an asthma attack.

Vacuuming will go only so far…so hire a deep cleaning machine and get those carpets done soon!

Lovely smooth bread sauce with your turkey

I needed breadcrumbs for bread sauce and the processor left big chunks, no matter how much I tried. I made the sauce with the lumpy bread, and at the last moment smoothed it out with my stick blender. Perfect!

eating less meat?

Many of us are now eating less meat, but do lentils and other pulses sometimes leave you bloated and, frankly, full of wind? A good way to counter this is to include fennel seeds (whole or crushed) in your cooking – they’re a great digestion aid.
