How to stop your floor mop from going hard

Add a capful of fabric conditioner to a bucket of water, rinse the mop in it, then squeeze dry and leave till the next use.

It’ll always be lovely and soft.

No more hairwrap on your vacuum head!

I was a bit sceptical that any vacuum brush roll could remain hair-free. But I’ve put the new Bissell MultiReach Active 21V Tangle Free Cordless Vacuum through its paces…and, as if by magic, not a single strand in the brush roll – they all end up in the easy-to-empty dirt tank!
Cordless is my fave way to vac; this one is efficient, lightweight and its battery runs for up to 30 minutes (and, let’s face it, who wants to be vacuuming for longer?). £199.99, available from major electrical retailers and bisselldirect.co.uk

Furniture dent in the carpet?

Pour a little warm water into the dip and gently tease up with pile with the tines of a fork.

Grease stains on clothes?

Sometimes a grease mark on a garment doesn’t come out in the wash. And once it’s washed, it’s set in.

For an effective pre-laundry treatment, squirt a dot of Fairy Liquid on the dampened stain, rub fabric to fabric and wash in the machine as normal.

For ground-in greyness on shirt collars and cuffs, rub a wet bar of soap along the marks before popping in the machine.

What’s helped you get through Lockdown?

Hello,

hasn’t it been a very horrid time for all of us during lockdown – I spent my time painting – but I’d like to know what you did to get you through?

And I’ve teamed up with a company I know to provide a prize of £500 and 6 months free Lyprinol Original if you win.

Why Lyprinol? Because I’ve found it a great help to ease joint pain due to inflammation. I’m using it and I’m giving you the chance to try some.

All you have to do is go to and then enter the form, below and tell me what has got you through lockdown. In my case my painting has been a lifesaver and really helped me. Here are some examples.

Now – here for the technical bits! This competition is only open to UK residents who are 40 years old or older. It takes 30 seconds to enter, so hit the link below and enter now.

Good luck and stay safe!              

Spend less time cleaning!

Set a stopwatch and go for it – be faster and more efficient. And only clean an item or surface if it needs it.

Get teenagers to take responsibility for their own rooms and changing beds. As long as someone else does it, they’ll be happy to let that continue.

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.

Quieten down a noisy washing machine

If your machine is particularly noisy and located in the kitchen, it can be a nuisance. Sort this by standing the machine on a carpet offcut – things will get a whole lot calmer around the place!

Hi do you have any recommendations on how to get rid of bed bugs?

Tania Phoenix asks – Hi do you have any recommendations on how to get rid of bed bugs?

Vacuum both your mattress and under the bed often, and wash bedlinen at 50 degrees.

Use anti-allergen covers on pillows.

The case for NOT making your bed in the morning

You were brought up to make your bed neatly every morning, right?

Well, it’s not the best idea because with all the nighttime sweating (each of us loses around a pint a night, more in the heat of summer) and the warm, moist atmosphere, dust mites will happily breed in their millions.

And if you’re wheezy or asthmatic, their faeces could easily trigger a nasty asthma attack.

Much healthier to freeze them out, so pull the covers right back in the morning, open the windows and allow the bed to air.
