1. Windows

A mixture of 25% vinegar and 75% warm water is all that you need to make your windows shine again. Rub the mixture onto your windows with an old cotton towel and then dry it by giving them a good rub with scrunched up newspaper.

2. Taps

You can remove the build-up of lime scale around the base of your taps by simply wrapping a paper towel around them and giving them a thorough soaking with hot vinegar. Leave for at least an hour and then give them a rigorous buffing to restore their shine.

3. Toilets

Say goodbye to using messy bleach and germ-infested toilet brushes. You can give your toilet a cleaning it’ll never forget with just a paper towel and some old fashioned scouring powder. Simply put the paper towel down the toilet when you’re finished and flush.

4. Microwave ovens

Prepare a solution consisting of 2 tablespoons of lemon juice or vinegar and 2 cups of water. Place the solution in an open microwave-proof bowl and microwave on full power for 3 minutes. Remove the bowl afterwards and wipe the inside of your microwave clean with paper towels.

5. Ovens

Even the most stubborn oven can be thoroughly cleaned with a simple paste made up of nothing more than baking soda, salt and hot water. Just leave for 15 minutes after applying and then rinse.

6. Garbage bins

Do you empty your kitchen bin when it gets too full or too smelly? Banish any nasty odors by simply pouring a generous portion of talcum powder or baking powder into the bottom.

7. Drains

If you’re suffering from a clogged bathroom or kitchen drain, try pouring down a mixture of ½ cup of white vinegar and ½ cup of baking soda. Allow to foam for a few minutes before washing it down with approximately 8 cups of boiling water.

8. Kitchen

Clean out any out-of-date foods from your cupboards, fridge and freezer. Rearrange any foods that need to be stored in an airtight container; you can self-seal bags using handy snappers from kitchen stores. Make sure you clean down all surfaces with anti-bacterial spray before you replace food.

Dividing Line

Don’t be tempted to ignore the tide of splashes and grubby marks on your kitchen walls, even if your worktops are super clean. Do a tour of your kitchen with a wet cloth and anti-bacterial spray. Check the fridge and freezer doors and behind the sink areas.
