10 great household cleaning tips

Here are 10 tips you can do this summer:

  1. Eucalyptus oil removes the gummy residue left by shop stickers.
  2. Buffing a marble bench or table top with car polish leaves a thin, invisible film that helps reduce the risk of stains.
  3. To remove furniture indentations from pure wool carpet place a tea towel over the area and then press with a warm iron. The heat will lift the fibers. Do not attempt this with synthetic or a wool/synthetic mix carpet.
  4. To stop bathroom mirrors steaming up, regularly rub a dry bar of soap over the surface with a clean cloth. 
  5. To keep spiders or any other nasty surprises out of shoes you keep outside, (such as your gardening shoes or work boots), place old stockings over the top of them. Make sure the stockings don’t have holes in them, and if they don’t fit snugly over the top, use an elastic band to secure them.
  6. To make candles last longer, cover with a plastic bag and place in the freezer for 24 hours before lighting. 
  7. To prevent buttons from becoming loose or undone, dab a little clear nail varnish on the top thread or onto the stem of the thread and leave to dry. 
  8. To pick up small fragments of broken glass, press pieces of bread onto the affected area.
  9. If you have an aquarium, save the water each time you change it and water your house plants with it. It’s full of nutrients and makes a great fertiliser.
  10. To stop ants entering your house, draw a chalk line on the ground where you want them to stop. If you live in a rainy area where ants are a problem, you must re-draw the chalk lines each time it rains.

Its all about adding value to your client and ensuring higher levels of efficiency in your business…
