domestic chores


Unless you are like Monica Geller, cleaning the house is probably the bane of your life. Unfortunately, it still needs to be done.

Thankfully, these tips will make it slightly easier:

Soap scum
So cleaning the bathroom is certainly not on our list of fun things to do either, but it must be done. Soap scum can be a nightmare to get off, particularly when it is on the walls of the shower. Simply grab a plastic scraper, you can get these in your local car shop, and just gently scrape it off.

Pet hair
While your dog may be the centre of your world, it doesn’t mean you have to tolerate their shedding. The easiest way to get pet hair off furniture is to use the sticky side of duct tape. Wrap the non sticky side around your hand and press onto the hair. Perfect.

No matter how often you may clean the kitchen, grease will build up and it is a nightmare to get off. However, we have a trick up our sleeves! Simply heat your sponge in the microwave for about 20 seconds, spray on your kitchen cleaner and wipe the grease away. The hot sponge will make it come off a lot easier.



It’s time to pull out that lonely container of baking soda from the back of your cupboard and put it to some good use.

Unclog your sink
Got a clogged sink? No problem. Pour your baking soda down the drain and leave to sit for about an hour before pouring boiled vinegar on top.

Freshen up stinky carpets
Sprinkle a little baking soda over your carpets and leave to sit for about a half an hour. Vacuum it up and voila, a nice smelling room.

Brighten your whites
Add a cup of baking soda into your next wash for bright, fresh smelling clothes.

Clean your grout (the bit between your tiles)
Cleaning your grout can be impossible but not when you have the aid of a little baking soda. Rub a little onto it, spray with water and leave to sit for ten minutes. Scrub away with a toothbrush… an old toothbrush.
