We caught up with Rita, who gave us some useful tips during this time.

 

Tip One

While most plastic cutting boards can be popped into the dishwasher, wooden ones are a slightly different piece. Luckily, you can get out those difficult stains in your wooden boards by rubbing them with some lemon and salt.

 

 

Tip Two

Dusting is an imperfect art. However, when you need to pick up that handful of craft glitter your kids spilled, get pet hair off a lampshade, or just dust a lint roller does the trick.

 

 

Tip Three

Cleaning the microwave can be a difficult job. Luckily, a little steam can make the job a whole lot easier, using a microwave safe bowl with a few tablespoons of white vinegar and a cup of water. Heat the mixture on high for a few minutes. Your microwave will quickly steam up, making stains a breeze to clean off afterward.

 

 

Tip Four

Never, ever spray chemicals or even water directly onto your sensitive TV screen. Instead, gently wipe the screen with a dry microfibre cloth to remove dust and other debris, but don’t press too hard.

 

 

Tip Five

Kettles, coffee machines, washing machines all need regular descaling to avoid the build up of limescale especially in London where the water is very hard. Using a good descaler regularly will keep the limescale away and It doesn’t take long to do. Definitely worth it to protect your equipment and lengthen it’s life.

 

 

Tip Six

Nobody wants to load and unload two rounds of dishes from the dishwasher when they could cram all of their dirty plates and silverware into one. However, cramming everything into one load will result in dirtier dishes in the long run.  Overloaded dishwashers resulted in less effective cleanings. Better to save yourself the frustration of unloading unclean dishes and do things right the first time.
