Being the domestic goddesses that we are can be a tiring and usually thankless job. So to help make it that little bit easier for you, here are six home hacks that actually work


Clean venetian blinds with vinegar

Dip a clean cloth into a solution of one cup of water with one cup of vinegar and give your blinds a quick wipe.


Blow away your water rings

Simply blow a hairdryer on the ring as close as possible to get rid of the mark.


Use salt for sparkling cast iron pots

Slightly wet the pot and sprinkle in sea salt to remove any food residue.


Quick microwave clean

Fill up a microwaveable cup with a little lemon juice and some water and put it in on medium high for about three minutes. This should lift any grease so all you need to do is wipe it clean with a cloth.


Clean shower head

For a really dirty shower head, tie a plastic bag filled with vinegar to the faucet and leave there overnight. Simply rinse away in the morning.


Absorb bin juice

Nobody likes bin juice so absorb it by putting newspaper at the bottom of the bag.
