I make no secret of the fact that I am a complete and utter neat freak. I like my house to be clean, tidy and for everything to be in its place. However, since becoming a mum I have realised that tidying the house to the standard that I used to is a bit like trying to empty the sea with a thimble. It’s impossible. I don’t have the time, energy or inclination to clean that much anymore. These days I have to make do with a quick whizz around the house with a vacuum, and washing our dirty dishes and clothes – anything else is a bonus!

Recently Bissell got in touch with me to tell me about their 7 fabulous cleaning hacks and asked me if I would like to share them on my blog. I hope you find them useful. :)

These tips are super, super clever and I know I’ll definitely be using them in the future:

    Add some dishwasher rinse aid to warm water – brilliant for cleaning windows, leaving them sparkling & smear/streak free

    I like to make my own household cleaners. It’s super easy and I haven’t had to buy one in years.

    Use neat bleach on the tiles and grout in the bathroom to remove mould.

    I put wipes on old soaks on my feet, with elastic bands, then walk around all the crooks and crannies on my lino floor!

    Cover your trays in foil before putting food on them for oven cooking. Saves washing it up!

    I too use white vinegar a lot for cleaning. If you can get past the smell it does work!

    White vinegar on windows works a treat

    Put newspaper on top of wardrobes and kitchen cupboards so when you spring clean you just roll all the dust and grease up in the paper and throw away

    Vinegar is a great natural cleaner x

    makeup wipes and a hairdryer are your friends when you’re in a rush to go out and you find a stain on your jeans… bad but true

    Lemon juice and water in a bowl in the microwave for 30 seconds, removes any nasty smells and makes it super easy to clean as you just have to wipe it over with some kitchen towel and all the dirt and food comes off
