Get your home sparkling clean with this definitive list of top cleaning tips and tricks.

  • Do you have pets? Eliminate pet hair by putting on a wet rubber glove and wipe your hand over surfaces where cat hair clings to the most. The hair will stick right to it
  • Don't get caught out the next time you have friends over and somebody accidentally spills red wine on your carpet. A dab of foaming shaving cream can help remove red wine spills.
  • If you have tupperware that is starting to smell like the food that was in them, wash them with hat water and two tablespoons of baking soda.
  • Lint rollers can be used on cloth lamp shades to lift dust, as often vacuum attachments won't work.
  • If you haven't got enough time to clean your bathroom properly; baby wipes are useful for quick surface cleanups in kitchens and bathrooms.
  • Removing stubborn price tags from crockery or glasswear, use a cotton pad soaked with rubbing alcohol. The alcohol will dissolve the sticky glue quicker than scrubbing and picking at it.
  • Get your windows and mirrors sparkling clean by using old newspaper to clean instead of kitchen roll. It works great and also you're recycling.
  • If you have discoloured china such as teacups and teapots, make a paste of baking soda and water. It's gentle enough for most fine china, and it's easy on the hands and the wallet too.
  • When you're washing narrow-necked glass vases and decanters, add a little uncooked rice to water. This will leave your glassware sparkling clean.

If you're struggling to keep on top of your housework, get in touch with one of these recommended cleaners who will put the sparkle back into your home.
