Some people's favourite, however most peoples dreaded task - the house spring clean. That one time a year you dust off your cleaning materials and decide it's really time to go 'all in' with the cleaning supplies. Unscrewing those siezed up bottles of bleach and replacing the fuse in your hoover... ok maybe not quite that bad - but let's face it, the deep clean doesn't happen too often!


Now cleaning drains can be a horrible task, there are many products on the market available to burn away any hair or blockages down there - but for many people the smell and the dangerous chemicals is a daunting task. What people may not be aware of is two commonly found household products can be used to the same effect! We love this article over at Cunchy Betty explaining how you can use baking soda and vinegar to sort out your dodgy pipes! 



Another favourite natural clean is for your taps and faucets. Instead of using harsh chemicals around your sink or washing area, a better smelling and 'friendlier' option - use lemon! The natural acidity of lemons helps remove any rust stains or hard water residue from your tap areas... also leaving a lovely citric smell!




Well we had to mention our easy clean shutters of course! Plantation window shutters are undoubtedly the easiest to clean window treatment available. Due to their sterdy construction and simplistic design, they can be wiped down with a damp (not wet, unless they're polyvinyl!) cloth. This will completely clean of all dust and any stains that may of occured.
