Here's a tip for the super scrimpers amongst us. Throw away, or more sensibly use up, all your house cleaning products. The only cleaning agents you need are as follows: White vinegar, Bi-carbonate of soda, Lemons! Dilute the white vinegar in one part to two with water, add the juice of half a lemon. You can use this cleaning agent for any and all surfaces, kitchen, bathroom, paintwork, glass, floors etc. Make a paste with Bi-carb and water and use it for cleaning ovens, cookers, limescale, sinks baths, showers etc. Sprinkle Bi-carb on the carpet and allow to 'soak in', at least 15 minutes, then vacuum for a clean fresh smelling carpet. A group of students, sharing a house, who generally spent up to £30 a month on cleaning products, reduced this to £3 and felt they did a better job!
