Cleaning without cleaning products

We’re helping you save money with your washing but let us go one step further – we’re here at the Ideal Home Show Shop with some handy cleaning tips for your home which make use of items around the home – that means saving on expensive cleaning products! White vinegar blasts stains and a 1:5 solution of white vinegar and water will unclog shower heads in a jiffy when soaked. Nasty lime-scale down your toilet can be cleared by pouring a can of fizzy cola into the bowl and leaving for an hour – much cheaper than a descaler and not to mention easier. After all that work why not relax with a nice glass of wine; for your shower – white wine removes water marks, streaks and limescale to leave you with a beautiful shine. Buff with newspaper afterwards and you’ll almost be able to see your own reflection.
