Green Tip


How to dispose of low-energy light bulbs: When you’re low energy bulbs finally need replacing rather than throwing them away, they can be taken to your local Recycling Centre or anywhere else that collects fluorescent tubes. They will then be taken away for recycling.


Ladies - If lip gloss seems to have run out, put it in a mug of hot water for ten minutes.

This melts any gloss that was stuck to the tube so you'll get a few more wears out of it.


On holiday, many of us are bitten by insects. Try dabbing some toothpaste directly to the bite to instantly soothe the itching.


In the Garden


An old potato peeler makes a useful gadget for removing weeds and moss from in between between paving stones.


In the Kitchen


Try putting your old washing-up sponges through a dishwater cycle. This will give them a new lease of life!


Bubble Trouble


Get rid of any remaining bubbles left after your bath by spraying deodorant on them.


Top it off


Spare wallpaper strips are ideal for covering the tops of kitchen cupboards - keep clean by changing the paper regularly.


Peaceful Post


Letter box banging in the wind? Stretch some rubber bands over the flap to reduce the noise.
